Bush to Seek Cuts in Medicaid, Benefits

WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) is readying a new budget that would carve savings from Medicaid and other benefit programs, congressional aides and lobbyists say, but it is unclear if he will be able to push the plan through the Republican-run Congress.
White House officials are not saying what Bush's $2.5 trillion 2006 budget will propose saving from such programs, which comprise the biggest and fastest growing part.
This is a man who instigated two rounds of tax cuts to the tune of $2.2 to $3.2 Trillion. He is a man who has involved us in a massively costly war ($150 Billion at last count, this would go a long way towards helping children in America rather than Haliburton in Iraq.)
But mostly, it is the mark of a coward to go after children. If this is an expression of his much vaunted "values," I'd say he wouldn't know a value if it smacked him in the face.
Shame, shame, shame on you George W. Bush.
