Bush Signs Bill for Whole Lot of Billions

This just in from the Associated Press:

"President Bush on Wednesday signed a $555 billion bill that funds the Iraq war well into next year and keeps government agencies running through next September."

AP says Bush had big reservations about the more than 900 "earmarks" for special interests, but signed anyway. The bill includes $70 billion for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
