A Few Truths About The Phonies Who Say They Are Anti Social Safety Nets

A Few Truths About The Phonies
Who Say They Are Anti Social Safety Nets

Entitlement Hater Paul Ryan Was A Social Security Baby

April 19, 2011

By Ray Medeiros

When Representative Paul Ryan was 16 years old , tragedy struck
his family. His 55 year old father had passed away from a heart
attack. Young Paul Ryan found his father’s lifeless body and
was burdened by the fact that he had to tell his mother and
siblings of this horrible situation.

After his father’s passing, young Paul Ryan started
collecting social security benefits until the age of 18 years
old. He took this benefit and saved it for his college education.
Representative Paul Ryan is one example of the millions of people
whose lives have depended on our social contract with the
American people. Without this benefit, his mother would have had
to make even tougher decisions and Representative Paul Ryan may
not have been able to pay for his college education. This social
contract lifted him and his entire family out of a tough situation.

Many people do not know that 30% of the social security fund goes
directly to widows,orphans and the disabled. It is not solely for
the benefit of retirees. Unfortunately this social contract is
under a regressive attack by the Republicans, including Paul Ryan.

Under Paul Ryan’s Roadmap for America budget, he wants to
take a portion of social security and funnel it to Wall Street to
gamble with, rather than having the current program stand as it
is, as an insurance program rather than an investment.

Not to mention Ayn Rand (THE GODDESS OF THE REPUCLICAN IDEOLOGY) took government assistance while decrying others who did the same

Mark Frauenfelder

Noted speed freak, serial-killer fangirl, and Tea Party hero Ayn
Rand was also a kleptoparasite, sneakily gobbling up taxpayer
funds under an assumed name [note: it might have been her legal
name] to pay for her medical treatments after she got lung cancer.

An interview with Evva Pryror, a social worker and consultant to
Miss Rand's law firm of Ernst, Cane, Gitlin and Winick verified
that on Miss Rand's behalf she secured Rand's Social Security and
Medicare payments which Ayn received under the name of Ann
O'Connor (husband Frank O'Connor).

As Pryor said, "Doctors cost a lot more money than books
earn and she could be totally wiped out" without the aid of
these two government programs. Ayn took the bail out even though
Ayn "despised government interference and felt that people
should and could live independently... She didn't feel that an
individual should take help."

But alas she did and said it was wrong for everyone else to do so.
