notes on government, sports and popular culture
Molly Ivins thinks
President Bush is a doody-head.
About the president's budget, Ivins writes:
"The cuts take from schools in need, child-care assistance, environmental programs (a whopping 10.4 percent cut there) students (he lied about Pell Grants) veterans, Medicaid, food stamps — basically the weakest and poorest Americans....
"Hubert Humphey said, 'The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life — the sick, the needy, the handicapped.' Bush seems to think they're all targets."
That's not very nice of him.
