Help ESA Work for Economic Justice

by Ron Sider
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.
Now more than ever, your support of ESA's biblically balanced public policies can have a dramatic impact. Will you give today to help us reach more people with this important message? Even $10 will go a long way to ensuring that lawmakers hear our message of economic justice. Please donate now.
