The federal budget is 3,000 pages long and spends 3 trillion dollars. But can we view it as an expression of our national values? We’ll discuss the budget as a moral document with two important members of Congress.

Rep. Jim McGovern will share his experience living on a food stamp budget for one week. And Rep. Lois Capps will tell us how her background as a registered nurse affects her view on health care spending.

Plus we’ll talk to a unique lobbyist who works on the budget…she’s also a Catholic nun.

State of Belief explores the intersection of religion with politics, culture, media, and activism. Through interviews with newsmakers and celebrities, reports from the field, and his own commentary, Welton shows how religion and radical freedom are best friends and how the religious right is wrong – wrong for America and bad for religion.
