Romney’s Welfare Lie Brings Out Sister Simone’s Ruler
Remember what Jake and Elwood went through in The Blues Brothers movie? :)
NETWORK, a National Catholic Social Justice Lobby, has invited Romney to join them – for a day – serving the people that the sisters help daily who are struggling in our tough economy. The Executive Director of the organization, Sister Simone Campbell, knows that these are the people who will be further harmed by the policies Romney is proposing and the recent divisive political ads about welfare. She released a statement that pretty much nails what is happening at the moment.
“Recent advertisements and statements from the campaign of Governor Romney demonize families in poverty and reflect woeful ignorance about the challenges faced by tens of millions of American families in these tough economic times. We are all God’s children and equal in God’s eyes. Efforts to divide us by class or score political points at the expense of the most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters reveal the worst side of our country’s politics.”
I really don’t understand how anyone who values honesty or is devout in any religion, can look the other way as Mitt Romney and his campaign spread one lie after another. If you haven’t seen it yet, Steve Benen is doing holy work at The Maddow Blog keeping track of Mitt’s Mendacity. (28 volumes of lies)
