Well, we'll never know unless we actually try. I don't recall any recent annoucements about Bush dropping 87 billion at home, nevermind a trillion on more practical domestic issues. Did I miss one?
Yes. You've missed the No Child Left Behind Act (increased federal education spending by 49 percent) and the expansion of Medicare to include prescription drugs (at least $450 billion over 10 years, more likely five times that as Medicare cost projections have historically proven very, very low).
