let the bush legacy begin

What a nightmare :
“The White House would not wait for the new Congress to convene in January to begin its legislative drive, [White House spokesperson Ari Fleischer said], it would begin sending previously blocked measures back to the Senate this month. (…) The White House’s immediate to-do list is headed by the establishment of a new homeland security department, described yesterday by Mr Fleischer as a “vital priority”. It includes the effective privatisation of state pensions by investing social security funds in the stock market, the promotion of “faith-based” charity for the poor in place of government social welfare programmes, and the reintroduction of energy legislation incorporating plans to drill for oil in the Alaskan Arctic national wildlife refuge. ”
