When I said compassionate conservative I was joking...

I say good riddance. News reports are that the new budget will slash all sorts of useful and important government programs. Hurray!

CNN: WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush's budget will propose slashing grants to local law enforcement agencies and cutting spending for environmental protection, American Indian schools and home-heating aid for the poor, The Associated Press learned Saturday.
