Hillary failed her bar exams in ILLINOIS, went to work in small town law firm in arkansas and married the governor,

They could fund this "tax vacation" by not earmarking funds for any bridges to nowhere this summer. That will not happen so it will likely lead us to borrow more from China.

An economist noted there are not enough bridges [that could be canceled] multiplied by ten in the earmark budget that would come close to covering 9 Billion dollars.

True. We could also look at the billions illegal aliens cost the taxpayers, and the money spent on entitlement programs.

How much is the war costing us that we would not be spending on the war if we weren't at war?
