Morial also touted a proposed Urban Jobs Act, sponsored by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D, New York) and Rep. Chakah Fattah (D, Pennsylvania), which targets at-risk youth.  Knocking the current thirst among right-wing lawmakers to slash spending, he said, “The worst thing for Congress to do is to do nothing, and to continue this sort of appetite for cutting investments in people.”
