    I'll go with 'missing any pertinent details,' like most Outis posts.

  • Paul Ryan's "War On Poverty" report: misunderstanding or misrepresentation?

    http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Articl...Their-Research

    "Today, the poverty rate is stuck at 15 percent—the highest in a generation,” Ryan noted in the report. “And the trends are not encouraging. Federal programs are not only failing to address the problem. They are also in some significant respects making it worse. Changes are clearly necessary, and the first step is to evaluate what the federal government is doing right now."

    However, several economists and social scientists contacted on Monday had reactions ranging from bemusement to anger at Ryan’s report, claiming that he either misunderstood or misrepresented their research.


    Considering that the Fiscal Times has been pretty adamant about conservative economic principles, their willingness to challenge Ryan on this issue is telling.
