You have to love a wire service headline with Bush cutting funding to cops
in 50+ papers across the country. His budget announcement is going about as well as his State of the Union speech.
Bush priorities: Maintain tax cuts for wealthiest Americans at all costs, Moon&Mars, $1.5B to promote marriage
Bush cuts: Police, Education, E.P.A., funding for Center for Disease Control
Sen. Don Nickles (R-OK), one of the few Repubs who still care about the budget, looked super pissed at the GOP Congressional press conference discussing the new budget. When asked if he made the same assumptions the president made about making all the tax cuts permanent he replied "No."
It should be a fun session in Congress for Shrub.
