Standard and Poor

February 2006
New Republic;2/20/2006, Vol. 234 Issue 6, p7
In this article the editors consider the 2007 federal budget announced by President George W. Bush. They reflect that budgets proposed by Bush frequently call for cuts in domestic spending but the only ones actually implemented are ones that are unimportant or which have an adverse affect on the poor and to the benefit of the rich in tax cuts. The editors state that this trend is as much a moral issue as an economic one.
