    Oh the congress will add plenty of pork to this before it gets through. My other cynical view is, he's trying to innoculate himself in an election year from those who would use the mounting deficit as a weapon against him and as a way to help mollify his base. Real conservatives are plenty angry with his budget busting spending policies and refusal to veto anything when congress loads on the pork. Congressional members are worried about having to support in when they go home to their districts. If Bush is re-elected, look for spending to rise and taxes to go down again.
