On the same day that President Bush signed his $350 billion dollar tax cut into law, the Financial Times published a front-page story about a study commissioned by the Treasury which predicts a future of budget deficits that will total $44,000 billion dollars.

Unlike many of his Democratic colleagues, Senator Robert C. Byrd actually speaks out against the misguided policies of the Bush administration.
