Again, Bush's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Bush has it exactly backwards. Backwards is exactly where President George W. Bush is taking our nation. Here's Bloomberg with the details of Bush's health cuts to pay for his fiasco in Iraq and his tax cut for the very wealthy:
President George W. Bush proposed cutting $78 billion from U.S. health spending over five years, setting up a potential fight with congressional Democrats.

The $701 billion budget for the Department of Health and Human Services that Bush sent to Congress today includes $66 billion in cuts over five years from Medicare, which provides health insurance for 43 million Americans. Bush also would cut $12 billion from Medicaid for the poor and from a program that provides health insurance for low-income children.

``On health care, rather than trying to solve the crisis by lowering costs and covering more people, the president's plan will make the crisis worse by raising costs and failing to cover those who need it most -- our nation's children,'' said Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat who heads the Senate health committee, in a statement.

How do Republicans keep justifying this guy?

Well, we can't have the children of poor families becoming dependent on government, can we? Why, that would make them . . . dependent!

No sir, they can get their little butts out and work for their health care, just like all the well-heeled Republican movers and shakers have had to do. People like . . . George w. Bush and Dick Cheney? Er . . .

S.W., if nothing else, George W. Bush is going to be famous for a very long time, but not for reasons he was hoping for. He will be the text book case for failure on so many levels.
