The seemingly-endless series of manufactured budget crises continues to dominate public debate here in Washington, but polls show Americans becoming increasingly disinterested in these crises. This week, Rev. David Beckmann joins Welton to discuss why it’s crucial for people of faith to remain engaged – and to offer three concrete steps any of us can take toward that end. Rev. Beckmann is president of Bread for the World, and the recipient of the World Food Prize for his work. He is also one of the many signatories to last week’s Circle of Protection letter to national political leaders calling on them to resist cutting food and poverty programs in the name of solving our federal budget crises.
