Bush Budget Hurts Us

Respected Washington think tank on how bad the President's budget will be on cities and states:

DEEP CUTS IN FEDERAL GRANTS IN FY 2006 BUDGET WILL SQUEEZE STATES AND LOCALITIES

The analysis reinforces "GOP Tax Shell Game" comments. The report also warns:
The Medicaid program is cut by a net of $45 billion over the next 10 years... If total Medicaid funding to states is reduced, states will have to choose between reducing health care for some their residents or increasing the number of uninsured children, parents, elderly and people with disabilities, or raising their own taxes to compensate for a reduction of that magnitude.  There also are deep cuts in child care subsidies over the next five years, which will frustrate the efforts of states to help families join and remain in the workforce.

And guess who gets hurt by greed and indifference:

Once the Tax Cuts are Paid for, Low- and Middle-Income Households Likely To Be Net Losers, on Average

Call Senator DeWine at (419) 259-7536 and email Senator Voinovich and ask them to SUPPORT TOLEDO and VOTE NO on the President's irresponsible budget.
