Support The Troops? Bush Budget Cuts Vet Benefits In 2009

This is part of Bush's strategy to balance the federal budget by 2012.
In order to justify the huge tax breaks he has given to the wealthiest Americans, which he wants to make permanent, he is planning to cut funding for veteran's health care.
