This is the most outlandish atrocity in the history of America.
Increasing the military budget and taking away money
from the elderly and the poor. This budget also sets the
record for the biggest deficit in American history.

Welcome to the NWO !!

the spending proposal, which shows the government spending $3 trillion
in a 12-month period for the first time in history, squeezes most of
government outside of national security, and also seeks $196 billion in
savings over the next five years in the government's giant health care
programs -- Medicare for the elderly and Medicaid for the poor.

Even with those savings, Bush projects that the deficits, which had been
declining, will soar to near-record levels, hitting $410 billion this year and
$407 billion in 2009. The all-time high deficit in dollar terms was $413 billion
in 2004.

CNN: Bush's Budget

OK, it's time to kick the senior citizens out onto the street so we
can stay in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am sick to death of this
administration. PLEASE somebody get this arswhole out of
office. He is ruining our country.

Budget highlights
DEFICITS: The plan will claim deficits in the $400 billion range for this
year and next
DEFENSE: The Pentagon would get a $35 billion increase to $515 billion
for core programs, about 7 percent, with war costs additional
MEDICARE AND MEDICAID: The programs will see almost $200 billion
in cuts over the next five years, about three times the savings proposed
last year but rejected by Congress
HEALTH: Health and Human Services Department funding would be cut
by $2 billion, amounting to a 3 percent reduction
HOMELAND SECURITY: Overall, the budget for homeland security
programs will increase by almost 11 percent

What kind of man cuts America's critical services to fund
an illegitimate war. Kicking the elder out of nursing homes ???
Is he crazy ??? Taking away their meds ??? He is nuts !!!!

It makes no sense unless he is preparing for another war, or another surge.

I assume congress has yet to vote on this budget? I hope the money to the elderly and poor isn't cut, that's just appalling. I do not think even Hitler made such cuts to social programs.

I guess it's a start to cutting back government. Medicaire & Medicaid shouldn't exist in the first place. Of course, neither should this idiotic war. I'd rather he be cutting programs to pay off this ridiculous debt than just to put the money elsewhere.

Cut more. Much, much more.

I would add corporate welfare on the top of the list of things that shouldn't exist instead of programs that assist the elderly and less advantaged. But that's just me.
