President Bush is sending Congress a $2.5 trillion spending plan, constrained by war and record deficits, that seeks to slash spending in a number of popular programs from farm subsidies to poor people's health care.
It's the Republican M.O. They intentionally bankrupt the government, and then say, "Gee, we just don't have enough money for all those nasty social programs that we've always hated and have been trying to get rid of for decades. What a coincidence."
So they are trying to take from the poor, the sick and the old, and hand the money over to those who already have more than they could possibly use.
While pretending to be Christians.
