College Republicans spokesman
State Dems raise concern over budget plan
Some says Bush's plan will
hurt college students who may be
eligible for Pell Grants
WASHINGTON (AP) - Michigan Demo-
crats in Congress said last week they were
concerned that President Bush's budget pro-
posal would hurt manufacturers, college stu-
dents and veterans.
The budget proposal came during a limited
week of activity on Capitol Hill. There were
no major votes on the floor.
Several Democrats said they were worried
the $2.77 trillion budget plan would significantly
pare back a manufacturing extension program
that helps small and medium-sized businesses
learn how to compete globally.
They also protested the elimination of the
advanced training program, a grant program that
helps businesses develop new technologies.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) said the plan
would take the nation in the wrong direction. "We
need a budget that will help us create jobs and
boost domestic manufacturing in Michigan and
across America," she said.
Others complained the plan would freeze Pell
grants for college students, offering hardships to
those dealing with rising tuition rates. They also
cited planned increases in enrollment fees in the
Veterans Administration, which could affect
thousands of veterans in Michigan.
Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) decried "more cuts
to programs Americans care about, like health care,
Head Start, and clean water.
More record deficits, coming in part from more
tax breaks for the very wealthy."
Many Republicans said the budget proposal was
the first step in a long process and credited the Bush
administration's attempts to curb the federal deficit
and make permanent tax cuts.
Rep. Dave Camp (R-Midland) said the plan
"contains several measures to make our country,
and especially Michigan manufacturers, more com-
petitive in the global economy."
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) meanwhile, wrote
Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Mark
Everson to reconsider its decision to withhold tax
data from the Transactional Records Access Clear-
inghouse at Syracuse University.
The data has been used to show which kinds
of taxpayers get the most and toughest audits.
"Transparency of tax assessment, audit, and
enforcement information is vital to preserv-
ing taxpayer confidence in the IRS," Levin
