Tell Congress needs of impoverished come first

July 4, 2012
The Marietta Times

On Monday, June 25, my husband and I waited outside Speaker John Boehner's office in West Chester, Ohio, to welcome the "Nuns on the bus" (12 nuns) which started in Iowa on June 17 and has been traveling through Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio and continued through Pennsylvania and Virginia to Washington, D.C., on July 2. We had listened to the local Fox news in the morning which said Speaker Boehner would meet with the nuns. About 35 to 40 people gathered to greet the group of nuns who are driving through the nine states for faith, family and fairness. The group consisted of Catholics, Methodists, Church of Christ, Muslim, Jewish and no denomination. All those present were concerned about the Paul Ryan budget plan which would make unfair cuts for programs that help people and continues the Bush tax cuts for the top 1 percent of the country.
