Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

‘Getting by on Water and Prayer’


Cartoon by David Horsey / Hearst Newspapers

David Beckmann wrote earlier today about the fast he, Tony Hall, and others are starting next Monday. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s David Horsey created this cartoon and wrote a story about the fast, as well as the budget cuts Congress is considering.

“Getting by on water and prayer,” Horsey writes in “Tea Party Budget Hatchets are Aimed at the Poor,” “Beckmann hopes his fast will grab the attention of senators and representatives and make them contemplate the misguided selfishness of the cuts they are proposing.”
