The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, February 3, 2004 - 7
Continued from Page 1
Just a week ago, Republicans and
Democrats alike felt duped by
revised projections for government
expenses under the new Medicare
bill, a bipartisan piece of legislation
passed into law on Dec. 8, 2003.
Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) told
the New York Times yesterday that
he was "shocked and appalled" by
the latest figures.
"We should reopen the bill and
examine what is driving the cost
estimate," Graham said.
Conservative unease intensified
by the budget's upward re-estimate
- by one-third - of the 10-year
cost of the newly enacted Medicare
overhaul to $534 billion.
"This budget is a step in the right
direction and I am hopeful that
working with other members of
Congress we can do even more,"
said Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas.)
Overall, Bush's budget would boost
spending by 3.5 percent. Revenue
would grow by 13.2 percent to $2.04
trillion - underscoring the adminis-
tration's reliance on economic growth
to make the red ink subside.
Still, Congress is growing more
vocal in decrying what they call the
president's lack of fiscal discipline.
"Today the President released a
budget that deepens the deficits that
his policies have helped to create,"
said Rep. John Spratt (D-S.C.) of
the House Budget Committee.

asked for," said Shuttari, who chairs
the Political Committee of the Mus-
lim Student Association.
Shuttari was among the many
Arabs and Muslims in the United
States who endorsed Bush as a presi-
dential candidate in the 2000 elec-
tion. LSA senior Salah Husseini said
he believes many Muslims decided
to support Bush based on his pre-
"During the (presidential) debate he
was all about getting rid of secret evi-
dence," said Husseini, president of the
Arab American Anti-Discrimination
Committee. Bush also promised to get
rid of unfair airport security targeting
Arabs, he added.
"I don't think he had the intention
of doing any of that. ... It fooled a
lot of people."
But Steve MacGuidwin, the president
of College Republicans, said he feels
these security measures are important in
keeping terrorism out of the U.S.
"It is important that we sacrifice
the smallest of civil rights for the
larger security (of Americans),"
He added that the courts have jus-
tified the security measures set out
by the Patriot Act by ruling in the
government's favor in cases regard-
ing detainees in Guantanamo Bay.
Don Herzog, a professor in the
Law School who specializes in the
First Amendment, spoke to students
last Wednesday in Hutchins Hall
about the Patriot Act.
"What actually happens on the
ground is very clear, which is that
you're much more likely to trigger
the state's interests simply by virtue
of being Arab American," he said.
He added that this was not the inten-
tion of the act as originally written.
Mike Phillips, vice president of
College Republicans, also empha-
sized that the Patriot act was not
written to target Arabs and Muslims,
and he finds no reason for their dis-
continued support of Bush due to the
"Some of the claims that have
been made about Arabs and Muslims
are not as extreme as the media has
made it out to be," Phillips said.
The text of the act in one of its
earlier sections ascertains, "The civil
rights and civil liberties of all Amer-
icans, including Arab Americans,
Muslim Americans and Americans
from South Asia, must be protected,
and ... every effort must be taken to
preserve their safety."
Husseini agrees that the act was not
specifically set out as a discriminato-
ry policy but he said it has nonethe-
less, perhaps unintentionally, led to
the targeting of Muslims and Arabs.
He said the case of Rabih Haddad as
hit particularly close to home for him,
referring to the co-founder of the
Islamic Relief charity from Ann Arbor
who was deported last year for
alleged ties to terrorist groups.
Both Husseini and Shuttari said
the Muslim community would not be
supporting Bush in November.
"I think most of the Arab and
Muslim groups realize it was a huge
mistake," said Husseini.
They both said that they had not
yet chosen a definite candidate to
support in this year's election. How-
ever, Husseini said the Muslim com-
munity is debating between
endorsing retired Gen.Wesley Clark
or former Vermont Gov. Howard
Dean, both of whom do not fully
support the Patriot act.
"Conservative candidates are no
benefit to Arabs or Muslims," Hus-
seini said. "I think they learned their
lesson with Bush."

