And Now For Something Completely Indifferent - House Republicans chop several programs - Oct 30, 2005:
"WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Republicans voted to cut student loan subsidies, child support enforcement and aid to firms hurt by unfair trade practices as various committees scrambled to piece together $50 billion in budget cuts.

More politically difficult votes -- to cut Medicaid, food stamps and farm subsidies -- were on tap Thursday as more panels weigh in on the bill.


'I encourage Congress to push the envelope when it comes to cutting spending,' Bush said."

Yeah, because those tax cuts for the rich are just too good to let go. Pigs!
