According to the GAO, the government has wasted $1.4B on anti-drug ads. No shit. Of course these ads aren’t meant to really stop drug use; they’re meant to give the illusion that something is being done.
So what does borrow and spend Republican Bush propose? $120M more.
Between that, Iraq, and Sen. Stevens’s bridge to nowhere, I could have provided universal healthcare, secured the ports, killed bin Laden, and funded education enough to support NCLB (if I would have put in place).
