Interesting Equation

There's an interesting equation posted over at Bring It On that I thought would make for an interesting query in Scotty's next press bewildering (oop, I mean breifing).
Katrina + Rita + Iraq – Taxes = How Much?.
They also quote Barack Obama:
Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) said September 18, 2005 on Face the Nation

"This I think is where the problem comes in. You can't fight a war in Iraq that's costing upwards of 200 billion dollars and rebuild Katrina-rebuild N.O. and respond to the aftermath of Katrina-and try to deal with all the other domestic needs that we have, and- then cut taxes for the wealthiest 1% of Americana. I mean there was talk right-immediately after the hurricane that the republicans in the senate were still going to push forward with the repeal the estate tax which is mind boggling I think. We need some adult supervision of the budget process...”

They also post a few solution suggestions lest you think all such bloggers do is lament:
1. At the very least, allow the tax cuts to sunset...
2. Cut the pork from the budget...
3. Re-address transportation bill...
4. Re-address the equally bad energy bill...
Any further suggestions can be posted in the comment section bellow this post. Thank you.
