SPENDING CUTTING SPREE: A 7% cut in environmental spending, housing vouchers cut by $1.6 billion, a $316 million cut in job training programs (although the $250 million to community colleges promised in the State of the Union stays) and ending benefits for workers affected by NAFTA-policies. But what about that 10% increase for homeland security? The first responders—police and firefighters—are cut by 32% and 33% respectively. The worst part? It won’t even put a dent in the deficit.

No wonder Bush is running on 9/11. Domestically, the only constituency he has are the rich.
