I don't worry too much about that. Those who try usually can't get the backing off the labels.

Then again the odds are you don't understand what I wrote [or why], if history serves.

And the $120 billion / year that has been regularly pissed away in Iraq will soon be coming home again, before 2010 is relegated to the history books.
Funny, as I understand it these are the same programs that Bush tried to cut last year I think it was. They got blocked by congress.

A few of the 121 programs were, like the $400 million-a-year program that pays states and counties for keeping illegal immigrants in their jails. But I'm thinking that the "Ending $26 billion in oil and gas industry tax breaks, which he called "unjustifiable loopholes" in the tax system that other industries do not get." might not have been on the Bush list.

So maybe "the same" is not the phrase you were looking for.

But which is it McBear? Is the $17 Billion a "Significant" cut or not? Obama says it is now but for some reason he wouldn't say that with McCains $18 Billion in Proposed cuts to Earmarks.

If I understand that correctly Earmarks are all pork.
