Rangel: “Jesus Would Have Something to Say” About the Debt Debate

Congressman Charles Rangel , D-NY, doesn’t know exactly what Jesus would say about the debt crisis, but he thinks religious leaders should be a part of the conversation.

“It is a moral question. So I am surprised that we don’t hear from the rabbis and the priests and the ministers and the imams. This is their business, not just politicians’,” he told Fox News on Sunday.

Two days earlier, Congressman Rangel held a news conference where he asked “What would Jesus do” about the debt problem He called on religious leaders to speak up on the Medicare and Social Security cuts Republicans want to make, which would hit the elderly and the poor the hardest.

Rangel insists, “If the sky, the economic sky was to fall the very rich in this country would not feel any pain at all.”
