Does money grow on trees?

The news reports today say that the Bush administration is asking for more money to fund the war in Iraq bringing the total to over $400 billion. Where does this money come from? Our tax dollars surely can’t pay for all this. Then to top it off, officials are asking for more money to rebuild from Hurricane Katrina bringing the total for that over $100 billion. This is an excellent way to increase the national debt and make sure that many generations to come are saddled with this burden. Cutting a few billion here and there on programs is nothing compared to this whopper. I’m sure Bush will ask Congress for more money for the war that will never end.
