A Republican vision for America – ‘Paul Ryan lectures the pope’
‘The Catholic conservative who insists he cares about the poor says Pope Francis doesn’t understand capitalism’.
“What I love about the pope is he is triggering the exact kind of dialogue we ought to be having,” Ryan told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “People need to get involved in their communities to make a difference, to fix problems soul to soul.”
Ah Yes. The Republican ‘real’ capitalism.
“The guy is from Argentina, they haven’t had real capitalism in Argentina,” Ryan said (referring to the pope as “the guy” is a nice folksy touch.) “They have crony capitalism in Argentina. They don’t have a true free enterprise system.”

‘Trickle-Down Economics and Broken Promises’
‘How Inequality Is Holding Back Our Economy’
” Trickle-down economics is severely flawed; for decades, its associated economic policies have generated high levels of inequality, justifying that inequality with faulty logic, and most likely, dampened levels of economic growth. In contrast, middle-out policies, which combat inequality and strengthen the middle class through a progressive economic agenda, have the promise to bring about a new era of shared prosperity in our nation”.
