Rep Debbie Dingell reacts to White House press briefing.


Representative Debbie Dingell expressed her upset and dismay with Thursday's White House Press briefing in a post Friday. Dingell's frustration was in response to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's comments that Meals On Wheels doesn't help anyone, after school programs don't help young people, and the Great Lakes don't matter.

According to Rep Dingell, "The proposed budget yesterday is unacceptable but worse is the indifference about feeding kids who don't get fed, seniors who are alone and isolated...truth is under siege...our moral compass and values are as well."

When referring to Meals On Wheels during the press conference Thursday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated, "The Meals On Wheels program is just not showing results."

Alison Foreman, Director of Ypsilanti Meals On Wheels was interviewed on CNN's The Lead with Jake Taper. Alison Foreman both defended and supported the Meals On Wheels program while speaking live on CNN. According to Alison, "Any cut will endanger services."
