Preliminary Analysis of the President's Budget

The Bush administration asked Congress February 5 for a $2.9 trillion budget for fiscal year 2008 (FY08) that includes nearly a trillion dollars for the military and short changes successful programs to help low income people put food on their table, keep warm in the winter, and see a doctor when they are sick. The budget proposals presented to Congress are the first stage of a multi-part process that should eventually result in Congress passing legislation to set the parameters for federal government spending in the fiscal year that stretches from October 1, 2007 to September 31, 2008.

Take Action on Iraq

The Senate is expected to vote next week on a non-binding resolution rejecting the escalation of the war in Iraq. Write your senators today. Urge them to support the Biden resolution (S. Con. Res. 2) that rejects the escalation of the war as an important first step. But Congress should also articulate a political strategy that includes support for peace talks among Iraqis, support for a regional peace process that includes Iran and Syria, and a timeline for the withdrawal of U.S. troops while also limiting the president¹s power to wage war against Iran and Syria
