After speaking at the 2011 Faith and Freedom Conference, Republican Rep. Paul Ryan refused to answer questions regarding why he based his 2012 federal budget proposal on the extreme ideology of Ayn Rand, rather than the Biblical principles of economic justice. What’s more, Rep. Ryan then flees the Bible offered to him by the 7000 members of Faithful America who signed a petition asking Rep. Ryan the same question the young man in this video asked him.

Here’s the video:

I think it’s abundantly clear by now that Paul Ryan – who by the way won’t ever have to worry about his health care when he retires, thanks to his sweet Congressional pension and health care benefits upon retirement – doesn’t care about the struggles average American seniors will face when given a voucher that only covers a portion of the health insurance premiums they’re forced to haggle over with insurance companies that are more concerned with healthy financial bottom lines than they are with the well-being of their customers.

Shame on Paul Ryan.

    Let’s not forget, either, that Mr. Objectivist got to where he is in life in some part due to the SS survivor’s benefits he received as a teenager, which he used to go to college.

    But hey, he got his, Jack.

    This is proof of nothing. What in the world does this kid mean… “instead of the principles of the Bible?” Unless of course this kid is suggesting we have a jubilee every seven years and return all property to it’s original owner! The kid baited him in and tried to side swipe him… I don’t have any respect for this kind of tactic. BTW – I just learned about Paul Ryan and am not a supporter of his. I think this video is just STUPID!
