Hmmm...seems as if Senator Macaca (or, as Watertiger suggested the other day, Macacawitz), also opted for skinflint mode.
Actually, what's pretty amazing is that they'd even need a supplemental--the Defense Department has had roughly $2 TRILLION dollars to play with over the last five years. Maybe it's just me, but you'd figure that they could find the money for equipment SOMEWHERE, given that it's the FUCKING DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, at least officially, as opposed to the Department of Let's Throw Money at Pet Projects.
Anyway, check it out...and that's not the only instance of our government doing exactly the opposite of what it should be.
