Bush’s budget

/ 19 February 2005

I was just invited to view another Progressive Christian blog (thanks Bob!), and found a great, concise post linking off to a number of MSM commentaries on the President’s budget. You know it’s got to be obvious when even the Washington Post calls it “breathtaking,” the NYTimes calls it “a class war budget,” and the LATimes names it “a war on the poor.” I wish our national religious organizations could be as prescient as our local ones. Yesterday a distinguished group of religious leaders (Christian, Jewish, Muslim) talked about how a state budget document asserts moral claims, and how in Minnesota we ought to be raising the income tax, not cutting services to vulnerable people.
