Highlights of Bush's $2.5 trillion budget

   By PoliticalGeek at 2:45 PM

      Bush introduced his $2.5 trillion dollar budget in which The Pentagon would get five percent more at $419.3 billion. The Department of Education's budget is a mere $63.4 billion. Under this proposed budget there will be $355.9 more Billion spent on defense than education.
      What is wrong with that picture? We have kids that can not even read at proper levels when they graduate from high school. There are companies that are forced to hire outside the country because the graduates from the United States schools are not proficient enough in math and science. Teachers are forced to buy supplies for their classrooms from their own small paychecks. The Government needs to take a look at their priorities and focus on the future of this country which starts with education.

Please Janeane, use the term Election Fraud rather than vote or voter fraud. Either of those last two imply that the voter did something wrong but Election fraud implies that there was something wrong with the election and/or how it was conducted.

Thanks for all the good work you do.
