Abstract:

President BushÂ’s budget proposal sends a simple and stark message: even in an economic downturn, those at the bottom of the income scale donÂ’t matter. It is now CongressÂ’ turn to prepare a budget plan. The Congressional budget resolution should inflict no harm to low-income workers, restore prior cuts, and invest in the future by supporting the workforce and ensuring safe and healthy children.
