Bush threatens veto on budget; wants dems to cut $22 billion

As the Oct 1 deadline approaches for the federal budget, President Bush is threatening to Veto the proposed budget if the democrat controlled congress can’t cut more than $22 million out of it.

It will be O.K. folks. You will still get your government checks if they miss the Oct 1. deadline thanks to stopgap legislation, which allows the government to operate at current spending levels.

The President has proposed a budget of $933 billion and the democrats want to add $22 billion more.

Democrats are arguing that it is only a 2.4% of the domestic spending and less than 1% of the total budget. It is just a “small difference.”

Well, if it is such a “small difference” why we so worried about it. I mean, what $22 billion will buy you anyways. It is such a “small difference.”

Of course, let us not forget that Republicans acted the same way when they controlled the budget process. That is why Democrats are in control now. Some things never change I guess….Bush says Democrats are trying to sneak special projects into the budget because they are unwilling to debate the “projects” openly. Now why would they want to do that? Maybe because they know that is the only way there “projects” can become a reality.
