Why Liberty Needs Justice: A Response to the Tea Party-Occupy Film
This week, Rep. Paul Ryan, Chair of the House Budget Committee, will submit his proposal for the Fiscal Year 2013 U.S. Budget. Most pundits predict it will be largely the same as last year's proposal, which balanced the budget on the backs of the poor. Two-thirds of all proposed cuts came from programs that help the most vulnerable among us, while Ryan offered tax cuts to the richest 1 percent. When his proposal drops, I urge CT's readers to watch this film and consider for themselves. Then let beauty have its way; engage the public square.
