NPR's Alex Chadwick talks to Steve Kosiak, director of budget studies at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments in Washington, D.C., about President Bush's expected announcement that he will request about $80 billion more to cover the costs of fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and for other costs in the so-called "war on terror."
