"House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday that congressional Republicans will aim next year to reduce spending on both federal health care and anti-poverty programs, citing the need to reduce America's deficit.

“We're going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform, which is how you tackle the debt and the deficit,” Ryan said during an appearance on Ross Kaminsky's talk radio show. "… Frankly, it's the health care entitlements that are the big drivers of our debt, so we spend more time on the health care entitlements — because that's really where the problem lies, fiscally speaking.””*

  1. Hmm…cut entitlements, and raise taxes on the poor, but cut taxes on the rich and corporations. Yep, smells like more GOP bullshit.

    • +ra5928 Yet another guy that doesn’t understand politics. They can’t pass the bill if the cuts didn’t expire because it will increase the deficit. By the point they expire, Republicans will cut government spending so the cuts don’t increase the debt. Then it’s pretty much impossible for anyone to raise taxes. So basically they rushed to cut taxes.
      Cutting Medicare and Medicaid wouldn’t completely get rid of them and they gave us tax cuts so we can spend our money on healthcare. That’s basically the most basic thing about the right on this issue, they believe that people are better at spending their money than the government.
      I’m young? Really? You don’t understand politics and you let the left brainwash you by only listening to them yet I’m the young one?
      I don’t care about your opinion. You didn’t work for them. Those companies do not always give bonuses. Not every state has a 15$ minimum wage and they were not going to do that you idiot. What about them hiring more people? Are you know going to claim that they were going to do it anyways?
      All of these comments are just pathetic excuses. You hate Trump and republicans therefore nothing they do could ever be positive in your eyes. It’s always bad or neutral. You’re nothing but a pathetic propagandist that does nothing but lie.

  2. What pisses me off , Social Security has never contributed to the national debt , congress has used Social Security funds as their “piggy bank” to resolve spending issues over the years , leaving “I.O.U’s” in their wake . If congress was to put back the money they’ve borrowed from Social Security Trust Funds , the program would be solvent . President Johnson gave us Medicare supported by congress back during his administration and myself and everyone else who uses Medicare , still has to pay into it , and what Medicare dosen’t pay for , the remainder comes out of our pockets again ! Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP establishment would love nothing better than to take away all that there is to give to their rich friends and corporations for their tax scam that they’ve passed . The problem is , they’ll have a huge fight with American seniors and myself . I’ve called & wrote my elected officials , they know where I stand …..

    • Perhaps we learned we shouldn’t trust the federal government with our money? Furthermore, this shows us we shouldn’t trust them to take even more of it for additional programs. Havent met a person yet who favors it who has experienced the VA.

  3. Well, who didn’t know this would happen. Yes, many of my generation I’m ashamed to say supported Dump. IDK WTF happened to their ideals & morals most of us had in the 60s & 70s when we fought for civil rights, women’s rights & to get America out of Vietnam. AARP who backed Dump in the election is now having 2nd thoughts on the matter with Medicare & SS poised to be gutted. Dumb fucks….they helped to put us into the position we are in now. Just remember….not all seniors voted for Dump. There are many of educated & intelligent seniors who could see Dump & the ratpubliklans for what they are & didn’t vote for them.

  4. Listen to Ryan again. He said welfare programs. This it begins. Purposeful mislead of the base. Social security and Medicare are not welfare programs. We own them because we pay for them. These guys are literally trying to steal your life.

  5. America spends like a trillion dollars on military every year and has spent tens of trillions of dollars on needless wars, but it just doesn’t have the money to take care of the elderly and the disabled. What a disgrace! Ironically they also like to criticize Kim Jong-un for starving his people to develop nuclear weapons. Are they projecting or what?

  6. Let those bastards live on Medicare and Social Security for a year hell even 6 months. Then see how they feel about it

  7. Donny, you said yourself the “tax reform” should be called “tax cut”.
    Only fair to do the same to “welfare reform”. Just call it, what it really is: *”Welfare CUTS”*

  8. Welfare? Entitlement? I paid for my Social security. I paid for my Medicare.
    Able bodied? Older people are not lazy bums just disincentivized to work.
    Take away all the money Ryan has received for his vote. Put him on the street, let him get a job.

    • Haha, it’s scary because I was thinking the same thing. Trump, Ryan, Spicy, Huckabee, pretty much all of the current Republican party – Their appearances resemble the wearing-your-skin-like-a-coat alien from Men in Black. If they all turned out to be Human hating lizard-men from another planet, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least.
