Bruce Springsteen writes: "Story on poverty,
aid cuts gives voice to voiceless"

Bruce Springsteen, for decades the voice of the working man, wrote a letter to the editor of his local paper, the Asbury Park Press, expressing his displeasure at "cuts in services to those in the most dire conditions."

The Boss was responding to a story, titled “As poverty rises in NJ, cuts target aid,” that focused on the cuts being made to government services as poverty rises in New Jersey.

Springsteen expressed his gratitude for the article, writing that it “is one of the few that highlights the contradictions between a policy of large tax cuts, on the one hand, and cuts in services to those in the most dire conditions, on the other.”
