Note from Daily Kos
Anthony, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is perfectly willing to follow the dictates of the Catholic bishops on limiting women’s access to reproductive health care. Funny how he ignores his church when it advises caring for the poor, ending war—and supporting President Obama’s proposed federal budget instead of Ryan’s own “starve the poor, help the wealthy” plan.
Perhaps the architect of the make-poor-people-pay plan hasn’t read the recent guidance from the Conference of Catholic Bishops that “a just framework for future budgets cannot rely on disproportionate cuts in essential services to poor persons; it requires shared sacrifice by all, including raising adequate revenues, eliminating unnecessary military and other spending, and addressing the long-term costs of health insurance and retirement programs fairly.”
Let’s remind Paul Ryan of his church’s advice.
Thousands of faxes will let Ryan and his fellow conservatives know that you can’t hide behind church teachings when it’s in line with conservative thinking and ignore it when it’s not. Voters are keeping track of the hypocrisy.
