How many times will we have to be reminded of how right Mitt Romney was? Well, yesterday was one of those times, when Romney's hand-picked running mate took to the stage at the American Enterprise Institute to offer his agenda for reducing poverty in America. Simply put, there is no smarter Republican on the scene today, not a single legislator who understands root causes and conservative solutions, no one better than Paul Ryan.
Yuval Levin has a nice piece at National Review on what he calls Ryan's "Mobility Agenda". Here is a link to the plan itself--well worth some time in the hammock this weekend to review. And here's a video of the speech he gave at AEI.
Spend some time familiarizing yourself with these points. Remember that Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, and other Republicans are saying many of these same things. Arm yourself with the facts so that the next time a whiny liberal says that Republicans don't have serious policy prescriptions, you can beg to differ.
