While 1 percent of the wealthiest in the United States dance to the bank, President Bush is planning on cutting the budget to reduce food stamps, housing, education assistance and Medicaid for the poor. Yet, he plans to increase tax breaks for the rich.
These cuts are being proposed to offset the cost of the war in Iraq and to rebuild New Orleans. It would seem that the categories he is planning on cutting are the very ones that the displaced residents would need to aid their families while they try to get back on their feet.
Talk to me....I need to understand why the smallest and the weakest is the first target.
Please help me to understand why the poor is always the one to suffer, while the rich get richer and they are only 1 percent of the population. Why do we just sit back and watch it happen?
