Via The Hill:
Paul Ryan said that 30 percent of Americans prefer a “welfare state” and eventually more of the country could prefer getting more from government than they pay for.
The remarks, published by The Huffington Post on Tuesday, came during a keynote speech at The American Spectator’s 2011 Robert L Bartley Gala Dinner in November.
“Seventy percent of Americans want the American dream. They believe in the American idea. Only 30 percent want their welfare state,” Ryan said. “Before too long, we could become a society where the net majority of Americans are takers, not makers.”
