U.S. President George W. Bush said he's confident the U.S. budget can handle the cost of rebuilding the Gulf Coast and ruled out raising taxes to pay for the effort.
Bush also said the money for rebuilding should come from cuts in domestic spending, not by ``raising taxes.'' He said he would work with Congress ``to make sure that we manage our budget in a wise way. That is going to mean cutting other programs.''
BTW General Goege S Patton Hated the Establishment, Hated Politics, and was Definitely Not a Government Yes man, He was a warrior[because he kicked Rommels butt], rebel and could not be contained by the powers that Be. He in no way could be politically correct.....it goes against his charactor.
Like I said before, too bad the DOD couldn't or wouldn't protect us on 9/11.

How about the state governments reject the entirety of all federal “pork” spending for 2005 for their respective states as a gesture of goodwill, good faith and general reconstruction of infrastructure to the benefit of all?
