Where will the money come from?

Ok, recovering from Katrina is going to cost a bundle. Tom Delay says there's nothing more to cut in the budget. Pat Toomey, head of the conservative Club for Growth disagrees:
"There has never been a time where there is more total spending and more wasteful spending in Washington than we have today... There is ample opportunity to find the offsets we need so that this does not have to be a fiscal disaster as well as a natural disaster."

Maybe a good place to "offset" would be that $223 million bridge to nowhere in Alaska.

Update 9/19/05: I'm not the only one thinking this way. It's actually two bridges, for nearly half a billion dollars.
