Tax Cuts, Program Cuts in Perspective

While America obsessed about Brittany's shaved head, Bush offered a budget that offers $32.7 billion in tax cuts to the Wal-Mart family alone, while cutting $28 billion from Medicaid.

An interesting way of looking at it. Alot of Bush's wealthy donors/friends are getting tax cuts that themselves are much greater than budget slashing that the decider proposes. So, should Medicaid be cut in order to give a tax break to the Walton family? Framed this way, the American people might respond differently when asked by pollsters.
