Any Old Excuse to Spend

Here is the text of an email I sent today to my congressman. Any old excuse will do for the Spendocrats to spend other peoples' money:

It is reported on page one of today's Wall Street Journal, a source of usually impeccable reliability, that Congress intends to delay the extension of President Bush's tax cuts. In other areas, as well, there appears to be a new mood of "spend, spend, spend" created by Hurricane Katrina. No matter that private institutions are actually picking up most of the tab for relocating and housing displaced citizens.

Well, I guess any old excuse will do. Apparently there is no limit to politicians' insatiable appetites to spend other peoples' money. To say that many Republicans are going along willingly is simply another article in the growing indictment against the current Republican Party leadership.
