Ryan’s socialist strawman


All I can say is: What is the man talking about? Under Obama, the stock market has doubled; corporate profits have reached record highs; nearly all the benefits of the recovery have been reaped by the top 1 percent; Democrats modeled their health reform on Mitt Romney’s sensible Republican design; and the share of income going to labor, as opposed to capital, has reached all-time lows. If this is how capitalists fare under a “socialist,”you’d think they’d be cheering for more. Just reflecting on those facts versus the fictional dystopia Ryan wants as his foil shows once more how far removed Republican rhetoric is from anything resembling reality.
