Reid says budget full of 'wrong choices and wrong priorities'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid strongly criticized President Bush's $2.9 trillion budget proposal, claiming it "uses deception to hide a massive increase in debt."

"The president insists on spending billions on $150,000 tax breaks for multi-millionaires, at the expense of the middle class," The Nevada Democrat said in a statement. "His budget hands out favors for the oil and gas industry, while eroding health coverage for children and seniors."

"Those are the wrong choices and the wrong priorities," Reid added.

-- CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney
