Dooh Nibor

Krugman was in fine form yesterday. A recently obtained memo from the Office of Management and Budget hints that the Bush Admin, assuming a miraculous comeback and retention of the White House, is prepared to slash and pillage the Social Services budgets to make room for more tax cuts for the wealthy. Tax cuts they claim average $1448 per family. We know how averages work, and the simple math is, according to the research, is that 257,000 taxpayers receive a bigger combined cut, then the 85 million that make up the bottom 60 percent of the populace.

This Dooh Nibor, a way of robbing the poor to pay the rich, ala reverse Robin Hood is the Bush strategy to reel in his fiscal conservatives. Bush's fiscally irresponsible spending spree, without adequate funding, has got him in hot water with the more fiscally conservative old guard. Perhaps this is his way of shoring up the far right base, while deceiving the American people.

If we haven't learned anything at all during this administration, we have learned one thing. The will lie, cheat, steal, and deceive, to ensure they maintain control for their Billionare Boy's Club bretheren.
