George W. Bush says he plans to pay for his ill-designed smorgasbord of Katrina relief problems by cutting “unnecessary spending”.
Presumably, at some point an intrepid reporter will ask him which $200 billion he plans to cut. But that will leave another question:
Mr. Bush has been President for four and a half years now, and his party has had complete control of Congress for two and a half of them. So why have he, and they, left $200 billion in cuttable waste in the budget?
