Bush Budget Is a Loser

I guess President Bush and DC Republicans have given up trying to balance the budget. Bush and the GOP Congress have increased spending by 33% in the last five years. Put simply, the GOP is not the party of smaller government anymore. At a time when our reps need to take a meat axe to cut spending, they instead keep stoking the fires, growing the budget year after year. Big government is alive and well. In fact, it is thriving at the hands of the Republicans. Bush's new 2006 budget is a $2.77 trillion monstrosity with a deficit of over $400 billion dollars. This doesn't even account for all the supplemental war spending that will go on also. The OC Register has an editorial this morning basically saying the same thing. Click here to read it.
