Suffer for the rich

George Bush wants to cut the taxes of the family who own Walmart by 32.7 Billion Dollars. The owners of Mars candy corporation, which recently ran an anti-gay advertising campaign, are in line for an 11.7 Billion Dollar tax break from Bush as well.

How does he plan to make up for this, you may ask? Well, for a start, he plans to cut the budget of Medicaid by 28 Billion Dollars. Other programs he plans to cut or eliminate include education, grants for community service, heating assistance for the poor, and public television.

So, when you're old and sick and can't afford health care, take comfort in the knowledge that your suffering helped buy 5 or 10 members of the Walton family bigger mansions, yachts, and personal jets, and helped keep gay people the most hated minority in America.
