Paul Ryan Social Security Plan Calls For Private Accounts (VIDEO)
After you see this and Medicare plans you should be convinced that he is a 1% flunkie.
Again, do you hate Obama more than you like your SS and Medicare?
Paul Ryan is no different than most Wealthy people, he thinks the poor/middle classes should scramble for crumbs.
The 1%'s wealth comes from Unearned Income (lower tax rate) and NOT paying good wages with benefits. Can you imagine America without SS and Medicare; the amount of poverty and suffering? Just look at other countries that don't take out/manage some sort of retirement/healthcare for the aging.
Is this the American Way Paul Ryan is so in favor of? Are you ready to back that?

Actually, he voted for TARP, bailouts, no child left behind and debt ceiling increases. Another false conservative that fits right in with Mitt. This country is doomed if we have to choose from these clowns that the 2 parties have chosen for us.

Take away Paul Ryan's taxpayer paid (75%) healthcare for life and give him a SPREADSHEET when he is suffering and he will most likely sing a different song. Medicare is GOOD; just needs a little reform and good jobs to boost it up!!! Can PAUL RYAN supply these good jobs?
I JUST KNEW WHEN HE STARTED FLIP/FLOPPING last month something was up. Must be MItt's adopted son!!!
What do they say about a weasle, "will tell you what they think you want hear to get what they want and then they screw you over".
Paul Ryan said he was willing to be voted out of Congress before he would change his mind about doing away with Medicare as we know it. JUST WATCH/LISTEN to the weasle in the next couple of months to see if he is a "LIAR, LIAR, PANTS on FIRE"!
If you vote for these two clowns, you will deserve the "depression" this country will be in.

That's right. He's just as dumb, disconnected and irresponsible as Obama, Biden and Romney. I agree with you.
#5 Aug 12, 2012
Our country has been doomed for the last 4 yrs, it's a matter of saving it the best way we can. We have had 4 yrs of tribulation under Hussein Obama, America is not ready for Armageddon!
What has Obama left us with?

Do your own research. People who followed her teaching for a while had second thoughts when they spent time with her.
Paul Ryan admits he follows her views. Open the link to Atlas Shrugged. It has been reported that Paul Ryan follows this like the Bible.

You are SO misinformed.
When Obama took over, the country was well on its way to a "Great Depression". Obama's administration stopped the downward spiral and turned things around. Housing market is going up. Under W., so many people lost the little savings they had because they bought into the idea of buying more house than they needed or could pay for - speculation. Modification plan Obama put forward couldn't help them because it wasn't fair to the taxpayers who bought/paid for reasonable affordable homes to pay for what the 1% caused. It was a valuable lesson ALL should have learned.(By the way, W. did realized in 2006 what was going to happen in 2007 and did NOTHING.)
Because of what happended during the W. Admin., we need Gov't. to oversee Corporate America/Wallstreet if the free society will continue. If Gov't is dismantled, Corporate America will make all the rules and "Not in my neighborhood will fall on deaf ears"! In China there is a "fresh water" crisis going on. Do you want that here?
We now have a plan going forward where more people will get affordable healthcare! It is funny how all the ones who publically denouce it are taking full advantage of it. It is a GOOD THING! Ask anyone diagnosed with a chronic illness!
He has protected Medicare and SS. Working to reform them so it will be a safety net for future generations! Just like Welfare, we need reform!
There is more energy production going on. Less oil imported. He stood up for our environment (you know clean air/water). He is promoting "green" just like the rest of the industrialized countries. We are destroying the planet so a few people can crap on a 24K toilet. Does that make sense to you? Don't you care about your kids' future?
He put forth a jobs program that the Repubs in Congress have stopped! We need to fix/expand our infrastructure. That will more the economy forward. Taxpayers paid for the infrastruction, not Corporate America - Mitt R. doesn't have a clue. Doing business in other countires has left him OUT OF TOUCH!!!!
Obama has been working for the Middle Class and small businesses since day one (W. Admin. left them in the dust years ago).
Mitt R.'s tax plan, when he finally shared it, is going to give the 1% more tax breaks and the 99% add'l debt in the trillions. After he heard from the economist, he said he would rework in time for the election. Trust him? Why doesn't he release his tax returns (12 years like his dad said was reasonable)? Members of his own party don't understand why he doesn't. Do you?
Paul Ryan wants to turn Medicare/SS over to For Profit. With the new retirement formula put in place by W.'s Admin., future generations will work until they die; if they can get a job. They will die sooner because there will be NO Medicare. This man is dispicable. He is a number cruncher. After seeing his home, I understand why they did not want to make the announcement from there. Another member of the GREEDY 1%!!!
Do you really think these two have your back?
By the way, where are all the jobs the Repubs promised when Obama expanded the W. tax breaks? LIED AGAIN!!! You do realize Mitt/Paul will NOT KNOW you if they get elected - you will have been used once again!!!
#8 Aug 12, 2012
Did ya'll notice that the announcement was made on a battleship?
Did either one of them serve in the armed forces?
Or does this mean the defense program will get the majority of tax revenue (screw healthcare, Medicare and SS) if they are elected.
I bet neither will send a child to war; they are just about starting wars and making the 1% richer!!!
Mitt R., and now Paul Ryan, are telling you what their priorities are: lower tax rates for the 1% and increase the defense budget (huge lucrative defense contracts for the 1%).
How many want to send their love ones to fight Isreal's battle (keep in mind Iran has Nuclear Weapons unlike Iraq)? Just like W. and Cheney, they SURELY WILL NOT!!!!

