Bush tax cuts are aimed at getting the economy out of recession, a problem so severe you were convinced we would have slid back into a double dip recession by this time.

As you know, I still feel that we're headed back into recession.

The war on terrorism has been expensive. Wars frequently are. I hyappen to support that and am not going to count the change on a vital national security issue.

But the expense of the terror war, nor the tax cuts can be reconciled with the ordinary spending increases.

Under the cloud of the war on terror, this president has allowed the rest of the *non-war* budget to explode and grow out of control. It has successfully been backdoored and camo'd by the arguements that you made.
