It could be simply a refusal to look at history. The Republicans have never done more than trim social programs. Why does he think they will do so now? Ryan’s budget was hit by the staffers at the USCCB for reducing programs, but it does hardly more that decreasing the rate of growth. The analogue is thr old lady who is $200,000 in debt but who refuses to stop using her credit card.
