Oversight and accountability

By Creature

The off-balance-sheet war no more. From the NYT:

Frustrated by the Bush administration’s piecemeal financing of the Iraq war, Democrats are planning to assert more control over the billions of dollars a month being spent on the conflict when they take charge of Congress in January. [...]

“We are now going on four years into this war and they are still funding it with these patchwork supplementals without oversight and without accountability,” Mr. Conrad said, “and that just has to stop.”

The teenager-in-chief may drive the car, but the Democrats now control the keys.

Budget more.
