If stealing from the rich to feed the poor is being a Robin Hood, what's it called when you steal from the military to give to the rich?
Don't bother speculating -- we know. It's called Bush and Republicans in Congress. As money must be freed up for Katrina rebuilding and they won't hear of cutting the tax cut for the wealthiest 1% (note: that's probably not you and yours...), it'll have to come from other areas. As David Sirota notices, it's not just the usual suspects...
"The Navy Times today reports that those cuts 'include trimming military quality-of-life programs, including health care.' This, while troops are in battle."
And the final irony is that because the CEO president neither wanted to spend the money up front on prevention (Army Corps of Engineers...) nor did he have the foresight to maintain a strong response service (FEMA) we're doomed to greater taxes and fewer services... (Sirotablog)
