Ignoring the Hungry in America

 Republican senators are blocking $16 billion in food assistance for Americans struggling in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Let's be clear: this delay in food aid may lead to even more Americans unnecessarily dying," declared Hunger Free America CEO Joel Berg. "The opposition of congressional Republicans and President Trump to increasing domestic food support during the worst health and hunger crises in modern times is not only morally outrageous and economically self-defeating, but it is also, frankly, dumb politics...It is simply unconscionable that Leader McConnell and the Senate GOP are playing politics with food aid while massive numbers of their own constituents struggle against hunger."
