And this one I'll just have to lift verbatim from www.thismodernworld.com - Bob Harris, otherwise known as Robin to Tom Tomorrow's Batman, said it better than I can. Access to these articles online requires free registration.

Page A22, today's Los Angeles Times:
President Bush's insistence on a controversial proposal to eliminate taxes on dividends is threatening to squeeze out other, more popular elements of his tax cut plan that would help people in lower income brackets.
Page A27, today's Los Angeles Times:
16% of Children Live In Extreme Poverty, Report Says
The number of African American youths living in extreme poverty is at its highest level in the 23 years such statistics have been kept... changes in public assistance programs that once provided a "safety net" for these families have led to the increase in extreme poverty..."
The story is accompanied by a bar-chart (not included in online article - Deb), provided by the Children's Defense Fund, which, if you have eyes, plainly shows that child poverty rose throughout the Reagan/Bush I years, fell during the Clinton years, and has soared vertically under Bush II.
Today, our glorious leader is flying around -- like violence and bullets (see below) -- an aircraft carrier, thousands of miles away.
"Leave no child behind" -- a phrase Bush stole from the Children's Defense Fund, by the way -- indeed.

Amazing.

Here's what the CDF has to say about Bush's budget proposal.
