E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post has a great commentary on the budget and Iraq up today that I would like to point people to. The quote that really grabbed me was this one:
Consider only this number: Interest costs on Iraq-related debt will be more than $23 billion for fiscal 2008. That sum is almost exactly the amount separating Bush and Congress on spending levels for the entire budget now being debated.
That is just plain wrong.
