Compassion for whom?

As the Bushies frantically rush to appease their base and reduce the budget deficit, they've decided to cut spending instead of reducing tax cuts.

What does it mean for schools and the kids in them? According to the Washington Post today:

About 40,000 children would lose eligibility for free or reduced-price school lunches, the Congressional Budget Office estimated.

Let's see... kids eat or millionaires pay a little less tax? Tough choice, huh? Not if you're a compassionate conservative. Then, apparently, the choice is all too easy. The millionaires win every time.
