Catholic Charities USA President, Rev. Larry Snyder, issued a statement in response to the President’s FY 2014 Budget proposal.
“Catholic Charities USA and our network of local agencies across the country appreciate the opportunity that President Obama’s budget proposal for FY 2014 provides for a serious debate of our priorities as a nation. This conversation comes at a critical time, as the most vulnerable among us are already feeling a disproportionate impact of cuts to social service initiatives prompted by the sequester,” said Snyder. “We call on our leaders in the White House and Congress – on both sides of the aisle – to prioritize investments in initiatives that have proven to be efficient and effective, ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent not on government bureaucracy, but on the people in communities across the country who continue to struggle.”
