The Disaster of Bush's Budget in Virginia

This post does lift liberally (heh) from an email I received, but the numbers were new to me. I take State and local issues very seriously, and I'm angered to see how these cuts are going to affect us.

Here are just a few of the cuts Virginia faces under Bush's 2006 budget:

Homeland Security

Health Care


Other Priorities

And Bush's irresponsible budget is a record $427 billion in the red, increasing each Virginia family's share of the federal debt by $38,910.

Take action today to help stop Bush's disastrous budget in its tracks. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper explaining why Bush's budget is such a disaster for America.
