  • Bush funds war by slashing healthcare

    Priorities, priorities.

    George Bush plans to ramp up funding for the military and police while slashing healthcare and welfare, according to budget plans for 2008 announced on Monday of this week.

    Far from pulling back from the disastrous “war on terror”, the US president wants to fund a permanent war drive across the globe.

    Bush has requested $481 billion for the US Department of Defence next year – a 62 percent rise since he took office in 2001.

    The US State Department – which implements foreign policy – will receive a 22 percent rise in funding to $35 billion next year.

    Overall Bush wants to spend $145 billion on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2008, on top of $555 billion spent already.

    But funding for healthcare, education and housing will either be cut back or squeezed.

    Bush wants to cut $101 billion in health insurance for the poor and elderly over the next five years.

    Education spending is also being targeted. The education budget for next year will be $59 billion, down from $68 billion this year and $93 billion in 2005.

    The budget for the Envi*ronmental Protection Agency will also be cut.

    However, one area of spending is spared the axe – security and policing.

    The Department for Homeland Security’s budget will rise to $34 billion from $32 billion this year, with plans for huge spending increases on “border security and immigration enforcement”.

    All this comes as Bush is freezing or cutting taxes for the rich.
    But if you listen then you know that shit's out of tune

        The govt spends MORE on healthcare in 2007 than at any other time in history, AND we have the first ever Drug Prescription plan for seniors and at-risk children.

          Thank you. The Government spends around $700 Billion a year on health care.

          The total cost of the Iraq War has been $380 Billion since it started in March, 2003.
