Yuck, US politics. Yick yuck yick. One guy with two fists playing rock paper scissors against another guy who doesn't believe in rocks, paper or scissors.

oh man - ryan's quotes are _hilarious_.

Quote:
“If you can scare seniors into thinking that their current benefits are being affected, that's going to have an effect,” Ryan said. “And that is exactly what took place here. So yes, it's demagoguery. It's scaring seniors.”


in other words - exactly what the republicans did in fighting health care reform. and now, when it comes back to bite them, it's "demagoguery".

oh republicans - if you didn't have your hypocrisy, what _would_ you have for character?

Funny you should mention that, I got the itch to see what he had to say back during the Healthcare Reform fight.
Found this piece in Feb 2010's Time:
Quote:
In Baltimore, the House Republicans seemed hurt that the President wasn't listening to their "new" ideas. Unfortunately, most of these have the sophistication of policy seminars run by high school Libertarian clubs. One of their leading intellectual lights, Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, has offered a Medicare reform proposal that should kill any chance he has of winning higher office: he would privatize Medicare and deliver unto the elderly vouchers that would gradually lose much of their value. This would save a boatload of money, of course ... but one wonders whether the party that gave the world "death panels" would stand behind such an all-out assault on the financial security of the nation's most devout voters.

Let's hope they stand behind it long enough to enrage more people.
