Congress must act immediately on a balanced approach that will stop dangerous cuts and instead invest in our children and communities by closing tax loopholes for the wealthiest Americans and big corporations ("Social Security braces for cuts," Feb. 26).
We as a nation can ill afford cuts to education, law enforcement and emergency responders, food and drug safety, mental health services, research and innovation, programs senior citizens rely on, or to the Internal Revenue Service.
Congress must live up to its responsibility to the American people, put a stop to this endless charade of manufactured crises, and start investing in building a brighter future for all who call America home.
