"Tonight, Ryan said American exceptionalism is grounded in the fact that most Americans believe that the worst off have a path to a better life."
Yep, the US is exceptional alright. You can vote, except if you're a minority, poor, elderly or any other class that might vote for Democrats. You can have a living wage job, except if you work for Walmart or just about any fast food chain. You can have health care except if you work for one of the many businesses that keep your hours under 30 hours in order to not have to offer you health care. Sure, those computerized scheduling systems are only about maximizing the number of workers to serve the customers - yep, right. You can get honest representation in congress except if you don't have thousands of dollars to buy your representatives and senators.
There is a lot our business "leaders" and congress do except actually help the majority of their constituents.
