The Bush administration on Monday proposed cutting the Environmental Protection Agency budget by nearly 6 percent to $7.57 billion in fiscal 2006....

Most of the EPA cut proposed for 2006 is from a reduction in funding for a revolving fund that states use to upgrade sewage and septic systems, and storm-water run-off projects. Funding for the fund fell $361 million, or 33 percent, in the Bush administration budget proposal.

Environmental groups say cities need the loans and grants to replace and upgrade aging sewage systems, some of which are over a century old....


As a symbol of what Bush is doing to America, that's almost too perfect, isn't it?
