Lawmakers react to budget

When I saw this headline:

I thought… “Finally, somebody’s got their act together and they’re not going to put up with the administration increasing the federal drug budget by $268 million at a time when we should be slashing it dramatically.”
But no.

…but lawmakers from both parties criticized its proposed budget that would cut several anti-drug programs.

Give me a break. And they’re talking about programs that even the big-drug-war-spending Bush adminstration says don’t work.
The idiots in this particular story:

  • Mark Souder, (R-Indiana)
  • Elijah Cummings, (D-Maryland)

If they’re your rep, let them know how you feel.
Of course, Drug Czar Walters tried to make them feel better by saying that the administration was increasing funding in many areas, including a 15 percent boost in funds for drugs testing in schools.
