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.

Five crazy things Paul Ryan actually believes

1. Some rapes are worse than others

2. Abortions are not OK, ever

3. Social Security is going bust and the only way to save it is to … destroy it

4. Tax cuts for the wealthy will fix the deficit

5. The best government is … small enough that you can drown it in a bathtub

Paul Ryan is also one of the Republicans who conspired “Just say no” to everything President Obama proposed on the very day he was inaugurated.   Ryan violated his Oath of Office by doing so and should be prosecuted / removed from office.

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

 

bush-debtUnder 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.

 

Republicans voted to cut 39 Billion Dollars from the Food Stamp program, but have no problem giving tax breaks to the wealthy.

Republicans constantly site the bible to rationalize their every day actions, yet they refuse to fund programs to feed the poor. Debate on the House floor over SNAP and healthcare sheds light on the GOP hypocrisy.
