Another Fine Quote

From Paul Ryan's rebuttal:

“Our nation is approaching a tipping point. We are at a moment, where if government’s growth is left unchecked and unchallenged, America’s best century will be considered our past century. This is a future in which we will transform our social safety net into a hammock, which lulls able-bodied people into lives of complacency and dependency. Depending on bureaucracy to foster innovation, competitiveness, and wise consumer choices has never worked – and it won’t work now. We need to chart a new course.”

Uh, Hello? What was the 50's and the 60's if it was not a bureaucracy set up to foster innovation, competitiveness, and informed consumer choices? The "best century" he's talking about was taken from the great inequality of the roaring twenties to the relative equality of the post war period by taxing the wealthy and stimulating the economy with three great projects: Defeating Hitler, the Marshall Plan, and The Space Race.
