"All Americans are being asked to sacrifice so that a few can get butter while the masses get guns."

The Congressional Budget Office predicted yesterday that the federal budget deficit will top $400 billion this year. The estimate is twice what the office projected in January. Economists said the soaring deficit is a result of President Bush’s tax cut and increased defense spending related to the war in Iraq.

Last weekend, former congress member of Georgia, Cynthia Mckinney, spoke at an event in Washington D.C. About the war abroad and the war at home.
