"When I saw that the House passed a $649 billion Defense spending bill, I became EVEN MORE convinced that Congress should REFUSE to raise the debt ceiling. This bill costs some $6,000 per family, and it doesn't even include all Defense-related funding. Estimates have the entire so-called 'national security' spending at $1-1.2 trillion, which ups the 'per family' cost to $10-12 thousand dollars!" (07/15/11)
