For the first time in more than a decade, the House managed to pass a spending bill before the end of a budget year. The way you should read that is, "It took more than a decade, but the House finally did their job."
They've got plenty of money to spend. This year the government has taken in a record amount of money, besting the last record by a clean 8.4 billion. But that hasn't stopped the spending machine from finding new ways to spend all that loot.
Even with record taxes the government still spent 673 billion more than it brought in.
I've said it before, and I'll repeat it now. It will never be enough. There isn't enough money on the planet to satisfy society.
All that today PLUS if you've felt a little overly masculated lately, you might want to check out a new program from Duke to help put you in your place. All that and more on the show today.
