Anger Over Budget

From Some Bush Supporters, Anger Over Budget (washingtonpost.com): "According to an analysis of Bush's budget proposals, red states won by Bush in 2004 would experience cuts in federal grants in 2006 equal to 2.33 percent of their budgets on average. But blue states won by the Democratic nominee, Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.), in 2004 would lose federal grant money equal to only 1.74 percent of their budgets on average. The averages were compiled using an analysis of Bush's budget proposal by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a liberal advocacy group, which looked at aid payments, other than Medicaid, to states. "
They think they are mad now, wait until it is necessary to reinstitute the draft. Then we will see the fur fly. Dharma is intact; Shrub is in for a rough ride.
