My friend works for a tech company that makes computers for commercial trucks. the military paid 3.2 million dollars for us to make computers for some of their trucks in 2008.

Wasteful spending everywhere needs to be cut.

The truth hurts, especially when you're coming awfully close to being crowned Captain Six Trillion.  Steve Moore's exclusive sit-down with House Speaker John Boehner reveals that the president is in deep ideological denial, and can get a bit testy when confronted with the facts:
