President Bush’s budget is due out on February 7. A few of his promised cuts to halve the deficit have been surfacing as trial balloons, including:
- Medicare benefits
- Housing and community programs
- Hubble Telescope Repair
But still no word on eliminating the ONDCP, the DEA, much of the Federal Prison (and prosecution) costs, the wasteful drug eradication program in Colombia, drug task forces, and much more of the ineffective and exhorbitantly expensive drug budget. We could save billions!
Come on, President Bush. You can do it. Give John Walters his pink slip.
