More about that hammock…
Representative Paul Ryan, who fears that “we will transform our social safety net into a hammock, which lulls able-bodied people into lives of complacency and dependency,” suffered the tragic loss of his father when young Ryan was 16 years old. The presumably able-bodied Ryan used his father’s Social Security benefits to attend college.
Ryan’s literary hero, Atlas Shrugged author Ayn Rand, wrote interminable diatribes against the evils of collectivism and statism while collecting Social Security checks.
It’s not the heat; it’s the hypocrisy.
