Paul Ryan's idea of "upward mobility" sounds good. He's got conviction and he means well. A couple of problems with his thoughts. Obama didn't cause the recession. The stimulus was spent to keep us out of depression. It wasn't an "economic policy." It was an answer in a crisis. Also, Ryan's philosophy is nothing new. It's the standard republican philosophy.
Barney Frank points out the hypocrisy of republicans on "big government." Paul Ryan gets smug.
