Eleven Points About The Budget

Check out The Budget, Doc from The Atlantic. Just a couple of points.

Are these not economic stimuli not included in the stimulus plan?
4. Lots more money for energy, including billions to modernize the electric grid

8. There's $5 billion for high-speed rail and $800 million for the next generation of air traffic control.

A couple of surprises about NASA and more foreign aid but considering how much trouble we have had salmonella and lead toys, is there a problem with these points?
5. Six billion more dollars for cancer research; 1 billion dollars to improve the FDA's safety and inspection regimes.

9. It increases the EPA budget by 34% over FY 2009 levels.
