Trouble CA (5:54 pm) "the deficit was 1.4 trillion courtesy of the GOP administration and the WARS. It is under 900 billion this year. They have also cut several trillion out of the next 10 years." This compares to gwb's largest deficit of 413 billion how?? Oops, over double after 4+ years of "fantastic" economic growth, right? ("fantastic" comes from the lips of rabid LW apologists)

The NRCC is out with its new "waste list" which totals more than $18 billion. So what exactly is the government spending your money on? How about:

-$1 million on a fruit fly sexual attractiveness study

-$1.3 million for old fashioned x-rays of prisoners. x-rays of prisoners

-$1.5 million on designing a video game controller

-$100,000 on taxpayer funded comedy group tour in India
