What Leaders?

Fareed Zakaria’s getting angry (at last??). In his latest editorial for Newsweek, “Leaders Who Won’t Choose,” he writes:

People wonder whether we can afford Iraq and Katrina. The answer is, easily. What we can’t afford simultaneously is $1.4 trillion in tax cuts and more than $1 trillion in new entitlement spending over the next 10 years. To take one example, if Congress did not make permanent just one of its tax cuts, the repeal of estate taxes, it would generate $290 billion over the next decade. That itself pays for most of Katrina and Iraq.

Not that Bush will listen.
