ABSTRACT
Presents news briefs related to the U.S. President George W. Bush administration. Bush has had no greater critic than Democratic Ted Kennedy. Among Kennedy's growing list of grudges against the president, he rails that Bush is shortchanging the sweeping education reform law he promoted and signed in 2001. Bush spent a lot of time on the campaign trail boasting about the managed care reforms he had passed in Texas--and promising to enact them on a federal level once he got into office. The president has decided to rescind a regulation that guaranteed Medicaid patients access to emergency care in yet another example of the Bush administration's ongoing effort to drain every ounce of compassion from the U.S. health care system. The administration continues to clamor for a $600 billion tax cut for investors and other upper-income taxpayers. Public opinion polls on the administration's use of force with regards to Iraq.
