White House Acknowledges 'Real Impact' Of Cuts To Energy Assistance Funding

The Obama administration acknowledged on Monday that its proposal to slash funding for heating assistance to the poor would, in fact, hurt the poor.

"This is a very hard cut," White House budget director Jacob Lew said during a press conference. "This is a cut that has real impact."

The White House's proposed budget for fiscal year 2012 halves funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, reducing its allocation to $2.5 billion from just over $5 billion.'


But hell, we still got plenty of cash for wars and to send $3 Billion a year to Israel!!!
