, so kindly reprinted for us by the Cato Institute, has some tough words for the Bush administration and it's budgeting policies. Best line:
In prior years, Congress has ignored most of the limited cuts proposed by the administration because of a conflicted message from the White House -- namely, We want spending restraint, except in the many areas where we want increases
Another interesting tidbit is that "Overall spending is projected to rise 3.6% [excludes Iraq -ed] in 2006, but that follows an enormous 33% increase over the past four years"
It's an worth a read.
