Budget Fun

From the New York Times
The House and Senate broke a lengthy impasse over federal spending Thursday night, narrowly adopting a $2.56 trillion federal budget for 2006 that aims to trim the growth of Medicaid by $10 billion over five years, add $106 billion in tax cuts and clear the way for oil drilling in an Alaskan wildlife refuge."

So we have to cut healthcare for needy people so we can have 10 times more in tax cuts for the not-so-needy people. Isn't that cute?
