Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan need to RSVP to the nuns. Dear Jim,
"I'm not concerned about the very poor." That's what Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in a televised interview on CNN after he won the Florida primary.
And now he's doubled down on that sentiment by naming Paul Ryan, whose budget would give $3 trillion in tax cuts to the richest Americans while drastically cutting food stamps for millions of poor Americans,1 to the Republican ticket.
Clearly, Romney and Ryan are dangerously out of touch. Thankfully, a group of righteous women who have dedicated their lives in service to the least among us have invited Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to spend a day with them to learn about the struggles of some our poorest citizens.2Tell Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: RSVP to the nuns.

You may be familiar with "Nuns on the Bus," a group of courageous women who have been traveling to the Congressional districts that would be hardest hit by Paul Ryan's immoral Tea Party budget that gives money to the ultra-rich while stripping vital services from the poorest Americans.
Now the nuns are turning their attention to the Republican presidential and vice presidential candidates directly. But neither Romney nor Ryan has RSVPed to the nuns who have asked them to "spend a day with Catholic Sisters who work every day to meet the needs of struggling families in their communities."3Tell Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: RSVP to the nuns.

If we can build more momentum for the "Nuns on a Bus" invitation to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, we can help them get a response from the campaign and bring more attention to the immoral dimensions of their heartless policies for the poor.
We'll deliver your signatures to the Romney-Ryan campaign and to Sister Simone Campbell so that the Catholic sisters can use our petitions to help further their fight for social justice.
