From The New York Times today, news that the Senate and House can keep in millions and billions for war and defense and weapons of war we don't need--or even use--but nothing for "the least of us":
As the Times said: "By brutally stripping food aid from its farm bill, the House ended a tradition of decency."
Then, on top of that, this one:
"Legislation specifically exempted many programs that benefit low-income Americans, but virtually none aiding American Indians were included."
Not that we, as Americans, ever really showed that we gave a collective damn about Native Americans, though, right?
One last note. This same group of government legislators also want to strip out two tax deductions:
Our legislators just keep heaping benefits on the wealthy and corporations while they take from the poor.
Yay, us, huh?
How is it the churches and religious people--the ones who are supposed to be "moral"--aren't screaming about these atrocities?
