Paul Ryan: Ayn Rand Is The Reason I Got Into Politics

Paul Ryan has credited novelist-philosopher Ayn Rand as the reason he got into public service.

Now remember, this is the lady that Paul Ryan said made him get into politics. She is also a Tea Party favorite with her book Atlas Shrugged. 
Senator Rand Paul (Ron Paul's son) “I am a fan of Ayn Rand and I’ve read all her novels.”

Rush Limbaugh – “The brilliant writer and novelist, Ayn Rand, has written about this. Let me give you a couple quotes from Ayn Rand on this.”

Paul Ryan's father died when Paul was only 16. Using the Social Security survivors benefits he received until his 18th birthday, he paid for his education at Miami University in Ohio, where he completed a bachelor's degree in economics and political science in 1992.
So using social safety nets is okay for him but not for others?
