Early on Saturday, February 19, the House voted to make huge cuts in this year’s budget. Poverty-fighting, cost-effective programs - which make up less than one percent of the US budget - were sharply cut.
Key programs that fight AIDS, malaria and hunger were cut by 40%. Programs that promote long-term economic growth were chopped up to 30%. We know Congress faces tough choices on the budget, but these cuts fall hardest on the people who can least afford them.
