This Sums It Up
“As far as anyone can tell, Paul Ryan, the speaker of the House and the leader of what's left of the Republican establishment isn't racist or authoritarian. He is, however, doing all he can to make a racist authoritarian the most powerful man in the world. Why? Because then he could privatize Medicare and slash taxes on the wealthy.
”And that, in brief, tells you what has happened to the Republican Party, and to America.“
-- Paul Krugman, ”Who Broke Politics?" in The New York Times
