Area Clergy Members Ask Lawmakers for Moral Budget

A group of area clergy members put "Loaves and Fishes Day" into action by delivering loaves of bread and fish to state leaders on Wednesday.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- A group of area clergy members put "Loaves and Fishes Day" into action by delivering loaves of bread and fish to state leaders on Wednesday.

The men and women, along with members of Americans for Tax Fairness, urged state leaders to pass a moral federal budget.

The faith community is encouraging Congress to protect families and seniors, reject austerity and remind them we have enough for all in this country.

"We are going to be holding Congress accountable, and when they come home on the recess we're going to be in their office and busy with them and talking to them about whatever vote they take when these budget measures are voted on in the congress," Candis Collins said.

Faith leaders also released a video asking why lawmakers are giving tax breaks to the super-rich at the expense of educating America's children.
