Bush Budget Priorities Revealed

| | Comments (0)

Associated Press Writer, Alan Fram reported yesterday the following:

The Bush administration has told officials who oversee federal education, domestic security, veterans and other programs to prepare preliminary 2006 budgets that would cut spending after the presidential election, according to White House documents.

There is no question the deficit must be reduced. But, many would choose to cut spending in other areas, like elective foreign wars, putting colonies on Mars, Congressional pork spending, reducing gov't medicare costs by allowing the gov't to negotiate Rx drug prices, and corporate welfare, handouts, and bailouts.

Noticeably absent from Bush's considered cuts are Dept. Of Defense and the Justice Department. It would appear President Bush holds war and police power as his two top priorities while all other areas should be cut. This is the sacrifice Bush will place on the American people while he tries to make tax cuts for the wealthy permanent.

At least Sen. Kerry and Ralph Nader would reinstate higher taxation on the very wealthy which would help reduce the deficit. I don't think we can afford another four years of Bush Jr. So, how would you reduce the deficits which portend huge drops in living standards for workers over the next few decades.
