Kerry Proposals Will Increase Spending $226 Billion in First Year

Any independent or conservative who is upset about the fact that President Bush has increased spending during his first term should take a close look at this article. Over $115 million will be spent on various social welfare programs. John Kerry is the definition of a tax and spend liberal, a charge he freely admits to. He has stated that he will pay for all of his spending by raising taxes on the wealthy, a term he defines as any family, and many small businesses that make over $200,000 per year.

The study by the National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF), which will be released later this week, finds that Mr. Kerry's budget proposals, which he says would slash the deficit in half over four years, would increase spending well beyond his estimates.

"Despite Kerry's attempts to outflank Bush on the deficit issue and portray himself as the more fiscally responsible candidate, the data behind Kerry's rhetoric tell a different story," said Drew Johnson, the study's author.
