All our faith traditions place people who are impoverished and marginalized at the forefront of concern. The current fiscal debates – at their heart – are a struggle for the soul of our nation and its moral conscience.
We grieve at the soaring gap between rich and poor; faith and fairness require that we preserve and strengthen vital lifelines for people who are struggling to overcome hardship and poverty in the US and abroad. The faithful way forward to fiscal health calls for a focus on job creation, revenue increases, a shared commitment to the common good, and cuts in unnecessary military spending.Doug Grace
