Nun says Romney-Ryan budget would harm poor families

"We agree with our bishops, and that's why we went on the road: to stand with struggling families and to lift up our Catholic sisters who serve them."

Campbell said the Ryan budget would harm the work of the nuns of America “and that’s wrong.” 

“We all share responsibility for creating an economy where parents with jobs earn enough to take care of their families,” Campbell said. “In order to cut taxes for the very wealthy, the Romney-Ryan budget would make it even tougher for hard-working Americans ... to feed their families. Paul Ryan says this budget is in keeping with the values of our shared faith. I simply disagree.”

Campbell never endorsed President Obama, but did promote his Affordable Care Act.
