BREAKING: @SpeakerRyan tells House Rs he is NOT rescinding @realDonaldTrump endorsement for now, but won't campaign with him either Public policy has not really been at the center of the 2016 campaign, but under the heading of A Better Way, Ryan and his House GOP leadership team have hammered out a policy agenda that they expect a Trump administration would sign into law.
Its centerpiece is a large tax cut whose benefits would almost entirely accrue to the wealthiest Americans.
It is financed through a series of cutbacks to the social welfare state, with low-income Americans receiving less assistance in buying health care services, food, and other such things.
This agenda is distinct from Trump’s main agenda of deportations, police impunity, and trade protectionism but broadly compatible with it, and Trump has, at various times, signaled his alignment with Ryan’s priorities.
Hillary Clinton, by contrast, would not really go along with any of Ryan’s main Better Way ideas.
