Doris Haddock on Budget & Economy


Don't let GOP "starve the beast"

That high number does not seem to bother the Bush Administration and the GOP. I believe they have a "starve the beast" plan to de-fund the federal government and thereby make it smaller-except for the military establishment. Small is good, but they are under-funding and endangering essential programs, including Medicare, Social Security, local schools, and local services. Meanwhile, real national security needs are unmet, and there is little hope of solving our national health care crisis.

Huge federal deficits undercut social & local needs

Huge federal deficits, fueled by an unnecessary war and more directly by irresponsible tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans, undercut our ability to provide for our state and local communities (who now must raise local taxes), and undercut our ability to provide for the social and medical services needed by our people now and in the future. Our schools, particularly, are suffering the brunt of the tax policies and war policies pushed by Bush and voted for by Mr. Gregg.
