ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to U.S. President George W. Bush administration's $2.9 trillion budget request to fund federal operations in 2008. The White House promises to balance the budget in five years, increasing research into alternative fuels, expand military ground forces and pay for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Administration officials believe they can substantially increase spending on defense by trimming Medicare and holding domestic spending below the inflation rate.
