PAUL RYAN OFFERS WEEKEND READING
It is a publication that has been six months in the making. House Speaker Paul Ryan has shepherded a significant new report titled “A Better Way: Our Vision for a Confident America” into the public arena.
“Our nation is on the wrong path. We can complain about it, but that won’t change things. To get America back on track, we have to raise our gaze. We have to go bold. That’s what ‘A Better Way’ is about. It is a full slate of ideas to address some of the biggest challenges of our time. It is our vision for a confident America, at home and abroad,” the preface reads.
A product of a task force of Republican heavyweights, the report addresses poverty, national security, the economy, health care, tax reform, and perhaps most importantly, a return to the Constitution.
“Just as the size of government has grown, so has its arrogance. Washington spends money it isn’t authorized to spend. It takes power it isn’t given. It ignores laws it is required to execute. It doesn’t listen, and it certainly doesn’t care to learn. The Founders insisted on a separation of powers to protect our constitutional liberties. But over time, especially in recent decades, the executive branch has collected more power for itself, enabled by a judiciary that defers to the bureaucracy and a Congress that has yielded some of its most fundamental duties,” the section declares.
