Bush’s Billionaires

This article from Matt Taibbi uses comparisons from the Bush budget to illustrate how bizarrely warped our national priorities are. I mentioned the absurdity of Britney Spears media coverage in class today and several students found it very peculiar that they really do know more about her than they do about me. Taibbi makes the point wonderfully that tax cuts for the super rich are not part of any legitimate plan to provide benefits to society as a whole but only those super rich themselves. Really good stuff.
