By the way, does anyone know where Paige got the "half-trillion dollar"
figure. Not very long ago, the figure I always saw was $300 billion. Then
Paige started using $400 billion, now five. I know that money has no
meaning in the Bush administration, but a 67% increase (from $300 billion to
$500 billion) represents quite an increase in anything. Has anyone noticed
the flood of new greenbacks?
