Balancing the Budget?

From Tuesday's Washington Post
E. J. Dionne

As the rich get richer and the poor sicken and die from lack of medical care, a TX politician justfies greed by proclaiming "this will teach the poor responsibility".

    Have you read any of the writings of the Rev. Jim Wallis? (He is the one who wrote God's Politics.) Here is the Sojourner's website:

    One of his most consistent messages is that we as a society must begin to see our governmental budgets as moral documents - that we are making a moral statement when we allow our representatives to get away with voting against the poor and the needy. While I support the continuation of a strong separation between Church and State, his message rings true: that it is possible at the same time to allow profound morality to govern our (and our proxys' in Congress) political decisions. And in my opinion, our national budget, with it's churning river of money being diverted to the defense industry and military complex, is obscenely immoral.

    Sarah - thank you for your message. I share your concerns.

    "Worried" is having severe computer problems; hence the delay in response.

    She's the owner of the blog, I'm the helper bee although I've picked up a lot on the posting lately.

    I can be found at or

    We were glad to hear from you. Sometimes "worried" and I think we're talking to ourselves - which is okay but it's nice to kow someone is reading.
