What's Paul Ryan's Grand Vision for a Post-Trump GOP? Cutting Social Security and Enacting Carbon Taxes

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan is saying that Donald Trump is over, and it is time for the Republican Party to return to normal.

And what is his vision for the GOP? Cutting Social Security benefits that are supported by an overwhelming majority of Americans, and pitching a crippling carbon tax for global warming.

Ryan spoke to Real Clear Politics where he claimed that entitlement reform, his preferred euphemism for cutting social security, is “not as toxic as it used to be.”

The retired Wisconsin Republican stated “we think our country is pretty ugly and divided now, politically speaking,” but the current situation “will pale in comparison to what it will look like if we don’t get ahead of our fiscal problems.”
