GMP Watkins on Politics & Poverty

I join with those who are concerned that neither presidential candidate nor party is truly addressing the needs of people living in poverty.  Here are some words that speak to me from Jennifer Butler of Faith in Public Life:

“On the day before Biden and Ryan square off, Catholic nuns in Ohio launched a 1,000-mile statewide bus tour that calls attention to economic and moral questions the candidates would do well to address. “Ohio Nuns on the Bus” . . . will travel to at least a dozen Ohio communities over a five-day span to highlight the care faith-based social-service agencies provide for poor families, and to call out the immorality of budget cuts that harm these efforts. . . .”
