proposed new U.S. budget eliminates or sharply cuts back on most
entitlement programs, and on education, health care and the home
heating assistance. How are the poor to survive these harsh winters?
Fifty-one percent of the budget, or $1,228,000,000,000 (one trillion
two hundred twenty eight billion) is going to the military.... This
budget and its consequences are not someone's bad idea. It is the
inevitable outcome of the corporate takeover of the government. Unless
fundamental changes are made in the economic system this is just the
beginning of the American version of Hitler's declaration to the German
people : You will get guns, not butter.
