Letter from Greenville News...
I just read that House Republicans voted to cut student loan
subsidies, child support enforcement and aid to firms hurt by
unfair trade practices. They also plan to cut Medicaid, food
stamps and farm subsidies.
The article said that President Bush met with House and
Senate GOP leaders and said he was pleased with the progress.
With all the billions of dollars being spent in Iraq and the huge
tax cut to the wealthiest Americans, what are they doing -
making cuts to the people who can least afford it - the poor,
middle class, students and farmers.
If they cared a whit about us, they would be taking the big tax
break back from the wealthiest and trying to find a way to get
us out of Iraq. That would be a start. We need a Congress
and President that will stand up for us, not for a few far right
Even with the illegal activity and scandal surrounding this
White House, many preachers are still upholding Bush and the
GOP no matter what they do. They still believe that Bush is a
good Christian man and the Republican Party is on their side.
It's about time they opened their eyes to the fact that they are
only being used as a political pawn so these politicians can get
re-elected and push through their agenda. Bush talks-the-talk
but doesn't walk-the-walk. The Bible says to help the poor,
sick and helpless. That was what Jesus was most concerned
about - not abortion and gays.
If cutting programs for the least of us is the Christian way,
then they've changed the definition of being a Christian.
