More Money for War

The President has said he expects to have his money by the end of the
week - $100 billion for more war, before Memorial Day. Congress should
hear from every American. Please help spread the word. If Congress
proceeds, however, we should keep a sharp eye on the transaction. The
government has no money. According to the House Budget Committee website,
it is more than eight trillion dollars in debt. All bills for raising
revenues must originate in the House (U.S. Constitution, Art. I, Section
7) and this must include borrowing. The Senate cannot spend funds the
government does not have, and the House, whose members' salaries rise
automatically with the cost of inflation, must tell us how it intends to
raise the money.
