As the Congress returns to Washington this week to attempt to avoid the fiscal cliff, I'm encouraged by news that some representatives who have previously refused to raise any taxes whatsoever – even taxes on the richest Americans – are now backing away from that stance.
The fiscal cliff is scary, but so are some of the so-called solutions that have been proposed, which would attempt to balance the budget on the backs of the nation's poorest and most vulnerable citizens. That's simply unbiblical. ESA is running a vigorous campaign
urging Christians to demand a balanced, fiscally and
morally responsible, approach to the budget crisis.
