Romney's Embrace Of The Ryan Budget Makes Him Particularly Dangerous.

The fact the Romney embraces the Ryan budget makes him particularly dangers because of his stand on Medicare. The
Ryan budget as we know would pretty much end domestic spending as we know it. And it would push probably millions into deep poverty and result in legions of hungry and destitute people.

There are two problems with what is going on with this budget. One must remember that it is a first draft and could be made even more draconian with more severe austerity. Teabaggers say the Ryan has not gone far enough and he is too "liberal". Secondly is something Romney supposedly said early in the primary process. He reportedly said that he favored vouchers for all Medicare recipients. That he supported scrapping the 55 rule and giving coupons on all seniors presently on MEDICARE.

There is no telling what these guys would do. You know in your heart that they favor ending Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security abruptly if they could get away with it. Of course they won't tell you that openly.
