“I have made to secret of my contempt of the politics of Speaker Ryan and his like minded band of RINOs in the House and Senate. Just as Ryan has made no secret about his disdain for the national interest, our working families, our middle class. Ryan’s chief appeal to his corporatist masters seems to be his puppyish eagerness to please the power brokers of the establishment and the money marauders who infest K Street, and his passionate pursuit of open borders and cheap illegal immigrant labor. He of course was no fan of defined benefit programs, you know, pensions, which he saw as an awful, terrible unfair burden on corporate America’s international competitiveness. Ryan embraced 401(k)s and didn’t blink at the yawning gap in the value of pensions versus 401(k)s. Nor was Ryan a fan of those employer health care benefits for employees.”
