"These are just slush funds for conservative interest groups"
--The Compassion Capital Fund ($148 million of our money), and the Community-Based Abstinence Education grant program ($391.7 million of our money)--just 2 of many new programs. ...The distribution of new money to conservative organizations is a small part of an estimated flood of $2 billion a year in federal grants to religious and religiously affiliated organizations.
--except it's only to organizations who have policies that agree with Bush and the GOP agenda on social issues, and not about need.
