Bush Has A '60s Flashback

The Bush administration is backing away from urban programs that Republicans of a generation ago supported.

Federal urban policy has an odd way of evolving, as evidenced by President Bush's plans for the Community Development Block Grant and Section 8 housing programs. Bush's plan to re-establish federal control over community and economic development programs "represents an eerie mirror image of the Johnson administration's original vision of urban aid."
