Paul Ryan collected SS benefits until age 18

Oh Ye of Massive Hypocrisy!

Speaking of gooses, ganders, and sauce, perhaps you’ve heard the news that entitlement-hating Paul Ryan collected Social Security benefits until age 18 due to his father’s death and saved them so he could pay for college.

Admirable!

And that seems perfectly fine to me except that now he’s using his education and slavish Ayn-Randiness in an attempt to toss seniors, the disabled, and ill Americans into the streets to fund future tax breaks for the rich class he now works for!

This reminds me of Reagan’s attitude toward the poor and ill yet it was FDR’s New Deal that gave Reagan’s father a job when the family needed help the most.

Well, FDR’s SS program works really well, doesn’t it? (And has nothing to do with the US deficit or debt load.)

So I guess Ryan’s Path to Prosperity can’t be taken but by the very few…just don’t ask too many questions about how they took their first steps because you might find FDR leading the way.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
