    Commentary: A middle-class safety net
    Spending on the major safety-net programs, including food stamps, nearly quadrupled between 1970 and 2010, but there have been winners and losers during that growth. Liberals are shocked (shocked!) that Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and his co-partisans would...

  • Rekha Basu: While America moves forward, Iowa Republicans step backward

    Paul Ryan isn't a racist, and the Democrats know it [Commentary]
    Rep. Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican, recently pointed out that many anti-poverty programs create disincentives to work. Appearing on Bill Bennett's national radio show, the 2012 GOP nominee for vice president proceeded to bemoan a "tailspin of...
  • Medicare reform redux: How Ryan's new plan squeezes seniors

    (The opinions expressed here are those of the author, a columnist for Reuters.) CHICAGO (Reuters) - Imagine a Medicare reform plan that boosts your premiums 50 percent. If you like your doctor, you won't be able to keep her. The wealthy will subsidize...
  • Paul Ryan rehashes an old Social Security lie--at your expense

    There should be a rule--or even a law--that politicians who propose "fixes" to Social Security should at least show they know something about the program. By that standard, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., would flunk. What's worse,...
