Rep. Paul Ryan “took an unmistakable shot” at Mitt Romney’s assertion during the presidential campaign that 47% of Americans would never vote Republican because they are too dependent on government, Politico reports.
“Both parties tend to divide Americans into ‘our voters’ and ‘their voters,’ said Ryan. “Republicans must steer far clear of that trap. We must speak to the aspirations and anxieties of every American. I believe we can turn on the engines of upward mobility so that no one is left out from the promise of America.”
