As part of their midwest bus tour this summer from Des Moines, IA to Washington, D.C., Catholic nuns visited a hunger center in Cleveland Tuesday to spread their message about federal budget cuts that will affect the poor.
Basically, these "Nuns on the Bus" are concerned the budget will devastate an already needy segment of the population.
The charitable programs they visited during the tour are run by nuns and receive federal financial support. The nuns are concerned a budget adopted by the House of Representatives that cuts a lot of that money, according to The Plain Dealer.
"We cannot stand by silently when the U.S. Congress considers further enriching the wealthiest Americans at the expense of struggling, impoverished families," according to the Nuns on the Bus website.
