Budget Cuts Affect YOU

If you are a student, small business owner, veteran or migrant worker, or if you are poor or disabled and need food and/or health care, you are screwed. The new Bush budget takes a sledgehammer to a whole host of social programs (150 to be exact) while making permanent the tax cuts (aka welfare for the rich) that were enacted several years back--and all this while not including spending on the Iraq war or the Social Security nightmare in the budget at all, and leaving a deficit of some $400 billion. These people are all heart, I tell you. Perhaps we should consult our dictionaries...

Did I miss something here??
