Good News For AmericaEric Holder was guilty of contempt over Fast and Furious and when reminded of this by a Republican before the Congressional panel after stonewalling (again) about the IRS scandal, he went crying to Al Sharpton's crowd that everyone was being mean to him and he and Obama were being treated differently.
The color of his skin just comes in handy to aid in covering up his and Obama's political deceptions. That's all that's going on here with skin color.
And it's getting really annoying.
Remember the world's poor throughout the federal budget process
The United States has had a long and proud history of being a world leader on global health issues. Over the last decade, the U.S. has led the charge in tackling numerous challenges such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases, showing both pragmatic and moral leadership in the effort to improve health worldwide.
In doing so, the U.S. has demonstrated particular attention to the poor, a focus that Pope Francis has strongly encouraged in his first year in office. After his meeting last month with the Holy Father, President Obama said he and the American people had been inspired by the new pope’s global leadership on poverty.
“I was extremely moved by his insights about the importance of us all having a moral perspective on world problems,” the president shared after his conversation with the pope.
One of the biggest indicators of a country’s priorities from a moral perspective is how it chooses to spend its revenue. The United States has steadily increased its aid in important global health efforts, most notably those that improve the lives of the poorest people on earth. In the most recently passed budget, a bipartisan group of lawmakers continued this trend, increasing federal funding for global health.
