House budget committee chairman Paul Ryan has come under fire from Democrats over comments he made Wednesday while discussing the problems of fatherlessness, poverty, and unemployment in America's inner cities. During an appearance on Bill Bennett's radio program, Ryan said that the government had created a "poverty trap" by creating "incentives not to work and to stay where you are, that’s not what we want in society."
