Congress Cutting Lifesaving Programs- Urgent Action Needed
This week in Washington, DC, the House Budget Committee dramatically cut the President’s budget to fight AIDS and poverty around the world.
Everyday in Africa, 6,500 people die from AIDS, leaving behind a generation of orphans. Many of these lives could be saved if they had access to lifesaving medicine and clean drinking water.
Everyone from President Bush to Senator Kerry agree that now is the time for America to do something to stop the misery caused by AIDS and poverty in Africa. Congress and the President have agreed on a bipartisan plan to deal with this urgent crisis.
But one person is standing in their way: Congressman Jim Nussle
As Chairman of the House Budget Committee, Congressman Nussle is slashing proposed funding for these much needed programs. These programs represent only around 1% of the federal budget, but could save millions of lives around the world.
He’s out of step with the President.
He’s out of step with Democrats AND Republicans.
