A Couple of Things

The Flu Levee

Remember that $250 million Republicans cut from the Army Corps of Engineers request to shore up New Orleans levees? Well last night's supposed attempt to restrain federal spending cut $8 billion from the effort to prevent a flu pandemic from wiping through the U.S.

Wait Till Next Year

There ought to be a law against an elected official setting a target date for a policy at a year after he or she will be out of office.

President Bush's press office issued a statement from Pusan, South Korea, where the president was meeting with leaders of Southeast Asia, praising the action on the budget cuts.

"I applaud the Republican Members of the House who passed a significant savings package that will restrain spending and keep us on track to cut the deficit in half by 2009."
