• • Ryan’s budget is road to plutocracy

Rand believed that people should look out only for themselves and to care about others was a sign of weakness. Rand also thought that it was moral for the wealthy not to pay taxes. Ryan’s budget plan sounds like he is following Rand’s philosophy to the letter.
