Scathing rhetoric from the Washington Post

Remember the Poor

"depressing numbers"
"budgetary times that try the nation's soul"
"In the face of this unhappy fiscal reality, the risk is that the budget
ax will fall most heavily on the poorest and most vulnerable"
"reckless tax cuts"
"we think the president's pledge to cut the deficit in half in five
years is a sham -- an inadequate target achieved by misleading
"cruelly disproportionate share of the cuts"

Hmm, that didn't take long at all.
