Obama Calls ‘Paul Ryan’ GOP Budget ‘Thinly Veiled Social Darwinism’, But There’s Nothing ‘Veiled’ About It

Speaking at an Associated Press luncheon on Tuesday, President Obama called Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) Republican budget plan “thinly veiled social Darwinism.” The president was referring to the budget’s massive tax cuts for the rich and steep cuts to programs for the poor. The GOP budget is nothing more than trickle-down economic theory, a religion to Republicans. It’s also the same economic theory that has for 30 years failed to produce even a trace of the “trickle down” promised.
