From MSBC director Will Ikard:
"Once again, with this budget, the President has shown a desire to destroy the American programs that ensure a functioning society. Massive cuts to food assistance, health care, and student aid will make our communities less stable and do nothing to help our small businesses. Only when every American has their basic needs met - food, shelter, health, education - can they live up to their full potential as workers, consumers, or entrepreneurs. This budget takes us further in the wrong direction.
