"Just throwing more money at something does not make it better"
Said by Republicans time and time again when it comes to education or any and all social programs but when it comes to Military apparently this doesn't hold true...Obama introduced the largest Defense Budget in our country's history and Republicans didn't utter a single word about Deficit Spending...funny how that works...

1. Democratic-socialist Michael Harrington said in the 1970s, regarding poverty:
"Throwing money at a problem often doesn't work... except when the speciffic problem is that some people do not have enough money."

(paraphrasing from memory.)

2. An excellent reason to limit executive compensation, imo.
