According to a recent article from MoveOn.org, the Republican budget would:

1. Destroy 700,000 jobs, according to an independent economic analysis.

2. Zero out federal funding for National Public Radio and public television.

3. Cut $1.3 billion from community health centers--which will deprive more
than three million low-income people of health care over the next few
months.

 

4. Cut nearly a billion dollars in food and health care assistance to
pregnant women, new moms, and children.

5. Kick more than 200,000 children out of pre-school by cutting funds for
Head Start.

6. Force states to fire 65,000 teachers and aides, dramatically increasing
class sizes, thanks to education cuts.

7. Cut some or all financial aid for 9.4 million low- and middle-income
college students.

8. Slash $1.6 billion from the National Institutes of Health, a cut that
experts say would "send shockwaves" through cancer research, likely result
in cuts to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's research, and cause job losses.

9. End the only federal family planning program, including cutting all
federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood to support cancer screenings
and other women's health care.

10. Send 10,000 low-income veterans into homelessness by cutting in half the
number of veterans who get housing vouchers this year.

As President Obama said, "We won!" If you do not like it, you can try to change it in 2 years....

"'CORRUPPETS' ... are driven by and only believe in the 3 P's (POSITION, POWER, AND PROFIT) without regard to humanity, honesty, fairness, and/or civil rights; Their higher power is MONEY; They are guided by the BOTTOM LINE and are pro-business regardless if human and/or environmental costs are too high; They have no true allegiances to any nation, neighborhood, or state; Their allegiance and citizenship is to the WORLD ECONOMY; These Corporate Puppets are capable of doing things most of us cannot even imagine."
