From the Call to Renewal: Budgets are Moral Documents

Budgets are moral documents that reflect the values and priorities of a family, church, organization, city, state, or nation. They tell us what is most important and valued to those making the budget. Examining budget priorities is a moral and religious concern.

On February 7, President Bush put forth his 2006 Budget Proposal. Despite the fact that 36 million Americans currently live in poverty and 45 billion Americans live without health insurance, the President's budget proposes a 16% reduction over 5 years in domestic programs and a $45 billion net reduction in Medicaid over the next 10 years. At the same time, the President's budget asks for $2.45 trillion over 10 years to extend existing tax cuts and approve more cuts!

Call to Renewal hopes that you will partner with us to take prophetic action against a budget, which asks that the cost of the deficit be borne by the poor. We look forward to taking action with you to ensure that our nation’s budget reflects our values of compassion, fairness and security for all American families.

TAKE ACTION:

Make your voice heard that “Budgets are Moral Documents!”
