The rich get richer, the poor get....screwed again

Yesterday, in a surprise shift towards some sort of fiscal restraint, the House passed $40 billion dollars in cuts to the budget. That could almost qualify as good news, except:

package...would save nearly $40 billion over five years by imposing substantial changes on programs from Medicaid and welfare to child support and student lending.

Hmmm. Medicaid, welfare, child support, student lending....I wonder if these cuts are going to negatively impact the poor more than the wealthy?
