Think Progress: PHOTOS: Catholic Nuns Protesting GOP Budget Cuts Visit GOP Rep. King’s Office

PHOTOS: Catholic Nuns Protesting GOP Budget Cuts Visit GOP Rep. King’s Office
By Pat Garofalo posted from ThinkProgress Economy on Jun 19, 2012

As ThinkProgress reported yesterday, a group of Catholic nuns has kicked off a nine-state bus tour to protest cuts to the social safety net that were included in the House Republican budget. The nuns will be visiting the offices of ten Republican lawmakers, stopping yesterday the office of Rep. Steve King (R-IA). Here are photos of the event from the Des Moines Register:







When asked for comment on the visit, King’s office responded with an email that “did not say anything specifically about the nuns,” according to the Associated Press. The nuns will be visiting the office of House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) today.

The Nuns should be put in charge of the church.

5. And Steve King certainly needed a visit from the nuns.

And so does Paul Ryan.

It's been beyond bizarre, to say nothing of disgusting, to hear the GOP rhetoric about food stamps, health care, and more, from Jeff Sessions' claim it's all about morality, and Ryan's notion that his budget fits in with the Gospel.
