Priority Problems

From TomPaine.com:
The numbers don't lie, and in this case, they tell a story that you won't hear from the White House spin machine. President Bush's new budget includes tax breaks that will reduce revenues by $130 billion over five years; massive cuts to important domestic programs like food stamps; and increases in the deficit level to $1.39 trillion. The Center On Budget And Policy Priorities' review of Bush's budget details exactly what's going to be cut—and how a tiny segment of ultra-rich Americans will benefit while the rest of the country struggles. The report also provides easy-to-understand answers to questions like "What caused deficits to return?" (Hint: It wasn't runaway domestic spending.) Link to the report on the title above.
