Table: Bush vs. Congress


TAXES

Key Republicans and most Democrats want the Bush plan scaled back.

SPENDING

Congress could add to his Pentagon request.

EDUCATION

Reform, yes. Vouchers, no. A battle looms over testing.

CAMPAIGN-FINANCE REFORM

Bush doesn't want to rein in unregulated donations, but Congress may pass legislation by spring.

HEALTH CARE

Bush may have to swallow a patient's bill of rights.

MEDICARE

The White House plan for health-care reform is on life support. Congress will struggle to write its own version.

SOCIAL SECURITY

At best he'll get another reform commission.
