Speaker of the House Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) is pushing hard to get another misguided and harmful tax cut passed in the next few months. For some reason he thinks this will fire up the Republican base of voters and will make it more likely that Republican candidates will win elections this year.
The sad fact is regardless the GOP's words that they heeded the voters' message, they are plotting the same course with the same players the voters rejected two weeks ago.
Ryan's request for stimulus money proves he knows that the path to prosperity is not severe austerity measures and tax cuts for the wealthy, but government infusion of cash into the economy.
It is Ayn Rand's immoral ideology that informs the character of Republican philosophy and spells doom for all but the wealthiest Americans.
