A MATTER OF CONCERN!

Another week in Washington brought another
week of attacks on the poor.
The immoral budget proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan
called for billions of dollars in cuts to poverty
programs like Medicaid, food stamps, and other
programs that feed hungry Americans and help
those in need.
But here’s the kicker: Ryan’s destructive plan
would increase the already bloated military budget
Cuts for the least of these. More money for bombs
and guns. Sounds like a horrible plan, right? We
think so. But the sad reality is that this budget
actually passed in the House and was only narrowly
defeated in the Senate.
It was a close call. Too close.
And the threat lingers. Just this weekend, Rep.
Ryan went on Meet the Press and audaciously
claimed these budget priorities were the medicine
needed to restore America's economic health.
These policy debates will continue from now until
Washington needs to act responsibly with taxpayer
money, but balancing the budget on the backs of the
poor is anything but responsible. Paul Ryan and
many other decision-makers believe the only solution
to the budget deficit is cutting poverty programs. You
and I know that’s just not true.
This is not responsible politics. These politicians are
playing chicken with the budget, but the people who
will lose the most are the poor.
