El monstruoso presupuesto de Bush

Resulta imposible poder enteder la cantidad de dinero que el gobierno federal de USA le roba a sus pobres súbditos. El presupuesto es de 2.770.000.000.000 dólares, una cifra ridícula. Es más, este presupuesto reduce el tamaño del gobierno central en un mísero 0,5%. Vemos, pues, la verdadera cara del conservadurismo moderno, integrado por los neocons partidarios de la guerra, la deuda, la inflación y el totalitarismo doméstico:

President Bush today proposed a $2.8 trillion budget for fiscal 2007 that would cut billions of dollars from domestic programs ranging from Medicare and food stamps to local law enforcement and disease control, while extending most of his tax cuts beyond their 2010 expiration date.

Under the plan, a budget deficit -- expected to reach $423 billion this year -- would fall to $183 billion by 2010, more than meeting his goal to cut the deficit in half by 2009. But it would rise again to $205 billion in 2011, reflecting the cost of the extensions in the president's tax cuts.

"We have set clear priorities that meet the most pressing needs of the American people while addressing the long-term challenges that lie ahead," Bush said in his budget message. "The 2007 Budget will ensure that future generations of Americans have the opportunity to live in a Nation that is more prosperous and more secure."
