Please, Sir, Can You Spare Some Change?

If we're reading this document correctly (via Think Progress), then the White House will ask Congress for another $110 billion (with a B) for Iraq next year.

Now I'm just throwin' this out there, cause god knows there are tons of places where a few billion could come from, but: Do you think they could make do with $108 billion?

Jesus.

except reality show that the government is actually tightening the money supply, and has been for quite a while now. the fed is singularly focused, as it should be, on inflation.
