    In President Bush's new $2.4 trillion dollar budget proposal, he plans to cut the current $521 billion dollar deficit in half within 5 years. Bringing into account that even if he succeeds, a $237 billion dollar deficit will still be larger than most in a generation. The plan primarily calls for an end to all new spending on domestic programs, it also calls for lawmakers to cut existing programs.

    Who will be allowed to continue to freely drink from the American tax payers trough, are the newly formed and existing national security organizations and their contractors. With the acceptance of this new budget proposal and the controversial privacy issues that continue to be debated across the nation, will the American people be admitting that the cost of safety is their personal freedoms and fiscal responsibility?
