Bishops Caution Cutting Social Programs for Poor

April 18, 2012
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is calling on Congress to protect programs for the poor and vulnerable as it works on spending bills.

In a letters sent to lawmakers, the conference urged them to save housing programs for the elderly, people with disabilities and veterans; stop cuts to food stamps; and preserve child tax credits for "hard-working, immigrant families."

"At a time when the need for assistance from [Housing and Urban Development] programs is growing, cutting funds for them could cause thousands of individuals and families to lose their housing and worsen the hardship of thousands more in need of affordable housing," the letter focused on housing says.