we need to give every American the
right to health care, the right to educa-
tion, the right to vote. We don't have
those constitutional rights," Sharpton
said in an Iowa debate last May.
On the economic front, Sharpton has
said he wants to rescind President
Bush's tax cuts for high-income Ameri-
cans and lower taxes for the working
class. To create jobs, he proposed a five-
year, $250 billion public works project
that would fix highways, bridges and
Sharpton, like some other candidates,
opposes the war on Iraq. He has drawn
parallels between Iraq and Vietnam and
said the United Nations should assume
control of Iraq.
Sharpton finished in second place in
the nonbinding District of Columbia pri-
mary. The district will hold caucuses
later this year that will determine the
allocation of delegates to the Democrat-
ic National Convention. Sharpton's com-
petition included former Vermont Gov.
Howard Dean, former Illinois Sen. Carol
Mosley-Braun and Dennis Kucinich of
Ohio. The advisory primary had a 16
percent turnout. Sharpton's strong show-
ing in D.C. was attributed to his call for
D.C. statehood and the district's black
Delaware, Oklahoma, Arizona and
Missouri are also holding primaries
today while North Dakota and New
Mexico are holding caucuses. Democra-
tic hopefuls are competing in the South,
Midwest, Southwest and East Coast in
this vital test of cross-regional appeal.
"If you sum up the impact of South
Carolina and the other states that are
holding primaries tomorrow, you
should get a pretty reliable snapshot of
some of the concerns that people
have;' James said.
In the Zogby poll, Sen. John Kerry of
Massachusetts showed a commanding
lead in Arizona and in Missouri, which
has more delegates than any other state
holding a primary today. Missouri
became a hotly contested state when
Rep. Dick Gephardt of Missouri exited
the presidential race after the Iowa cau-
cuses. Kerry and retired Gen. Wesley
Clark are in a dead heat in Oklahoma.
Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina
retains a slim lead in South Carolina.
Former frontrunner Howard Dean
came in third or fourth in the poll in all
four states. The former Vermont gover-
nor still leads the pack with 113 dele-
gates, despite disappointing finishes in
Iowa and New Hampshire. But many of
his endorsements come from superdele-
gates - Democratic Party luminaries
who vote on their own behalf in the
national convention. Dean's lead may
rapidly vanish; 269 delegates are up for
grabs in the contests being held today.
The former Vermont governor is con-
centrating his efforts in states with later
primary or caucus dates.
Joe Lieberman tried, but did not suc-
ceed with this strategy, when he skipped
Iowa to devote more of his time to New
Hampshire, where he finished in fifth
place. The Connecticut senator won
endorsements from the South Carolina
newspaper the State and the Arizona
Republic, the largest newspapers in their
respective states. But the endorsement of
New Hampshire's largest paper, the
Manchester Union Leader, failed to save
Lieberman's electoral fortunes.
Sharpton trailed behind the pack in
most of the states in the Zogby poll. The
Reverend is no stranger to electoral
defeat. He made two unsuccessful bids
for the U.S. Senate in 1992 and 1994.
He also lost in the 1997 New York City
mayoral race. Responding to the
prospects of defeat, Sharpton said, "Well
eight of us are going to lose. I don't
intend to be one of the losers, but if I
am, it ain't like I'll be alone."

"It was just the fact that he can-
celled it without ever really giving us
any feedback. The fact that so many
people had to do what they did and it
still got cancelled," said Emerson
He added that this was especially
frustrating because the BBSA was
told on too short a notice to put
another event together.
Emerson and Futch, along with
Timothy Tillman, also a second year
MBA student, wrote a letter to the
Monroe Street Journal, the Business
School's weekly newsletter.
In the letter, they explained the cir-
cumstances and added that they did
not understand how "Dean Dolan
could be this aloof and arrogant to
suggest this solution days before the
They went on to cite these types of
instances as a reason for what they
call the University's declining public
The Journal printed the letter on
Jan. 26th, along with a response
from Dolan in which he admitted
that the process of the cancellation
"I now realize that I should have
set up a process whereby the BBSA
and I ... worked together," Dolan
stated in the response. "I have
extended my sincere apologies to the
BBSA for not working more broadly
from the start."
Along with his apologies, Dolan
allowed Business School students to
have a forum on diversity to discuss
a range of topics, from race to
To avoid such conflicts from
recurring, the BBSA has chosen a
representative to work jointly with
the dean for next year's event.
