More Down the Rat-Hole

Good thing we are not making progress:

The House of Representatives voted to advance the Pentagon another $45 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on Monday as it passed a $409 billion defense spending bill.

The House approved the emergency "bridge fund," which would bring costs of the U.S. military operations to more than $300 billion, as President Bush was forced to step up his defense of the Iraq war in the face of sliding public support.

Did they not just recently pass an $80 billion plus appropriation?
