Halliburton Needs More Love

Bush Asks Congress For $46 Billion More In War Funding

"At their current rate, war appropriations could reach $1 trillion by the time Bush leaves office, a total that by some measures would exceed the cost of the Korean and Vietnam wars combined."

But wants to cut government-subsidized heat to low-income households.

"The Senate wants to keep LIHEAP's budget at $2.16 billion. The House voted to raise the program's budget to $2.66 billion. But the White House wants to cut it to $1.78 billion, according to a story by Reuters. To put that another way, President Bush wants to spend about 3½ days' worth of war funding to heat our nation's poor, while the House wants LIHEAP to have the equivalent of about five days' worth of war funding."

But Halliburton needs that money in time for Christmas bonuses.
