Budget Priorities segment of August 11 Hearland Labor Forum, KKFI
Ira Harritt, Kansas City Program Coordinator, provided an update on the federal budget debate on KKFI Community Radio's Heartland Labor forum on Thursday, August 11, 2011. In this interview he reviewed what economists and leaders are saying about the recent budget deficit deal and discussed what will really put people back to work and heal our ailing economy.
Excerpts from the show:
A Call to Move the Money
Dear Community Leader,
Let’s face it. The U.S. economy is in bad shape.
Too many members of our community are suffering while Congress is debating ideological issues that are beside the point. Federal and State government budget cutting is creating more unemployment, providing less help for people hit by job loss or illness and making the economic recession worse.
“Everyone deserves justice and peace!” This was the sentiment of youth from the Learning Club Leadership Academy, a neighborhood teen youth program serving inner-city youth surrounding Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Kansas City, Kansas. The group’s members participated in the American Friends Service Committee’s Reflections on Afghanistan Mural project, which is teaching area youth about the Afghan people, the Afghan war and the impact the war has had on people there, on U.S. soldiers and on the United States.
