This Should Anger You

You should read this article about Bush's proposed budget from the Rolling Stone, by Matt Taibbi.

I really started to get angry about a quarter of the way through. Let's see how far you get!

This part got me, especially:

If the Estate Tax were to be repealed completely, the estimated savings to just one family, the Walton family, the heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune -- would be about $32.7 billion dollars over the next ten years.
The proposed reductions to Medicaid over the same time frame? $28 billion.
