I don’t know why Paul Ryan hates the majority of the American people; low-income workers, and families living in poverty. Every fiscal proposal he has offered since his first election in 1998 has centered around the elimination of programs which help the majority of Americans. He is an enemy of social security, Medicare, and Medicaid. He also approves of murdering thousands of low income Americans who now receive Obamacare. Of course he knows that he will never be forced to rely on these social programs for his or his family’s existence or medical care; he is a multi-millionaire.
He vehemently opposed Donald Trump’s election, until he was gifted the presidency by the Electoral College. Now he is excited; Obamacare will likely be repealed, and Medicare and Medicaid will be greatly reduced.
“So, the health care entitlements are the big, big, big drivers of our debt. There are three. Obamacare, Medicaid, and Medicare. Two out of three are going through Congress right now. So, Medicaid—sending it back to the states, capping its growth rate. We’ve been dreaming of this since you and I were drinking out of a keg.”
Today Medicaid covers more than 73 million Americans. Families living in poverty and receiving welfare, pregnant women, and disabled Americans receive health insurance thanks to this program; Ryan would like to eliminate it completely.
Like Trump, Ryan has experienced a life of privilege. After college, he entered the family business until he set his sights on the sordid life of a professional politician. He chose a career where little is needed from an individual to become wealthy and powerful.
But remember; Ryan is one of those members of the House who is up for reelection in just 20 months. That seems like a long time, but it is not. We who love our nation, which means loving our fellow Americans in spite of our government, must take our nation back from the party of the wealthy.
Please help me inform America and re-post; thank you.
