Our debt ceiling was raised in August when President Obama signed the Budget Control Act of 2011, but at what cost? The rich won’t have to pay; the wealthiest in this country will still receive their tax breaks and subsidies. Guess what, we will. The Congressional Supercommittee will announce over $1.5 trillion in budget cuts come November 23. What’s on the chopping block? Medicare, Medicaid, SNAP/food stamps, and Social Security…safety net programs that are the last buffer for millions of people of color who have never recovered from the Great Recession.
