Senate Hearing Focuses on Domestic-Partner Benefits

Lawmakers discuss expanding benefits for federal workers, but largely ignore the cost to taxpayers.
The Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act (S. 1102) includes health and disability insurance, an expansion of family-leave programs, life and long-term care insurance and other compensation.
The Congressional Budget Office has calculated the cost of implementing the bill at more than $1 billion over 10 years. Democrat committee members are expected to largely ignore the price tag.

Bush Administration Adds $4 Trillion To National Debt

On the day President Bush took office, the national debt stood at $5.727 trillion. The latest number from the Treasury Department shows the national debt now stands at more than $9.849 trillion. That’s a 71.9 percent increase on Mr. Bush’s watch.
Each time you go up a notch, eg; thousand, million, billion, trillion, it is 1,000 times the previous number.

1000 thousand = 1 million
1000 million = 1 billion
1000 billion = 1 trillion
1000 trillion = 1 quadrillion

IOW, 1 billion = 1 thousanth of a trillion.

Focus on the Family, and their conservative ego-addicted cohorts (my parents included), are worried about 1 four thousanth of the debt left behind by their hero, George W. Bush.

4 trillion debt, AOK
1 four thousanth of that (over 10 years) for domestic partnerships, evil.
Two failed “wars,” tax cuts for the richest of the rich, billions funded in non-competition Iraq contracts, waste fraud and abuse in EVERY direction imaginable, and they claim that it’s the cost to taxpayers that they’re concerned with.

Clearly, Focus on the Family approves of this message:

Focus on the Family always has been a dishonest, hypocritical organization. Hate groups like them and the KKK always are.
