Is the federal budget a moral document? The budget proposed by Congressman Paul Ryan contains cuts to the food stamp program, as well as to Medicaid for chilldren and disabled.
Those cuts could result in 2 million families sliding into poverty, 8 million people losing food stamp support, and as many as 30 million people losing health care.
Those cuts for poor people could help balance the extra $8 billion that the Congress wants to give the Department of Defense (DOD); that’s $8 billion more than the DOD requested.
The Congress also proposes cutting funding for the State Department.
So more for war, less for diplomacy.
Doesn’t sound like a moral document to me.
