Paul Ryan stakes position in war on poverty

Together, they are preaching the values of self-responsibility and the importance of making work more lucrative and attractive than public assistance.

hmm..."making work more lucrative and attractive than public assistance". How is that going to work out? The Repubs fight every attempt to raise the minimum wage tooth and nail. So, the "solution" must be to cut public assistance below the starvation level, so working for minimum wages is "more attractive" than starving. Then they can use the money cut from public assistance to pay for another trickle down tax cut.
