Does Your Budget Love You?

The Washington Times has an odd piece by Donna Brazile that deserves little attention beyond its title: "Where's love in the budget?" (The real question is, why did the Times print it?)

It's the usual compendium of false claims of cuts (the increase wasn't big enough!) and complaints that the federal budget doesn't overreach enough to bring joy and happiness to every born person in America.

But something should be done about the love issue. If you're worried that the budget doesn't love you (because that is what federal budgets are for), a new campaign is needed: puppies for everyone. The federal government will supply everyone with a puppy and pay for all of its care. Then, and only then, will the budget finally love us.
