    Asked if these admissions might make it tougher for Republicans to maintain control of the House, Ryan responded, “Nah. Voters know that rich people are better than them. Look how happy they’ve been to let rich corporations take their jobs and send them to Asia. I’d bet that if David Koch stopped a random guy in the street and asked for his pants, the guy would give them to him…right there, in broad daylight. Hell, I’d bet the guy would give him his first-born child. Besides, rich people own all the media, so we’ll be able to make shit smell like roses to pretty much everyone who watches the news.”

    As to whether consumers losing their buying power is a concern to Republicans, Ryan responded, “Not really. We only have about 300 million people. Who cares if Americans can’t afford anything. Why do you think we’re trying to raise the living standards in China and India? There are like two and a half billion people to buy our stuff there.”
