What are the nation's leaders doing to help hungry and poor people in the U.S. and abroad? Earlier today David Beckmann appeared on The Kojo Nnamdi Show, where he discussed this issue in relation to global food security, his recent fast and the implications of the potential budget cuts. Also on the show: Dan Glickman, former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.
All the programs that help hungry and poor people - if you include the programs that help poor people in our country or hungry people in other countries, it's still not a big part of the federal budget. They did not cause this deficit. -David Beckmann
