Bishops Support Obama on Key Funding Issues
The Catholic Bishops have sent a letter to all members of Congress. It touches on a wide variety of issues but specifically supports President Obama on key domestic policy issues such as Pell Grants, workforce training and development, SNAP (formerly Food Stamps) and other priorities. The Bishops says the Administration should spend more on housing for the poor and elderly.
The Bishops also warn against shifting health care costs to senior citizens and the disabled. This is a key feature of the Ryan Budget plan.
They also say that in addressing budget deficits, it is wrong to exclude raising revenue and cutting military spending.
A link to the full letter is below.
