Paul Ryan, proving once again that he neither understands governance nor social responsibility.
Privatization of public services only helps the people who own the companies that end up running the public service, unless the government steps in and subsidized or guarantees the business. In the first case the public loses services when the price tag gets too high for the majority to continue to access them. In the second, the business owner gets fat on the government continuing to bear the risk of running the business, and the public loses access to the services much more slowly, but eventually the end result is the same because public service is not a valid corporate business model.
