Polling Evangelicals: Cut Aid to World's Poor, Unemployed

A Pew Research Center survey suggests evangelicals prefer the government spend on schools, the military, and police.

The House of Representatives is working day and night in its effort to cut more than $60 billion from the federal budget. The House is considering a continuing resolution, a bill used to fund the federal government for the remainder of the year [passed earlier this week]. The bill includes deep cuts for environmental agencies, education, and foreign aid (except those related to security). It makes modest reductions for defense, homeland security, and police. These cuts are in line with the spending priorities of most American evangelicals.
