The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Office of Public Witness is concerned about the impact of the House approved Ryan budget on persons living in poverty across the globe, including the U.S. Although many congressional arguments are framed as partisan politics and spending cuts, this really is a significant class war (with persons on both sides of the aisle supporting similar views) emerging that threatens to debilitate many persons in local communities. State and local governments will be significantly impacted with dire poverty and the challenges that follow if some of the proposed legislation is passed by both the House and Senate. However, the greatest impact will be felt in local communities. It is important that you not be silent in these times.
Constituents are important to political leaders! Your participation in the political process is important. Let your Senators and Representatives hear from you.
