This Affects YOU: Lower Fuel Economy; No More Help for Bad Neighborhoods or meal assistance



Today's blog in one in a new series we'll be doing called "This Affects You." Its purpose to help inform people (especially in Conservative states) of what's happening in Washington, DC. We recently read that people in Republican States never hear about political happenings. So, THIS is especially for you.  The following things WILL affect Conservatives and Liberals in ALL states 
(NOTE: these are from legitimate news sources, so turn off Fox news and delete Breitbart from your browsers).

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CONSIDERING $6 BILLION IN CUTS TO DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT
WHAT IT MEANS: The plan would squeeze public housing support and END most federally funded community development grants, which provide services such as meal assistance and cleaning up abandoned properties in low-income neighborhoods." 

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS MOVING TO ROLL BACK FEDERAL FUEL-ECONOMY REQUIREMENTS -  
WHAT IT MEANS:  People will basically pay more in the future as gas prices go up, and fuel economy doesn’t.   
**** The regulations would have forced automakers to increase significantly the efficiency of new cars and trucks. Automakers asked EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to discard a Jan. 13 decision that requires the fleet of new cars to average a real-world figure of 36 miles per gallon

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
