JS online Ryan’s Roadmap Excerpt:Let’s pretend for a moment that Paul Ryan genuinely wants to strenghten and protect Social Security. His 33% private investment scheme actually creates another government-run bureaucracy. Yet, he also proposes to guarantee Social Security benefits while only collecting 66% of the funds that he swears is not enough at a hundred. Those numbers don’t add up. Limited government? Fiscal restraint? Bright idea? Hardly.
At a time when party leaders are looking for new ideas to convince Americans that they can lead again, Republican strategists say he offers a comprehensive plan that could help the party recast itself as the party of limited government and fiscal restraint.
This is WHAT he has to show for after ten years in Congress? It's bad news for taxpayers, bad news for Social Security and it’s very bad news for our future.
