From Sojourners, the Christian organization that created the "God Is Not a Republican. Or Democrat." campaign....
"Yesterday, President Bush released his administration's proposed 2006 federal budget. The $2.6 trillion budget projects a record $427 billion budget deficit, not including funding for Iraq and Afghanistan. It includes increases in military spending while at the same time proposes major cuts to domestic programs that benefit people living in poverty.
Budgets are moral documents. This administration's proposed budget reflects a set of priorities that stand in clear opposition to biblical values. Paying attention to the poorest among us is arguably the most central biblical imperative-not increased spending on nuclear warheads and tax cuts for the rich. "
A hearty amen to that.
Tomorrow, I will publish here my concise, objective analysis, by the numbers, of the proposed Bush 2006 budget....so you can comprehend it with ease and clarity.
