Screw the cities

Check out this New York Times article on the Bush plan to cut back federal housing subsidies for poor inner-city neighborhoods. I see this as part of a calculated plan by the Republicans to punish states and groups that are not Republican. Not surprisingly, under the new proposal, inner-city residents, i.e. black and Latino Democrats, lose money while rural residents of places like Kentucky and Georgia, i.e white Republicans, gain money.
