Paul Ryan kicks off effort to help people he's already kicked

Paul Ryan will showcase himself with a new anti-poverty organization.

What's next: Scott Walker starts Wisconsin Friends of Rail Transit? 

Remember, Ryan is the guy who spent years in Congress using the tax code to widen the gulf between the wealthy and everyone else,

promoted cuts to anti-poverty programs, said inner-city people needed to be taught good character and discipline, calculated that 30% of Americans want a welfare state and told an interviewer that entire generations of urban men who didn't even think about working were responsible for their own destitution: 
Paul Ryan Claims Black Men Are Lazy And The Cause Of Poverty In This Country
During the interview, Ryan used thinly-veiled ‘code’ language to claim that black men do not want to work and are satisfied with being poor. He also stated that anti-poverty programs create a culture of laziness and that what we really need is for affluent white people from the suburbs to spend more of their time mentoring those in the inner-city...
We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work, and so there is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with…you need to get involved, you need to get involved yourself, whether through a good mentor program or some religious charity, whatever it is to make a difference. And that’s how we resuscitate our culture.”

Ryan, of course, indulges the whopping conceit that he "worked" while he dis-served the state and the nation as a House member.
A more useless clot cannot be found.
Ryan is the same lazy liar who walked in to a soup kitchen that was closing down, barged into the kitchen, and pretended to wash already-clean dishes while his wife and kids "dried" them. This was done so he could be photographed "doing charitable work."
It was bad enough that he and his wife thought nothing of creating such a lie, but he roped his kids into it.
What message did he send to those kids? That the appearance of doing good, the appearance of public service, is all that matters?
What a monster.
