Faithful America Members Meet with Rep. Emanuel Cleaver

August 5, 2011, 11:33 am | Posted by Nick Sementelli

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) has been a strong voice calling for moral budgets in the political conversation of the last few months. While comical, his characterization of last week’s debt ceiling deal as a “Satan sandwich” summed up how many people of faith felt about the proposal that included unfair cuts to programs that serve working families and vulnerable Americans and asked for no shared sacrifice from the wealthy and powerful.

This morning, Faithful America members from the Kansas City area met with Rep. Cleaver to share their thoughts on the debt deal, the budget and the status of our moral economy. We’re thankful to Rep. Cleaver for his willingness to engage his constituents and his leadership on these issues.
