Reverse Robin Hood in the White House Budget....

On one side, the budget calls for program cuts that are small change compared with the budget deficit, yet will harm hundreds of thousands of the most vulnerable Americans.

The question is whether the relentless mean-spiritedness of this budget finally awakens the public to the true cost of Mr. Bush's tax policy.

The White House didn't return a call asking how someone using an alias was given daily clearance to enter the White House.
