Remember the House’s climate change bill? The massive job-killing energy tax that’s going to hobble the American economy if it becomes law? Remember the CBO’s estimate that “the net annual economywide cost of the cap-and-trade program in 2020 would be $22 billion.”

If I recall correctly, the Obama administration’s proposal is to spend $30 billion more per year in Afghanistan over and above what we’re already spending. Ben Nelson wants to pay for it with war bonds. Republicans think Obama should spend even more!
