This is quite a good writen article about where priorities lay when it comes to domestic issues and those who simply want to faten their wallets and brush off the issues which matter to most Americans; Once again, the President asked Congress for billions of dollars in war funding for a tragic war in Iraq, while vetoing important domestic priorities like Labor-HHS appropriations and health care for 10 million of our nation's children! This is yet another example of President Bush's insensitive priorities: tax cuts for the rich and billions spent on his oil war, while right here in The United States, he denies health coverage to millions of poor children! It is no wonder that his approval ratings have dipped below 30 percent! For the cost of less than 40 days in Iraq, we could have provided health care coverage to 10 million children for an entire year! It is simply mind blowing that while the President continues to spend over $10 billion per month in Iraq, and over $600 billion on the war from its outset - the administration refuses to pay less than $3.50 a day to cover a child through CHIP!

  1. I don't like to rush time, but I'll be glad when this guy is walking out of the White House for good.

    It's amazing to me that the simple math you layed out in your blog doesn't resonate with people. I think it's because war is romantic, heroic, while health care, education and the environment are not.

    LOL,,it is simple when you look at it Steve, I mean we can't go the way of the old Soviet Union,,put everything into military until we collapse around ourselves.

    We must put money into education and health-care also if we are to grow up leaders of the future generations of America and you are right the environment must be thought of also and all it takes is talking to get the ball rolling. These past years America has become alinated from the world at large.

    Hey let's talk nice to see you, my thoughts exactly,,and it reminds me about the poll I posted Nixon had a higher rating during Watergate,,boy,,right now I long for the days of Nixon.
