Cuts are unfair to everyday people


Editor, The Commercial:

The sequester cuts are unfair to all the people affected by them. Especially the cuts to Head Start. Many of these parents have to decide whether to buy food, medicine or pay for other necessities. The funds for Head Start are a major necessity for many of these parents.

It doesn’t add up to cut programs for everyday people while big corporations get funds from the government. Boeing received a $30 billion contract from the Pentagon to build 179 airborne tankers. It also received a $124 million refund from the IRS.

Head Start Title I program will see billions of dollars in cuts while these corporations continue to get funds from the government. These cuts must stop. Start making big corporations pay their taxes.
