Ryan defends budget in face of Catholic critics

Washington (CNN) – Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., defended his proposed federal budget on Thursday against criticism from some Catholics, who say it violates their tradition’s teaching by putting an undue burden on the poor.

Ryan, a Catholic who chairs the House Budget Committee, told students and faculty at Georgetown University, a Jesuit school, that his budget was in line with his understanding of his faith, though some Georgetown faculty are organizing opposition to his proposal.

    Paul Ryan's budget plan is selffish and heartless. He collected disable till he was 18, the country offered help when he needed. Now he wants to unplung the social programs once he needed desperately.
    If his supportors think it's free rides to others, ask Paul Ryan first.
