Bishops Still Want You on Food Stamps
Jonathan Easley, The Hill
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is criticizing the House-passed Republican budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan for cutting food stamps and other assistance programs for the poor.
In a letter sent to the House Agriculture Committee on Monday, the bishops say the budget fails to meet certain “moral criteria” by disproportionately cutting programs that “serve poor and vulnerable people.”
