I got that email last summer, so I assume it was talking about Bush.
I'm excited about the money in the package going towards education. It seems that this is the first place to get cut whenever they balance budgets, although I think it should definitely be one of the last things cut. I hope that they will at least make sure that the schools have enough books, so the kids can take them home. At my brother's school, he has to leave at least one of his books there because they don't have enough to go around. I told my mother she should get the ISBN number and buy the book, but she wasn't receptive to the idea.
More current events in my area. I don't know if I told you all, but job is cutting everyone's pay by 10%. For all employees outside of staff ours in is the form on 5 weeks of unpaid leave. Now there is a rumor going around that they may add another week some where in the year. I'm trying not to stress, but this is really irking me. DH graduates in 1 year, so I'm hoping we can ride this thing out until 1st Qtr 2010, then he will have a job, and it won't be as stressful. Luckily the way my employer has work it out so that we will get unemployment benefits. I'll be glad when this starts to turn around.
