Democrat or Republican, There's Always More Money for War

By Doug Bandow

The Obama Administration wants to freeze discretionary spending–except for the military.

Reports CNN:

The proposed freeze, which could help position Obama in the political center by sharpening his credentials on fiscal discipline, would exempt the budgets of the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs, along with some international programs.

“We are at war, and we’re going to make sure our troops are funded adequately,” one of the senior officials said.

Precisely how does this differ from the Bush administration?  So much for “change” in Washington.

Apparently the more things “change,” the more they stay the same!
