    He is a Congressional Randian, he is a hypocrite that denigrates the same group that he once was.

    He does denigrate HIS OWN HISTORY, as you put it.

    So.... no. You didn't bother to read.

    We probably are. I've long been looking for better ways to actually help the poor.

    I can read very well, thank you very much, and I totally crushed your contention that he is not a Randian....and did not "denigrate" the very group he was once a part of.

    I have read his continuing rehash of his past flim-flamming, you don't cut programs to the poor, cut taxes for the top earners, increase the debt at a greater level.....and expect a better outcome for the poor......unless you ARE a Randian.....which he is and proves again and again by rehashing debunked "proposals".....which we have debated time and again.

    "We"? LOL! Since when did "your own" become plural?

    I know, and as I keep pointing out by showing you how wrong those ways are, I'm surprised that you keep going back to Bell Curves and Randian ideology.

    Restraint upon spending in order to preserve the safety net is not denigrating anyone.

    It will happen. The boomers never had it so good as a result the millenials will never have it so bad.

    Thats not my words, it was an article i once read but it contained harsh realities that democrats and old people refuse to see


    Actually the article was linked in the book "the next america"

    Oooow...you missed it and created a straw argument. The denigration was calling recipients "takers".

    Cutting social services...it not "preserving"....it is....cutting.....while enriching the wealthy....and....increasing the debt at greater rates.

    Flim-flam.

    I've listened to enough of Paul Ryan's propaganda to last me a lifetime. I know Ayn Rand, I know her philosophy, I used to be a objectivist myself. But I grew up.

    Why should I have to spend my hard-earned money on his stupid book?

    you don't have to

    Paul Ryan isn't an objectivist. For one thing, he's a theist.
