What happens when the rich get tax cuts

Funding for the following items are slashed in Bush's budget, just so he can preserve his irresponsible tax cuts:

Grants to local law enforcement
SLASHED from $600 million to $60 million

Environmental protection
SLASHED by $450 million

Native American schools
SLASHED (or "Left Behind") by $100 million

Grants to local firefighters
SLASHED by $215 million

Funding for home-heating for the elderly
SLASHED by $200 million

The good news is that defense spending is getting a 4.8% hike. More ass-backwards Bush budget news here -- and the full budget hasn't even been released yet.
