CatholicVote blogger interviewed by Al Jazeera on the Ryan budget

Stephen White is a fellow in the Catholic Studies Program at the Ethics and Public Policy Center — and a blogger here at CatholicVote. He was invited to a discussion on the Ryan budget by — of all places — Al Jazeera. They also noted a recent campaign started by American sisters called Nuns on a Bus who are travelling across the country to oppose Paul Ryan’s budget.

Host Shihab Rattansi had a conversation with Stephen White and John Gehring of Faith in Public Life and Sister Marie Lucey of the Franciscan Action Network. Steve was outnumbered 2 to 1, but did an excellent job explaining the importance of reforming the government’s health care plan for senior citizens.

    When the costs of entitlement programs cause there to be more unemployed and poor people, it is no longer operating as a safety net. It’s robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    Leave your hands off my children’s Medicare. I pay taxes too.
