Ryan Still Channeling Ayn Rand Despite Pretending To Disavow Her Views


From this Friday's The Young Turks, Paul Ryan can pretend to run from his hero Ayn Rand, but he can't hide -- Paul Ryan may have broken up with Ayn Rand, but their extreme ideas sound awfully similar:

Cenk goes way back into the philosophy of Ayn Rand, “possible sociopath and ideological godmother of the Republican Party.” Though Paul Ryan has attempted to disavow his admiration for Rand, her extreme ideas seem to match up with the “values” that he and many on the right wing have tried to legislate through budget cuts. Her only mistake in their eyes? Atheism.
