From the last Morning Jolt of the week:
A Side of Paul Ryan You Probably Haven’t Seen Before
You probably already know our new Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan. What you don’t know is his work with heroin addicts.
“You meet a lot of people who play the part,” says Jubal Garcia, pastor and program director at Outcry in the Barrio, a faith-based Christian outreach organization that ministers to and provides rehabilitation services for people struggling with addiction. “Like, ah, okay, photo-op, let’s go get this picture. He was — no. Paul was just genuine, man. You could feel his compassion for people. You could see he really genuinely cares about people. It’s not just a job for him. It’s a passion for him.”
The guy who liberals depicted throwing granny off the cliff . . . goes into drug treatment centers, touches the scars from the “track marks” of heroin addicts, and prays with and for them.
Robert L. Woodson, founder and president of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise, concludes, “The comment [from my team] I get about Paul is, ‘I trust him.’”
