  • bishops – MCT ZIA NIZAMI Bishops Rightly Criticize Ryan’s Budget Proposal

    The messages of caring for the needy and loving the poor within the Bible seem to have been lost on Republican House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and replaced with messages of tax breaks for the rich and oil subsidies.
