WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush (news - web sites) will call for a near-freeze in the overall growth of government spending not connected to national defense to try to rein in record deficits, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.
Bush will make the proposal in Wednesday's State of the Union address, previewing the fiscal 2006 budget he will send to Congress next Monday.
Damn it, people! The government is out of money! We need to cut spending.
