Quotation for Today: Is Mitt Romney A Paul Ryan Wannabe?

The quotation for today points the reader at the 'empathy gap' in the Romneyville Budget,also known as the Mitt Romney-embraced, Paul Ryan Republican Budget.
"Ryan, we’re told, is a nice guy. And maybe he is, to people he knows. But he evidently has no sense of or interest in the lives of those less fortunate."
Paul Krugman
Paul Krugman, Nobel Laureate (economics) and teacher, writes at his blog about the great empathy gap in Rep. Paul Ryan's budget, a budget that was enthusiastically embraced by Republican presidential wannabe, Mitt Romney.

The Romneyville/Ryan Budget is just another example of the Republicans' policies of Social Darwinism.  You can read about Social Darwinism here and here.
