Nuns on the Bus tour rolls through Waterloo

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A group of nuns rolled through Waterloo Thursday afternoon to discuss the Romney-Ryan budget plan.

The non-profit organization 'Nuns on the Bus" are working together with the organization 'NETWORK'--a Catholic organization working to educate people about social and economic issues.

They offered their idea of a 'Faithful Budget' as a counter to the Republican's proposed budget.

This plan was drafted in Washington by an ecumenical group of Christians, Jews and Muslims.

The plans advocates for reasonable revenue for responsible programs, including education, meaningful employment and a social safety net for the poor.

 The bus made three stops in Iowa today because of our state's importance in the upcoming election.
