Catholic nuns protest US budget cuts
Catholic nuns protest US budget cutsA group of roman catholic nuns are taking an unusual bus ride across America. They are protesting against government budget cuts, which they say are harming low income families. A recent Vatican report criticised some nuns for focusing too much on economic injustice Even though the nuns were stung by the criticism from Rome, they decided to stay the course and say the firestorm has given them a platform. In their latest trip, the nuns are in Janesville Wisconsin to deliver an alternative budget to Rep. Paul Ryan, in which they propose a plan that favors a safety net for the worst off instead of tax cuts for the rich. There is every sign they'll continue to take their gospel on the road, with or without the Vatican's blessing. Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports from Janesville, Wisconsin.
