No Child's Behind LeftIn spite of the highest budget deficit in history, President Bush just signed another tax-cut. This one might have some lucky timing issues what with his own re-election vote being in 29 days and all. I was an English major, so I'm not sure the math is right, but Bush is spending roughly $1000 a second on the war in Iraq, yet cuts our taxes by $131,400,000,000. George! That could have paid for over 361 more years of war! Apparently his re-election is worth a hell of a lot of money. Our kids will be paying for it for the rest of their lives.
