Exclusive: Paul Ryan’s Fight Against Poverty

MacIver News Service | March 26, 2014

[Racine, Wisc…] Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) recently released the House Budget Committee report titled ‘The War on Poverty: 50 Years Later.’ The report takes an in depth look at dozens of government programs aimed at fighting poverty. However, even after trillions of tax dollars have been spent to solve the problem, the poverty rate has only inched lower. Ryan now hopes to find out why the programs are not working, and what can actually be done to combat poverty in America. During a recent town hall meeting in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, Ryan spoke with the MacIver Institute in an exclusive interview about the report.
