Obama Calls GOP Budget ‘Social Darwinism’
President Barack Obama criticized House Republicans and Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for the GOP budget proposal that the President likened to Social Darwinism.
“It’s nothing but thinly veiled Social Darwinism. It’s antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility for everyone who’s willing to work for it, a place where prosperity doesn’t trickle down from the top, but grows outward from the heart of the middle class.”
The President also called the budget a “Trojan horse” that would be used to force radical change in the United States.
Ryan’s budget passed in the House last Thursday in a 228-191 party-line vote, setting the stage for an election-year battle with Democrats on spending and the debt. The budget aims to cut $5 trillion more than Obama’s budget proposal and would create a “premium support” option for future Medicare recipients.
