LIVE: Paul Ryan and Stephen Moore in a special Spectator symposium

By on 4.18.12 | 6:57AM

Have a little Paul Ryan with your coffee and cornflakes this morning.

The American Spectator is proud to partner with the Heritage Foundation to host a discussion on choice in public policy, featuring Rep. Ryan and Wall Street Journal editorial board member Stephen Moore.

Festivities will be streamed live on the Interwebs over at the Heritage event page. Please join us at 8:30 a.m. EST!

The discussion, moderated by our own R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., will focus on how conservatives can reinvigorate public programs by giving citizens a choice: the New Deal, or a better deal? As Ryan writes in the our forthcoming May issue:

It is so rare in American politics to arrive at a moment in which the debate revolves around the fundamental nature of American democracy and the social contract. But that is where we are.


The President's approach gives more power to unelected bureaucrats, takes more from hardworking taxpayers, and commits our great nation to a future of debt, doubt, and decline. This approach is proving unworkable—in our Congress, in our courts, and in our communities.


The contrast between the President’s approach and ours could not be clearer. We put our trust in citizens, not government. Our budget returns power to individuals, to families, and to communities.
