LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Arkansas Interfaith Alliance asked the government to protect struggling Americans during the fiscal cliff negotiations.
The Alliance held a prayer event in Little Rock Friday as part of a national day of action that included faith led events all over the country.
The group said the government must not sacrifice Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security in favor of tax breaks for the upper two percent of Americans. They added that it is important as Congress and the Obama administration continue their fiscal showdown that we don't cheat the programs that protect vulnerable Americans.
The Arkansas Interfaith Alliance is a collective group of various faith traditions.
