President Bush: "I encourage Congress to push the envelope when it comes to cutting spending."

How about with start with the extras Congress gets? the kickback's perhaps? Or how about their salaries? Betcha they aren't looking into their own wallets....

The bill also would tighten eligibility standards for foster care assistance in nine states and delay some lump-sum payments to very poor and elderly beneficiaries of Social Security's Supplemental Security Income program.

Nope. They aren't.

"They are targeting programs for poor people to pay for tax cuts for rich people," said Rep. David Obey, D-Wisconsin. Once those tax cuts are passed, Obey added, deficits will be increasing again.
Bigger deficits for Peanut's generation to start paying off. All because Shrub thinks them rich folks need less taxes and more money 'cause that whole Trickle Down Theory works so well.
