Tennessee Republicans are trying to get the USA to give haslem and ramsey the medicare money so they can divide it as they see fit.

Folks this gang of republican thugs in Nashville are out to kill off the midle class,they want to hurt the women,old,sick,children,educat ion,jobs and labor,

In other words do away with the middle class in Tennessee,do away with the sick with no Dr or hospital care if they get there hands on medicare. We can't let this happen.. VOTE FOR ANY DEMOCRAT AND TAKE TENNESSEE BACK FROM ALL OF THE REPUBLICANS IN TENNESSEE.THESE PEOPLE ARE THE SAME AS THE ONES IN WASHINGTON,MAYBE WORSE,
Paul Ryan ask President Obama for Obama care money and gets he is running all over the USA telling lies about this program that has helped Millions and will help you also..
Elect Obama in 2012 to continue going forward not backwards as Romney wants all of us to do ,just more of the same old tired programs of Republicans ,no answers,no solutions,just more tax cuts for the very rich..and continue sending more Jobs Overseas for a larger profit.
“I don’t know what’s the bigger sin,” says Tom Perriello, a former Democratic congressman who championed health clinics as a supporter of the Affordable Care Act.“The hypocrisy of asking for funding from a program while seeking to repeal it, or that the Republicans have been so much more committed to hurting the president than to helping people that something as uncontroversial as funding for community health centers must be requested in secret.”
Perriello is now counselor for policy at the Center for American Progress, where I previously worked as a political blogger.
An outline of the health reform “replacement” legislation advanced by Mitt Romney and Ryan, mostly centered on proposals to gut state and federal health insurance regulations by allowing insurance providers to sell coverage across state lines, makes no mention of health clinics.
In addition to undercutting his political message about health reform, the letter may also add to an emerging narrative that Ryan has a double standard when it comes to critiquing major Obama policy achievements. Shortly after Romney announced that Ryan would be joining him on the Republican ticket this year, the Boston Globe revisited a story showing how Ryan quietly lobbied the Obama administration for stimulus grants. Ryan voted against the proposal and denounced it to the press without disclosing his requests for stimulus cash.
Ryan first denied responsibility for the stimulus grant requests, but later confessed that his office had sent the letters.
Republicans have praised Ryan for his willingness to embrace unpopular cuts to government programs and for being a “consistent conservative.” The fact that Ryan has privately pleaded with the Obama administration for government grants from the president’s signature policy accomplishments, however, could unravel that conceit.
UPDATE: Brendan Buck, a spokesperson for the Mitt Romney campaign, responded to this story by claiming that this "grant program was created by President Bush, not Obamacare. This... type of misinformation is what you get from gotcha reporting on liberal blogs." Ryan's letter directly requests money from the HRSA-11-017 New Access Points program announced in August of 2010. This New Access Points grant program that Ryan requested money from is funded fully by the Affordable Care Act, a fact made clear on multiple government websites.
