The White House came out with the 2009 Budget. Maybe you saw shots of the enormous stacks of pages which make up the thing. Three trillion dollars. Biggest budget ever. And since either the White House, Congress, or both have failed at putting war spending into the budget and instead leaving it to be funded supplementally, costs for Iraq and Afghanistan aren't included in the $3T. That's a "T". How's that for smaller government?
Oh, and go Giants. Now we just need a Manning v. Manning Bowl.
