GOP Rep. Paul Ryan Says "Current Regime Running Washington" Trying to Make America a "Social Welfare State" - Video 4/15/10
Here is video of GOP Rep. Paul Ryan on this "Tax Day," criticizing tax increases being put forward by President Obama's Administration, which he described as a "regime."
"They are putting through an agenda in this country to replace the American idea, the values and principles that made this country so exceptional with more of a European, cradle-to-grave style social welfare state. And they are now very comfortable with idea of building spending so high, that they will believe the only alternative is to tax our way out of this problem, and give us a new era where our prosperity will be a thing of the past. . . .
We want the 21st century to be another great American Century. We do not want to join the list of other mediocre countries in the world. But when you've already passed $670 billion in new tax increases into law, and you're planning a whole host of other ones, I don't know how else to conclude but that is the aim and the goal of the current regime running Washington."
Amen to Paul Ryan! What a bright light he is for the Republican Party.
