Paul Ryan, Now and Then

"No one is suggesting that what we call our earned entitlements -- entitlements you pay for, like payroll taxes for Medicare and Social Security -- are putting you in a 'taker' category. No one would suggest that whatsoever."

-- Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), criticizing President Obama's inaugural speech on Laura Ingraham's radio show today.

"Right now about 60 percent of the American people get more benefits in dollar value from the federal government than they pay back in taxes. So we're going to a majority of takers versus makers."

-- Ryan, on Washington Watch in June 2010.
