Bush wants to cut the deficit in half in five years (by the end of his next elected term, before his successor takes ofice). He wants to give money to schools to conduct random drug searches. He wants to use Social Security money for something other than Social Security.
Nancy Pelosi (aka, the scariest looking Congress critter ever) and Tom Daschle want America to be safe via 100% package inspection and anti-terror initiatives.
Why do politicians act like money grows on trees? How does spend more-tax less count as sane fiscal policy? I don't get it.
