We will see what shakes out

Bush Budget Aims to Cut Many Domestic Programs

Ah, yes. In his last four years, he wants to keep the faithful happy- keep all those promises he must have made to be reelected- and cut as many programs as he can to shape up government spending and the budget- that HE screwed up.

So he will pick on the poor, the elderly, the less organized - all the usual targets of Republican budget cutting. It is a little late to be finally thinking fiscal restraint, but this way when the Dems balk at cutting so many social programs and non-defense budgets, the Repubs can make their usual outcries during the next congressional campaigns; "See all those irresponsible Dems trying to spend all that money we don't have". It would wise for the Dems to have a strong counter prepared ahead. It is easy enough for anyone to see what is coming.
