Even though less than 1% of the US budget is devoted to programs that help fight extreme poverty in developing countries, these poverty-fighting priorities were to cut in the House of Representatives budget for 2011. But thanks to pressure from 150,000 petitioners, of whom more than 13,000 were Change.org members, these programs were spared.
“The threat of Congress severely cutting these programs was very real,” Said Sheila Nix, US Executive Director of ONE in an email to ONE members. “In fact, the budget that's currently on its way to the President's desk for his signature makes some of the most significant cuts to the federal government in American history.

In the fervor to reduce deficits lawmakers are making a whole host of poor choices. One such error is the effort to cut foreign assistance, which is why campaigning group ONE has launched a petition on Change.org to make sure it doesn’t happen....
