1. He speaks of " morality" yet his plan would leave seniors withut any health coverage. What morality
leaves our seniors choosing between catfood and medicine?

4. But that is Ayn Rand's version of morality.
And I am not being sarcastic...it really is....if you have any doubts read her "The Virtues of Selfishness" in which she states that the goal is to rid the world of the evil altruism and that is her moral objective.
It is a philosophy geared to the sociopathic morality...which is to say none at all for poor or the powerless..

6. Yes indeed, to get the truth out about Paul Ryan's worship of Ayn Rand is sorely needed.
We simply cannot afford an insane fascistic society proposed by this newest element in US
politics. The Tea Baggers are ripe for accepting anti-government blatant selfish-capitalistic garbage. Could be our 'Roman' downfall.
