Rep Paul Ryan Received Social Security Benefits.Yet Can't Wait to Cut Yours!




Paul Ryan was born into a well-to-do Janesville, Wisc. family, part of the so-called “Irish mafia” that’s run the city’s construction industry since the 19th century.

When his lawyer father died young, sadly, the high-school aged Ryan received Social Security survivor benefits. But they didn’t go directly to supporting his family; by his own account, he banked them for college. He went to Miami University of Ohio, paying twice as much tuition as an Ohio resident would have; the in-state University of Wisconsin system (which I attended) apparently wasn’t good enough for Ryan. After his government-subsidized out-of-state education, the pride of Janesville left college and went to work for government, where he’s spent his entire career

Ironically, Ryan came to national attention trying to dismantle the very program that helped him go to the college of his choice, pushing an even more radical version of President Bush’s Social Security privatization plan, which failed. He has since become the scourge of the welfare state, a man wholly supported by government who preaches against the evils of government support. He could be the poster boy for President Obama’s supposedly controversial oration about how we all owe our success to some combination of our own hard work, family backing and government support. Let’s say it together: You didn’t build that career by yourself, Congressman Ryan.

Thus Paul Ryan represents the fakery at the heart of the Republican project today. It starts with the contradiction that Mr. Free Enterprise has spent his life in the bosom of government, enjoying the added protection of wingnut welfare benefactors like the Koch brothers. If Herman Cain is Charles and David Koch’s “brother from another mother,” as he famously joked, Ryan is the fourth Koch, swaddled in support from Americans for Prosperity and other Koch fronts. The man who wants to make the world safe for swashbuckling, risk-taking capitalists hasn’t spent a day at economic risk in his entire life.

Now you see, I don't care if he collected social security, I like the idea of social programs. The whole problem is that he is constantly down talking people on social benefits. Wanting to privatize social security and medicare, when he knows that would do nothing but help him and his banker friends while screwing the people. But why should he care? He already got gold out of the pot, he's already rich, why should he be concerned about the meager peasants.

You, Paul Ryan are the personification of the welfare state. You've already received multiple years of SS. You voted for TARP, stimulus spending under Bush and Obama, the auto-bailout, paid for your college tuition via government, gov pays for a portion of your house, and voted no to allowing medicare pharmaceutical cost negotiating so that the corporations could not charge as much as they want.

Paul Ryan, I crown you the king of welfare, especially corporate welfare and for being a giant hypocrite.

When he was 16, Ryan found his 55-year-old father lying dead in bed of a heart attack.[6][15] Following the death of his father, Ryan's grandmother moved in with the family, and because she had Alzheimer's, Ryan helped care for her while his mother commuted to college in Madison, Wisconsin.[6] After his father's death Ryan received Social Security survivors benefits until his 18th birthday, which were saved up in order to pay for his college education

At age 16 his father died, then collected for 2 years while his grandmother was living there taking care of 4 kids plus the grandmother for a whole 2 years.

Yeah that really makes him a "welfare" king

A lot of people voted for Tarp, and a lot of people support "corporate welfare" which is exactly what social programs are.

Thats the thing about politicians. Most are "older", have gone to college, made good investments, and are set for the remainder of their lives.

Everyone else who wants to take advantage of the same programs they used to get to where they are today suddenly become the "bad guys", or "lazy".

I would LOVE to go to college and do more with my life than working in a factory churning out products day in and day out, and hopefully be able to retire some day and enjoy my final years. I would love to have the knowledge to work on some of the greatest problems plaguing the entire planet's population. Make a real difference.

To call people lazy for not having the same opportunities made available to them is a bit conceited. Actively making it harder for people to take advantage of certain programs to better themselves is downright wrong.

This thread is about "victims" collecting Entitlements.
The "victim" in this case is Ryan.
Lets discuss how we agree that he was in the 47%.

Relevance? Paul Ryan claims he is for small government and free enterprise when he clearly isn't. He is the king of welfare and hypocrisy. Please just accept this and move on. It's documented, there is nothing you can do to defend him unless you want to backtrack on your supposed political views.

Go make them and stop trying to deflect mine.

What’s the alternative, RealSpoke?

Are you advocating for more of the same?



Are you going to feed us BS about how redistributing the diminishing wealth of this nation is our best course of action? Who do we rape when everyone is broke?

Relevance is those people who voted for tarp are evil and there were a lot of people who voted for tarp.

50 million on ss and only singling out 1 guy.

Yep there is a welfare king since never before in this nations entire history there are more people on it now than ever.

And that's not on Ryan.

Why does the left feel the right wants to eliminate all social entitlements completely?

There is nothing wrong with giving a helping hand to those who need it....for a limited time. America's social entitlements have created generations of people who feel the government should be there to look out for them.

Yes, Ryan voted for TARP, completely disagree with that. Ryan wants to modify government entitlements, what is wrong with that?

Ryan has voted for 10000x more corporate welfare than the average American could even draw from social programs if they were on it for a hundred lifetimes.

And that's not on Ryan.

As an added note, there is also the fact that 300 billion and change from TARP remained when Obama was inaugurated. Did he give it back into the treasury, thinking it's as bad an idea as many here say it was for Bush to pass it? Heck no... He was DEMANDING the money be left alone in the days before he took power so he'd have it...and he set immediately to spending the last 1/3rd of it. So... TARP for blame is like speeding tickets at a Nascar track. Everyone would be getting some and no one's innocent in this rat race.


Of course... Some still see this as actually being two different sides to compare.
That's getting downright humorous to watch as the extremes are pushed for it more and more each day. The MEN are different on a personal level but they all check in to do the same dirty work for the same dirty people...and this train ends at the same place whether Obama and Biden are the conductors or Romney and Ryan are. It might just take a bit longer in getting there from one side, that's all that changes.
