Bush's "Culture of Life" -- Cut Housing for the Poor
Republicans like to talk about "moral values" and "family values" and the "culture of life" alot but it has nothing to do with loving and taking care of the weak and the poor in our society:
The Bush administration pays lip service to the goal of "ending chronic homelessness" - while undermining the very programs that keep poor people from ending up in the streets. The Housing and Urban Development Department is proposing unreasonable cuts in federal subsidies, which would make it harder for underfinanced housing authorities to keep their developments livable and safe. And a proposal in Congress would make it harder for the poor to get rental subsidies from Section 8, the public-private partnership that underwrites rents for nearly two million of the country's low-income families and encourages builders to develop affordable housing.
