Action Alert!

Your collection dollars at work, cont.

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 15, 2005

Assuming that you are a US citizen, where do you stand on the minimum-wage law? Do you think Medicaid is a good, fiscally sound program? How about the National Affordable Housing Trust? And what is your attitude toward the world diamond trade?

The reason I ask is to discern whether you'd want to support an organization which has promised, among other things, to:

  • Support legislation for raising the minimum wage to help full-time workers to support themselves and their families.
  • Oppose legislation that would undermine the Medicaid program.
  • Support legislation to establish a National Affordable Housing Trust Fund that would provide new resources to fund the development and maintenance of rental housing affordable to low income families.
  • Support legislation designed to strengthen conditions for the sale and distribution of diamonds‚Ķ.

Not sure where you stand on all these issues? That's OK. I'll let you think a bit, and be back with more questions.

    Too easy, Diogenes. Without cheating (by going to their Website) or even thinking twice, I can confidently say these are all positions of the USCCB.
