Hang on here. The war in Iraq is costing about $200 million per day, or a billion in less than a week. Yet George W Bush has just vetoed a bill that would give NIH an additional $1 billion per year, raising the budget from $29 billion to $30 billion.
And what does he do? He accuses Congress of being on a “spending spree.”
Here’s hoping the guy chokes on the irony.
