Federal Budget Priorities

NETWORK focuses on elements of the federal budget that move our nation and world toward economic justice. We analyze the elements to determine how they affect people at the margins and those with the least economic power.

Federal Budget, Debt and Taxes

NETWORK firmly believes that the federal budget is a moral document because it presents the clearest expression of our nation’s priorities. Just as a family prioritizes expenditures and decides how it will cover those expenses, so does a nation.   

NETWORK analyzes aspects of the federal budget each year in light of our faith, calling upon the totality of our Catholic social justice tradition. We are reminded that we are responsible for all of humanity and our varied ecosystems; and that we are to treat others as Jesus has before us.
