Quickie: Paul Ryan collected Social Security benefits as a teen


Today's Quickie/Hypocridiot Moment:

Look who benefited from a socialist program:

One day as a 16 year old, Ryan came upon the lifeless body of his father. Paul Ryan, Sr. had died of a heart attack at age 55, leaving the Janesville Craig High School 10th grader, his three older brothers and sisters and his mother alone. It was Paul who told the family of his father’s death.

With his father’s passing, young Paul collected Social Security benefits until age 18, which he put away for college. To make ends meet, Paul’s mother returned to school to study interior design. His siblings were off at college. Ryan remembers this difficult time bringing him and his mother closer.

Thanks to Marxist commie gay Social Security, Paul Ryan got a college education, an accomplishment that is oddly frowned up on by conservatives and tea baggers as being "elitist" these days.

That was today's Quickie. Was it good for you?

    You need to follow the money. I would bet most of his large donations come from the would be recepients of a privatized social security the financial industry. Social security is not in crisis and can be easily fixed. Social security contributions are taken are taken from an annual salary up to about one hundred seven thousand, increase that up to a higher cap and social security will be fixed

    most republicans will take all they can get from they're government, like the best health insurance and all congressional perks.
    doesn't mean they want the rest of us to have these things.

  • Another case of the Conservative Hypocridiocy at work.

  • Hey guess who else got social security? Ayn Rand (under her husband's name O'Connor): http://www.patiastephens.com/2010/12/05/ayn-rand-received-social-security-medicare/
