Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and other House Republicans unveiled the party’s “A Better Way to Fight Poverty” proposal at House of Help City Of Hope, a residential treatment facility in the Anacostia neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Their proposals to reform welfare, food, and housing would include work requirements and increasing efficiency by allowing states to make more decisions. The event would be the first of a series of policy proposals for the Republican “A Better Way” program that would also cover tax reform, national security, health care, cutting regulations, and restoring constitutional authority. In response to a reporter’s question, Speaker Ryan disavowed comments by presumptive 2016 Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump about Judge Gonzalo Curiel, born in Indiana of Mexican parentage, saying they were the “textbook definition of a racist comment.” close
