There is an old saying: “Look at a person’s checkbook, and you will read the person’s heart.”
Lately the media haver been awash with the federal checkbook – i.e. budget proposals, one by the president and the other by Rep. Paul Ryan. Yet there is another checkbook being proposed called “The People’s Budget,” signed onto by 80 members of Congress, that is quite different than those of the president and Ryan, and reveals a different heart. But little is mentioned about this proposal in our mass media.
Why is this?
