Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

WTF? Paul Ryan is a genius.

Paul Ryan - "We have to show our ideas are better at fighting poverty, how our ideas are better at solving healthcare, how our ideas are better at solving the problems people are experiencing in their daily lives," the Wisconsin congressman told NBC's "Meet the Press" program.

-----------

This is brilliant.

They have to show how their ideas, in total contrast to reality, are better for poverty and healthcare. They just need to show how blocking every attempt at solving America's problems is good for America.

Genius. Absolute genius. I love this guy.

15. Well in all fairness they do think this is the better idea

They just have to convince those who are pissed on that it's good for them. No biggie.

A kind of anti-fan club or something.

10. Ryan is an evil jerk, but here's the thing....

 

It's easy to say that our ideas are better, but in truth we don't have any ideas or proposals. Our leaders aren't talking about how to fight poverty, they are proposing austerity and cuts to social security. Our leaders don't have a plan to address healthcare costs, their solution was to simply force people to buy insurance they cannot afford. Our solution to jobs was (and is) to ship the overseas. I would say I want to see less talk and more action, but we aren't even bothering with the talk.

So yeah, knock Ryan all you like, the guy is as evil as they come, but the guy is out there doing his job and fighting for the people who sent him to Washington. And it comes down to this:

People want leadership and we are not providing it. Republicans are the party of NO, we are the party of I DON'T KNOW. And in the absence of leadership from us, the people are going to look to whoever is offering answers. Right now, incredibly, that's Ryan.

12. Are you Serious!

We don't have any ideas or proposals? We have no jobs plans...sure, we Democrats do...However the GOP will not let anything pass congress. Our leaders don't have a plan to address health care costs? What planet do you live on and what party do you support. Really! Read the links below...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patient_Protection_and_Affordable_Care_Act

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/09/08/fact-sheet-american-jobs-act

http://thepoliticalcarnival.net/2012/02/03/the-new-bikini-graph-struts-its-obama-job-creation-stuff/

The Only party that is preaching to the choir about austerity is the GOP! You are saying, okay let me wrap my mind around this, that Paul Ryan is the one that is giving us the answers. This is the man that wants to cut social security,medicare and medicaid. He wants the poor to pay more than the one percent. The man that honors a fetuses life more than a Womans!

Are you fucking Serious!

14. Respectfully, I believe you misunderstood my answer (probably my fault)

 

First, Ryan is absolutely offering solutions. The solutions he is suggesting might be insane, but he's out there fighting for them. And that, my friend, is a fact. Paul Ryan is as passionate about spreading his gospel as any revival tent minister.

Ryan has a PLAN. Ryan has lots of plans. He's going to fix poverty, add jobs, eliminate the deficits, attack the debt, save grandma, cripples will walk and the blind will see. Praise Jesus! He's got plans, and he is out there every day selling them to the American people. He's fighting for those plans, he's a believer and he wants you to believe to.

And our plans?

11. What ideas?

Other than tax cuts and deregulation the GOP has no ideas.

13. So, put your ideas and proposals out there

and ask Republican leadership to agree with you or not.

1) Privatize Medicare
2) Privatize Social Security
3) Upper-Income Tax Cuts that will hopefully trickle down to the masses.
4) Slash environmental protections
5) Slash business regulations


let's see how they play in public

18. In other words, find a way to run the scam

So the idiot Joe's and Jane's think it's a box of sunshine & roses rather than the bullshit sandwich it really is.

19. Damaged Goods

I'm starting to wonder if the majority of the P.O.E. ("party of extremism" aka GOP)has a rogue protein in their collective brain that causes them to think the way they do. Freaking amazing.

20. Kenosha

We may be moving to the Kenosha, WI area in a couple of years. I certainly hope Ryan is gone by then or he would be our congressperson...
