Your Republican Party in Action

An analysis of the proposed 2008 budget from Bush reveals this little gem:

If the Estate Tax were to be repealed completely, the estimated savings to just one family -- the Walton family, the heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune -- would be about $32.7 billion dollars over the next ten years.

The proposed reductions to Medicaid over the same time frame? $28 billion.


If you vote, which is more important to you? Preserving the Walton family fortune? Or healthcare for America's poor and elderly? We know what the answer is for Republicans. But then, we already knew that.
