Under Obama he Claims We Can't Afford Social Security and Medicare..

Last edited Sat Dec 28, 2013, 09:14 PM - Edit history (3)



Edit..

Paul Ryan lectures the pope

snip//

When 1.3 million Americans lose their unemployment benefits on Saturday, they can thank Rep. Paul Ryan. He took the lead in negotiating a bipartisan budget deal with Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, and on behalf of his party, held the line against continuing extended unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless.

Sure, a lot of Republicans share blame with Ryan. But he deserves extra-special (negative) credit for the deal, because he has lately had the audacity to depict himself as the new face of “compassionate conservatism,” insisting Republicans must pay attention to the problems of the poor. Friends say the man who once worshipped Ayn Rand now takes Pope Francis as his moral role model. Except he can’t help treating his new role model with arrogance and contempt.




More to the story..

3. So did Boehner and McConnell.

The GOP only cares about the deficit when a Democrat is in office.

to describe the garbage that posers like paul ryan spew out of their mouths to justify cutting Social Security and Medicare to help out their rich donors.

16. Lying Ryan is a partisan hack who is also very scary.

Why? Because about 25-30% of those who are voting buy whatever slop the rethugs barf up, and if he grows that in congress with poor voter turnout of dems in '14 and all the partisan voting district line drawing, in Congress he may have enough votes to at least bring about an Obama Veto. And in '16...?

Someone who would lie about his marathon performance would lie about anything. Ryan is a liar.

joe that said he was "in love with paul ryan" when he came out with some stupid shit about his own health plan or something? This was before he was mitt's chosen one.



The republicon party is full of Con men, women, and grifters. Some are just more adroit than others. They'd be in the sewer where they belong if it weren't for the US Mediawhore$ propping them up like cardboard cutouts.

36. Better believe that. I mean really believe it, not as just something sassy to say but truth.

There is no compromising. There will be no deals. Half way to them gets full wickedness. They won't be sated. They are devoid of good ideas. They are virtually always wrong.
