NO CRUELTY BUDGET. NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY, WHAT MATTERS IS WHAT WE SAY!sm
With a national budget hemorrhaging red ink, even the profligate pork barrel princes in Congress had to do something. And what is their solution?
Will they trim back even modestly any of the gratuitous tax cuts gifted to the most wealthy and the most fortunate? No, they propose to cut the last ropes of what remains of the social safety net for those hurt most by their "soak the masses and give it all to the corporate kingpins" policies, apparently to pave the way for even MORE reckless tax injustice.
They want to cut to the bone Medicare, Medical, food stamps, student loans, pension protection, Supplemental Social Security . . . the massacre list goes on and on. It is time that we renounce the voices of cruelty in our government. This shameful budget bill must not pass. It is time for people who are NOT cruel to speak out against those who are. Your members of the house of Representatives are all up for election next year. It would not hurt to remind them of that.
Tell your members of Congress to SAVE essential social lifeline services!

This budget has been called "immoral" by voices representing a wide ranging spectrum of the religious community. For example, all 65 synod bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America have signed a letter to members of Congress in strong protest opposing the proposed budget cuts.
