Bush Waves "So Long" To Those Pesky Widows

President Bush has figured out a way to reduce the deficit. He's proposed doing away with the $255 Social Security Burial Benefit.

His budget also calls for a lot of other cuts but Bush has said, "Most of the people who'll be affected don't contribute to political campaigns anyway so we won't miss their dollars."

Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel sums it up nicely.

"The Republican Congress has given a whole new meaning to the term
'women and children first.'"
