Robbing Peter to Pay Paul

This just in from the National Journal's Earlybird edition of Thursday March 3rd.

"The House Appropriations Committee is preparing to boost military spending by $1.8 billion in President Bush's $81.9 billion FY05 war supplemental while cutting about $1.5 billion in foreign aid provisions," CongressDailyAM reports. "Foreign aid requests the committee plans to pare back range from $400 million in funds for unspecified allies in the war on terrorism to $45 million in debt relief for tsunami-ravaged Indian Ocean countries."
