Bush to Demand Nearly $200 Billion for the Iraq War in 2008

According to today's LA Times:
The new spending request is likely to push the cumulative cost of the war in Iraq alone through 2008 past the $600-billion mark -- more than the Korean War and nearly as much as the Vietnam War, based on estimates by government budget officials.
Thus, we see why he does not want to spend as much as Congress does on children's health insurance coverage here at home. More money spent on taking care of us here at home is less money to spend on his Iraq expedition.
