The bucks start here: Bush's plan raises questions - Yahoo! News
I'm all for a generous amount of money being available for restoring the Gulf Coast. Recovery costs big bucks.
= Former President Clinton has called for a rolling back of those recent Bush tax cuts. Could be a good idea.
= A really good way to get some money is to get out of the war in Iraq.
= Likely some new taxes as well as some cuts in governmental spending. "Tax" is really not a swear word. Best avoided, but under the right circumstances, not such a bad thing! IMHO. Our wealthy are not taxed nearly enough, anyway.
= Let's please not increase our national budget deficit. It's already the largest it's ever been. I might argue that "deficit" is a swear word. We're on the way to maxing out Uncle Sam's credit cards.
= A really good way to get some money is to get out of the war in Iraq. Yes, I said that before, but it's well worth repeating.
Now, let's hope and pray that the impending Hurricane Rita doesn't add to the Gulf Coast disaster...
