  •  The US Bishops are quiet on SNAP cuts (11+ / 0-)

    but the Nuns on the Bus have been condemning the cuts since May.

    In their attempts to reduce the deficit, House and Senate members need to focus on areas of the farm bill that can be further cut without increasing hunger and endangering the wellbeing of our children – our hope for a healthy future.

    Corporations, including those profiting from food production and international sales, take advantage of loopholes to pay little or no federal taxes. These sources should be tapped rather than placing further burdens on families who struggle to put food on their tables.

    The Hebrew Scriptures call us to feed even our enemies if they are hungry: “If your enemies are hungry, give them to eat; and if they are thirsty, give them water to drink.” (Proverbs 25:21) We must be responsible for providing for our children and those who are unable to provide for themselves.

    Missing you dad. Still trying to change the world..one person at a time..one day at a time.
