Bush Signs Borrowing Bill

Courtesy of The Diablogue Sept. 12, 2005

Reuters News Service reported late last night that George W. Bush signed the congressional authorization for FEMA to borrow more money to fund the National Flood Insurance Program. The wire service report added, "A Senate aide said the $18.5 billion Congress approved on Friday should sustain the program through February."

On a related subject, over $221 billion has been spent to date on the Iraq War -- up from The Diablogue's early September comparison of nearly $194 billion. Yet, not one day has gone by when we had to stop writing Iraq checks.
