Hey Big Spender!

Running Tally on President's Spending Proposals at $1.2 Trillion

Elephant is curious about the cost of President Bush's spending proposals from last night's speech. Using the President's own website and only including the health care proposals and Social Security Reform, the total new spending is at $1.2 trillion dollars. The true number is likely to be much, much higher. I'll keep you posted as I search for government reports that detail costs for these programs. As it stands now, the 'conservative' President just proposed increasing government spending by at least 50%! And I should be worried about Kerry? I don't think so.
