For months now, the media has talked about how Paul Ryan has made a shift on addressing poverty, partly inspired by Pope Francis's example. Unfortunately, his budget released this past week is just more of the same. For the fourth straight year, Representative Ryan's plan attempts to balance the budget on the backs of the poor.

The Catholic Church is clear: the budget is a moral document that expresses the priorities of a nation. Ryan's budget cuts funding from programs that serve the poor, while giving tax breaks to the wealthiest of Americans.

Therefore, today we asked our membership sign on to this letter to Representative Ryan asking him to change priorities, and pass a budget that better serves the poorest in our midst.
