Paul Ryan Sucks: Enemy of the Poor and Middle Class

To understand who Paul Ryan is you must first know who he idolized when he was gowning up. That person was a radical ideologue by the name of Ayn Ran.

Paul Ryan once stated; “The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand .”

 

 

PAUL RYAN’S WAR ON POVERTY

Paul Ryan’s anti-poverty agenda is a SHAM. His idea of helping the poor is to completely eliminate food stamps, social security, medicare and medicaid.

Paul Ryan frequently talks about “taker & makers”.  If anyone is a “taker”, it’s Paul Ryan. He’s a career politician who’s been on the public dole his entire life, has no real achievement to speak of and has done nothing for “Average Joe” Americans.

Extreme Makeover: Paul Ryan Wants You To Believe He Will Help The Poor

The Washington Post’s Lori Montgomery reports on ” an ambitious new project ” Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) plans to roll out next year: “an anti-poverty plan to rival his budgetary Roadmap for America’s Future in scope and ambition.” While the proposal is still light on details, Ryan’s advisers promise “kinder, gentler policies to encourage work and upward mobility.”

Paul Ryan: Poor People Need Jesus, Not Food Stamps

Paul Ryan has spent more than a year furiously distancing himself from the wreckage of the 2012 Republican campaign. Even in the closing weeks before the election, Ryan gave a high-profile speech about poverty that amounted to a personal escape pod from Mitt Romney’s disastrous caught-on-tape denunciation of the moocher class.

ALL Republicans are in principle against government programs and Paul Ryan is no different.  They vilify government programs by calling them “socialism” and “communism”.

REPUBLICAN’S AMERICAN HEALTHCARE ACT

Paul Ryan’s American Healthcare Act Is a Wealth Grab, Not A Health Plan

The American Healthcare Act is primarily Paul Ryan’s bill which contains a wish list things Republicans has been wanting to do like cuts to medicare, medicaid & social security which would affect the middle class & the poor while giving handouts & tax breaks to the wealthy.

The 400 highest-earning households in the country would get an average tax break of $7 million per year under the Republican plan.

 

Paul Ryan called a Monster for Dreaming about cutting Medicaid Since College

On a show hosted by Ari Melber on MSNBC, guests Joan Walsh and Nancy Giles called Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan a “monster” and said the way Senate Republicans had handled health care reform has been criminal.

Walsh stated:  I’m thinking, “What the hell kind of a country are we, Ari, that Michael has to lose sleep wondering if he can stay in his home with his family?” I mean, what is this family supposed to do? Paul Ryan has been dreaming about cutting this program since he was sitting — hanging out at keggers in college — he’s told that story.

Giles added… “What kind of a monster is he? Who dreams of cutting Medicaid? They act like people are merely takers — they act like they don’t understand hardship of any kind. Paul Ryan — who actually got Social Security as a survivor when his father died. I mean, the cruelty of this bill is beyond belief”.

 

Paul Ryan Has Fantasized About Cutting Medicaid Since College

 

bush-debt

Under president Bush, Republicans ran up a huge debt of 10 Trillion Dollars.  Now, they want to balance the budget on the backs of the poor and middle class, by cutting food stamps, social security, medicare and medicaid while refusing to cut military spending.  The cold war is over… we don’t need to spend trillions on the military any more.   That money should be spent on the American people, the poor, the homeless, not bombs and wars.

 


A new study shows that despite the makers vs. takers rhetoric pushed by many Republicans, red states are the most dependent on the government.

As shown in this video, the United States has been spending 900 Million a week for the past 10 years in Afghanistan. Republicans has no problem spending trillions of dollars on the military, but they want to cut programs like food stamps, medicare, social security, etc which benefits regular Americans and the poor.
