Why We’re Fasting

Date: March 29, 2011
Author: Mark Bittman
QUOTE: The budget proposes cuts in the WIC program... in international food and health aid... and in programs that aid farmers in underdeveloped countries. Food stamps are also being attacked, in the twisted “Welfare Reform 2011” bill... These supposedly deficit-reducing cuts — they’d barely make a dent — will quite literally cause more people to starve to death, go to bed hungry or live more miserably than are doing so now. And: The bill would increase defense spending.
