GOP Budget Targets Widows and Orphans

From your Chicago Sun-Times:
President Bush's budget calls for elimination of a $255 lump-sum death payment that has been part of Social Security for more than 50 years and urges Congress to cut off monthly survivor benefits to 16- and 17-year-old high school dropouts.
"Budgets are moral documents that reflect the values and priorities of a family, church, organization, city, state, or nation" -- Jim Walis.

And this GOP budget that victimizes widows and orphans reflects the values and priorities of the Republican party.
