That's what Paul Ryan said when Republicans thought it was cool to be honest about their philosophy of selfishness. But, unfortunately, the campaign issue is now about religion so the narrative must change.
An urban legend? He threw Ayn Rand birthday parties.
Antithetical to his worldview? He credits her for getting into politics. His budgets slash "entitlement" programs to the bone while lowering taxes for the rich. Ayn Rand's economic philosophy is precisely his worldview.
So, how many of you Republicans are going to buy this nonsense? How many of you Republicans are going to pretend that Paul Ryan and your budgets aren't influenced by Randian economic philosophy? How many of you Republicans are going to call that dumb motherfucker out on his blatant hypocrisy?
