The fight continues in Washington. Unfortunately, the losers of this fight are the nearly 46 million people living in poverty. While officials argue, the most vulnerable — the elderly, those with disabilities and the poor — struggle.
Talks continue in Washington and with those elected to represent us. For the rest of us, though, that poverty is not just a political issue. We have a moral responsibility to help our neighbors.
Citizens of one of the richest countries in the world should demand access to food, health care, education and housing for all of our family members, friends and neighbors so everyone can live in dignity and decency.
