Sounds about right, and a bit like deja vu when the argument has already been made that our troops are not adequately supplied for what they're being asked to do. Guess now we know why and no, Mr. Bray, it is not that WE don't understand the "appropriations process." What we don't understand, however, is how stealing from our troops is considered an "appropriate process....." Forgive the sarcasm here, but this literally is an outrage, and I really wonder how these people can sleep, safely, mind you, in their beds at night without their conscience haunting them.....

I believe you hit the nail on the head, man, and it reminds me a little of an idea I heard on the news today, the suggestion has been made to have a lottery, similar to Powerball, to help pay for healthcare. One guy says, "Great. All the people that have already won the lottery have nothing to show for it, so let's all play the lottery for healthcare and still have nothing to show for it..."
