An interview with Evva Pryror, a social worker and consultant to Miss Rand's law firm of Ernst, Cane, Gitlin and Winick verified that on Miss Rand's behalf she secured Rand's Social Security and Medicare payments which Ayn received under the name of Ann O'Connor (husband Frank O'Connor).
As Pryor said, "Doctors cost a lot more money than books earn and she could be totally wiped out" without the aid of these two government programs. Ayn took the bail out even though Ayn "despised government interference and felt that people should and could live independently... She didn't feel that an individual should take help."
But alas she did and said it was wrong for everyone else to do so.
Someone should ask Paul Ryan or Rand Paul about this -- but that would require, y'know, journalism.
Rand also is often alleged to have done the bump & grind with Alan Greenspan back in the day, though it may have been a more metaphorical handjob, while married -- one of her infidelities.
In short, Ayn Rand, was completely fucked up and a hypocrite.
Too bad she didn't live to see how profitable that was in modern Republicans.
