17. The money has NEVER existed (at least not in last 30 years).
We deficit spend each year = putting it on credit card.

If Republicans in 2003? paid for it they would have put it on the credit card.

If the Democratic majority in 2005 decided to pay for it they .... would have put it on the credit card.

What your saying would only make sense if
a) once laws are written they are in stone and can never change. funding can never be added or removed
AND
b) There was a bunch of cash lying around when Republicans controlled Congress but all of a sudden we ran out of money.

Cut Defense budget 2% and use those funds to fully fund NCLB. It can be done. Neither party even attempts to do so.
