Today on Fox News Sunday, Republican Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (WI-01) falsely claimed he wants to stop "subsidizing the wealthy" and "get the loopholes out" of our tax code.
In reality, Paul Ryan and House Republicans have repeatedly voted to protect tax breaks for the ultra wealthy and tax loopholes for Big Oil. In fact, Ryan himself authored a plan to give the ultra wealthy tax breaks and supported the creation of tax loopholes for some of his top contributors. Ryan and House Republicans are now opposed to ending these kind of tax breaks for the ultra wealthy in order to stop a payroll tax hike at the end of February.
