Ryan insisted that liberals were only offering people “a full stomach and an empty soul.”
He then told a story of a “young boy from a very poor family” who received free lunches at school “from a government program.”
“He didn’t want a free lunch,” Ryan insisted. “He wanted his own lunch, one in a brown paper bag, just like the other kids.”
“He wanted one, he said, because he knew a kid with a brown paper bag had someone who cared for him. This is what the left does not understand.”Hmmm. So, the kid's "very poor family" must not love him because they chose to take part in a school lunch program... because they couldn't afford otherwise? Ryan's solution: let's take the kid's "free" lunch away! Maybe discontinue mom or dad's unemployment benefits, too! Then the kids will have an empty soul and an empty stomach! Incentives!
