Van Hollen: GOP Budget "Cruel" to the Poor

Cong. Chris Van Hollen has an op-ed today at Politico that excoriates the GOP House budget on account of its cuts to anti-poverty programs. As well, today Sr. Simone Campbell will be testifying before Congress on the budget. We have heard lots of words from Cong. Paul Ryan, Chair of the House Budget Committee, about the poor. Now it is time for him to translate those words into actions.
