QUOTE OF THE DAY

“After the 1994 Los Angeles earthquake, Clinton asked for more than $3 billion to offset the new costs. The Democratic Congress gave it to him. After the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, Clinton asked for more than $1 billion in cuts. The newly Republican Congress insisted on more than $15 billion in offsets. (Letx92s hear it for divided government!) Since taking office, Bush has yet to ask for a single offset to disaster-related spending.” – Ryan Sager (reg req), today. Yep, fiscally, Clinton-Gingrich was a conservative administration. Bush, in contrast, is a compulsive spendthrift.
