How Paul Ryan Became Wealthy................. WIFE MONEY
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Paul Ryan
Ryan's real money comes from steep investments in his wife's family's businesses:
Ryan's wife is an heiress to a family that is very powerful in the Oklahoma area. After getting married, Ryan's net worth soared compared to his bachelor days.
One investment he and his wife share is a 10% stake in the Blondie & Brownie gravel company. He and his wife made between $5,000 and $15,000 from that investment in 2009, and the stake was most recently estimated to be worth between $100,000 and $250,000.
This is why Paul Ryan dislikes poor people: They don't have the good sense to marry rich like he did.
To be fair, lots of politicians have wife money, from John Kerry to John McCain.
I believe Bob Dole and Bill Clinton have wife money, too.
I've just never seen someone so rich be so contemptuous of poor people as Paul Ryan. He has achieved a higher level of hate. A transcendent hate that loathes the 23% of American children living in poverty so much that he can't wait to cut their food stamps.
Haters gonna hate.
Why rich people hate is still lost on me. Why, Paul Ryan, why?
