Paul Ryan resurrects $716 billion in Medicare cuts in new budget

Those $716 billion in Medicare cuts in Obamacare that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan lied about all through the campaign? The $716 billion that were in both of Paul Ryan's budget proposals? They're back, in Ryan's next budget proposal.

Ryan, the House Budget Committee Chairman, had preserved Obama’s Medicare cuts in two consecutive budget proposals that repealed the rest of the Affordable Care Act. Ryan is now back at work crafting his next budget, and Republicans on his committee say the $716 billion in Medicare cuts will likely survive.

Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.) said the $716 billion cut is part of the committee’s over-arching plan to save and reform Medicare. He said he doesn’t expect Ryan to back away from any part of that goal just because Romney was on a different page.


It's as if Ryan was never complicit in the false attacks by Romney. And as if Romney never existed. What's more, Woodall now says that this is a "sound proposal." Hypocrites? Of course.

3. Paul Ryan has been exposed. He's mediocre at best and

at worst, a complete joke. How did this asshole fly under our radar for so long in Wisconsin. Well, he's young and somewhat well connected here, and gerrymandering.

4. He's as dumb as Palin! Truly.

Anyone that would base their life on a novel written by a 2nd rate novelist is either a Scientologist or Paul Ryan. LOL!

6. Yeah, they can click their heels together and repeat that over and over.

That'll keep the deluded busy for a while.
