President Brings Budget Campaign to Michigan

By  | 

President Bush plans to visit Michigan Tuesday and speak at the Detroit Economic Club.

The appearance is a day after Bush sent Congress a $2.57 trillion budget plan.

Bush is seeking deep spending cuts across a wide swath of government from reducing subsidies paid to the nation's farmers, cutting health care payments for poor people and veterans, and trimming spending on the environment and education.

Bush last visited Michigan on January Seventh, when he presided over a discussion of asbestos lawsuits at Macomb Community College in Macomb County's Clinton Township. Bush made 12 trips to Michigan in 2004 during his re-election campaign.

Tickets for Bush's speech already are sold out.
