Paul Ryan Wants to dismantle Social Assistance to Families

Ryan was the man of the hour, according to and article on Politico. “Having spent a quarter-century in Washington—as an intern, waiter, junior think-tanker, Hill staffer and, since 1999, as a member of Congress—he had never wavered in his obsession with fixing what he viewed as the nation’s two fundamental weaknesses: its Byzantine tax system and ballooning entitlement state. Now, with House Republicans celebrating the once-in-a-generation achievement of a tax overhaul, Ryan was feeling both jubilant and relieved—and a little bit greedy. Reveling in the afterglow, Ryan remarked to several colleagues how this day had proven they could accomplish difficult things—and that next year, they should set their sights on an even tougher challenge: entitlement reform. The speaker has since gone public with this aspiration, suggesting that 2018 should be the year Washington finally tackles what he sees as the systemic problems with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.”

Going after entitlements have been the cornerstone of conservative thinking since the American Revolution. Entitlements are the trade-off for being taxed by our government. Many Families depend on them to get by in America. Anyone putting Government or Political Ideology over people shouldn’t be in a position to represent the country. The truth of the matter is. We must serve and protect the citizens in this country. We do this by protecting the people with our military and serving them through social programs, a fundamental principle of American. When will leadership begin to understand the connection between to the two. #serve&protect
