my translation of bush's quote: non-discretionary spending is social security, medicare, and medicaid. discretionary spending is everything else. almost all discretionary spending is the military or other "security" expenses. what he said is that we increased spending on absolutely everything, but we didn't increase it as fast as last year on the tiny sliver of discretionary spending that isn't military et. al.
