Yes. The President does some wonderful things, adds a dose of common sense, and Rolling Stone calls it "radical" -- as if that is a bad thing. The only thing radical about President Bush's budget it that it is so rare these days for the government to consider practicality and results when it comes to federal programs.
Sunset commissions are somewhat common in government and should be encouraged. Results are very important when you take money from citizens and filter it through the federal bureaucracy. If taxpayers money is determined to be wasted then it should be re-directed to new or better-managed programs. Maybe even returned to the people who actually pay the taxes.
