Lee was responding to comments made by Ryan Wednesday morning to Right-wing radio host Bill Bennett. Citing an academic who previously argued that poverty is largely the result of low IQ and race, Ryan told Bennet that poverty in America is the product of a “tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work…So there’s a real culture problem here,” Ryan continued, “that has to be dealt with.”

Lee, who serves on the powerful House Budget Committee with Ryan, told Roland Martin the comments were not only statistically inaccurate but deeply offensive.
