Nate Campbell GOVT101.01 When I look at the President’s Budget for the 2007 fiscal year I see two major driving factors. Although Social Security is the largest chunk of money, the President wants to continue his worldwide push against terrorism, along with homeland security. Second, he is striving for a strong economy. The latter is most likely needed to support the war. The President also deemed it important to support Medicare as one of the top contributions. As far as defense budget goes, I cannot disagree. The US is a fragile place if we were ever to be seriously attacked. President Bush sees the danger in an attack that could cripple the economy. Therefore, he chose to also spend a lot of money on the economy. A lot of people in this country criticize Bush for spending so much on this war. I don’t have a problem with this criticism as long as those people are not the same people who drove around with flags all over their car after 9-11 supporting the war.
