Fun With Math!

… K, not really fun.

But it’s applied math.  And it’s interesting.

From John’s place:

Defense spending, where Democrats look first for any cutting? It increased a lethargic 1 percent, as did Medicaid spending. Social Security and Medicare, on the other hand, increased 4 percent, according to The Hill’s reporting. That would mean none of those four even reached the total Federal Budget increase of 4.2 percent. So where was the huge increase?

As usual, go read the rest.
