Jonathan’ll be the first to tell you that Oneida has its own share of problems and poverty. As a town built around coal mining, there’s a lot of poverty. But he’ll also be the first to tell you that what makes that town special is the good-hearted people who know what it’s like to struggle and are still committed to helping their neighbors and others halfway around the world.
The president’s proposed cuts to foreign aid – nearly ⅓ – would be disastrous for those living in extreme poverty. Millions suffering from famine would be denied life-saving food aid. Girls wouldn’t be able to go to school. Kids wouldn’t be able to receive vaccines.
Congress can stop these cuts – but only if we speak out. Share the above video if you agree with Jonathan: It’s America’s job to do America’s part.
