Marian Wright Edelman reviews the Ryan budget plan

0 Comments | Posted

Interesting and enlightening opinion piece on the Ryan budget plan last week by Marion Wright Edelman who is President of the Children's Defense Fund. Remember folks, knowledge is power.

Hungry child,
I didn't make this world for you.
You didn't buy any stock in my railroad.
You didn't invest in my corporation.
Where are your shares in standard oil?
I made the world for the rich
And the will-be-rich
And the have-always-been-rich.
Not for you,
Hungry child.

-- Langston Hughes, “God to Hungry Child”
