â??Nuns on a Busâ?? tour visits Syracuse, protest Ryan House Budget

Nuns on a Bus

The "Nuns on the Bus" tour stopped in Syracuse on Wednesday.

The nuns spoke against federal budget cuts proposed by the Ryan House Budget that they say target poor and middle-class families.

They say the budget cuts proposed by Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan and endorsed by Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle and Mitt Romney will hurt struggling families throughout New York.

"The Mission and Deacons funds of churches are already being taxed by pleas for food, housing, utility help - we canâ??t take on paying for medical care with the changes proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan to end Medicare as we know it," said Reverend Dr. Janet Adair Hansen of Christ Community Church of Cortland last week, according to a media release.
