Seems a little strange to me that although Bush doesn't seem able to come up with the roughly $10 billion required to fund his vaunted "No Child Left Behind" legislation, he can find $136 billion for what the Seattle Times calls "massive corporate tax cuts
". Did I mention that they just bust the federal debt cap?
Ah, pork barrel spending. It's a wonderful thing, really.
Full disclosure: I actually stand to benefit from this bill since it allows deduction of state sales taxes from federal income tax. It's still a big barrel of pork and a dumb idea.
