Thanks for the warning about budget cuts mostly hurting the vulnerable. ("Don’t be fooled, Montana: Budget cuts are to the most vulnerable, not bureaucracy" by Beth Brenneman, et al., Nov. 16.)
Unfortunately, this looks like what is proposed on the national level as well: a budget and tax “reform” that will hurt the majority of Americans, especially the poor, children and the elderly.
Fortunately, the solution is the same on the national level as it is on the local level: contact your representative and senators and tell them vote against the proposed budget and tax “reform.” It is time for reform and a budget that works for all Americans.
