"Two Plans, One Ridiculous Headline"

Tony Blair has a plan to double aid to Africa to $50 billion, one that he’s been promoting around the world for months.

George Bush opposes Blair’s plan. But suddenly, on the day Blair was set to visit the United States, Bush “unveiled” his own plan to spend $674 million more in emergency aid in Africa — funds “that Congress had already approved for needy countries.”

So, two plans: either spend $25 billion in new funds, or $674 million in old funds.
