Guest Blogger- The Budget Reflects Our Values

May 20, 2011 | By Page May

Father John S. Rausch is a guest blogger over at NETWORK this week!  His piece, The Budget Relects Our Values, discusses growing inequality, taxes, and budget policies in the context of faith, community, and the common good.

       "For people of faith the bishops are right to flag the morality of budget priorities.  A budget actually reflects society’s values.  It quantifies the importance of what to cut and what to cultivate.  But, the bishops’ perspective rests on the common good and the enhancement of community, not simply the enrichment of the individual.  In essence, the budget process asks what kind of community we want to promote."
