Congressman Paul Ryan claims his views are in agreement with Catholic Social Teaching.
Nonsense.His "Bible" is the collection of writings from the Social Philosopher Ayn Rand  who is best known for her promotion of what she terms "the virtue of selfishness," Catholic social teaching certainly promotes the dignity of work but at the expense of basic living needs. Such cuts are grossly immoral and need condemnation from Catholic and other leaders.
