Deficit! Sequester! Budget! Tax Reform! . . . and Faith? Catholic Sisters have joined with interfaith partners to tell the President and leaders of Congress that “it is time to frame the budget debate in terms of moral choices that are understandable to the American people.” NETWORK is offering tools to help people of faith like you to understand and share about the connections between public budgets - both expenses and revenue - and our faith.
Weaving together our commitment to justice with the tools of interactive, multi-media education, NETWORK's new tax curriculum We the Taxpayers will empower you to better understand and equip others to transform our national conversation about a federal budget that reflects our values: a Faithful Budget. Inequality is on the rise, and many elected officials claim we don’t have enough money to create the communities we want --- communities with good education, dignified healthcare, and clean, safe places to live, work, play, and pray. In truth, all we need is public support for a strong enough tax base to build those things together. Our choices about the way we use and move money can bring us closer to God's intentions for abundance, or drive fragments of our nation farther apart.
