The Titanic sails at dawn - politics, economics & culture
Remember, as far as the political world is concerned, Paul Ryan is the best Republicans have to offer. He’s not some random back-bencher; he’s the GOP’s go-to guy on fiscal issues.
And yet, Ryan’s agenda is basically an arithmetic-challenged fraud, and he apparently has no idea what the “the drivers of our debt” are.
Paul Ryan cannot maintain coherence for longer than one sentence. He talks about "debt" like it is some phrase he heard on MTV and all the cool kids are using it. No policy he has ever espoused has anything to do with the debt. He only cares about lower taxes for rich people. He deeply believes that is the only real problem facing America so everything he does is towards that end. Deficit spending, unemployment, physical infrastructure, currupt financial industries, global warming, war...all "YP"s. If he had an ounce of integrity he would just come clean and join the Libertarian party, but instead he sits on his committee and plays word association games with whatever he hears important people saying and then crafts a policy that lowers rich people's taxes.
