|David, the budget argument has been going on for years, as I'm sure you're aware. It's about establishing priorities. The kicker is that my priorities may not match yours, so we sit down and seek a compromise. The current reality though is that this president needs to find ways to pay for the faux paux that he got this country into. So, his people look at cutting what they think is the "fat" out of the budget. What's easier to cut--"guns or butter?" If we study what Lyndon Johnson did in 1964, I think we can see a parallel.
