Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) discussed the war on poverty on Greta Van Susteren’s “On The Record” show on Fox News Channel Thursday.

Ryan, the chair of the House Budget Committee, unveiled his new plan on the show. “We’re in the 50th anniversary in the war on poverty, and we are not winning it,” said Ryan. “We reformed welfare in 1996, and it was very successful: work requirements, time limits, local control, experimentation in our states. That was one program. There are 92 other programs that have not been reformed like that.”
