Budget has no values

I read the news about the president’s budget, and I reject the values it reflects. The president’s budget encourages endless war. Unfortunately our insecurity will increase as will the gap between the haves and have nots in our country. With this budget, life for those on the brink of poverty will be harder. Our most vulnerable communities have basic human needs that will continue unmet. I don’t think this budget reflects the values of most Americans, and I call on Rep. John Doolittle to preserve those humanitarian values by challenging this budget.