Paul Ryan, Ayn Rand Fan, Brings Writer's Philosophy To Presidential Stage
You should really get to know their reading habits and beliefs.
What is the old saying "NO MAN IS AN ISLAND". "NO ONE SUCCEEDS ALONE"!
Those that claim they can do it all by themselves are lying!
#11 Aug 12, 2012
Is that all you have to say?
How much do you know about Paul Ryan?
He went to college because he collected SS checks (father died). Then went into the family business, then went into Congress. It was reported that he carrys Ayn Rand's book "Atlas Shrugged" around like it is the Bible. It is a book of fiction.
Maybe you should stop posting ignorance and educate yourself!!!!
#12 Aug 12, 2012
Look, if you think that one is any better than the other than you are a frickin idiot. If you think Obama turned this economy around, you aren't plugged into reality. If you think Romney is a conservative, or that he has a plan to save America you are sadly mistaken. Paul Ryan's plan will balance the budget by 2045.
How long will you fools buy into the shit candidates that the elite in this country make you choose from?
#13 Aug 12, 2012
If you know anything about Ayn Rand, he doesn't follow a damn thing from that philosophy other than flaunting the name. The guy voted for TARP bailouts. Gave our tax money to companies that made stupid choices. So did Obama. Romney supported it. How are you idiots not seeing that they are all the same.
#14 Aug 12, 2012
The budget was balanced when W. took over in 2001 - look what they did - unfunded Rx plan (1% got rich) and two unpaid wars (1% got richer). Do you really believe these two clowns will NOT involve America in Isreal's war with Iran? That's how Repubs create jobs. They have made NO secret of it (the announcement was on a battleship). Or, do you think Mitt R. was blowing smoke of the American Jews' butts?
I am very "plugged in". It was announced this week that the housing market has turned around. Values/sales going up. It is a slow, but steady and dependable process.
In the 3-1/2 years Obama has been in office we got out of Iraq, killed binLadin, came up with an affordable healthcare plan (we can pay for it if we put people to work and stop sending money/troops/weapons to other countries).
By the way, what manufacturing company did Paul Ryan run where he was successful in creating good jobs w/benefits and a profit? Oh yeah, he worked in the family business - NO INTERVIEW REQUIRED!!!! We all know how that goes!!!!!! Since age 28 he has been in Congress - how did he get SO rich? That is a big question you should be asking him before you post nonsense here!!! Where are his tax returns??????
Insider Trading anyone? I heard the new law Congress came up with has holes so big you can drive trucks through them.
Time limits and no benefit packages is the way of the future. If they say it is good for Full Time Gov't employees, it should be good enough for Temps!
Clean out Congress!!!!! They don't seem to want to pass a jobs bill that will put people to work building our country.
America First continuing forward march!

It is easy to make 20/20 hindsight comments after the fact.
The country's economy was in free fall. Obama got with the banks to have them lead the way back (return confidence in Wallstreet) and the SOBs took the money and gave themselves raises and bonuses.
You ask, Why aren't more in jail? Because Wallstreet, through K Street created the laws. Like Mitt Romney tells you, it was ALL LEGAL. It just wasn't morally correct!
Obama has been telling you for years, the answer is to pump up small businesses. That has been his focus for years and Mitt R. wants to put an end to that!
Mitt's message: allow people to lose their homes (only help the banks on Wallstreet by taking away regs), creating low wage jobs with no benefits (get rid of affordable care), go to college only if your parents can loan you the money, same with starting a business and send other peoples love ones to a Nuclear War in Isreal.
People aren't idiots.
Obama is not the panecea, but "first do no harm". He is the best of all choices presented! No one can argue with that!

Paul Ryan Only Passed 2 Bills Into Law In More Than A Decade
You will not believe the two bills passed. LAME!! Is this really what our tax dollars are paying for. I want to find out what our Congress people have done. Is it this LAME.
Unlike Sarah Palin, he didn't go around firing people for personal reasons. I guess that is something - lame, but something.
And yet he is so rich; how?
Looking at all these wealthy politicians, does it make sense that EARNED INCOME is taxed higher than UNEARNED INCOME? It kinda discourages cos. from wanting to pay good wages and benefits!

The Icemen Cometh: Romney-Ryan and the future of compassion in America
Is it God first, then family
Money most high?
#20 Aug 13, 2012
Paul Ryan's famiy business, from news reports, received large Gov't contracts. He was able to go to College due to SS checks he received.
Like M. Bachman, and others, Ryan's family would be on Welfare had it not been for Gov't checks. So what exactly is his point? He is a greedy HYPOCRITE!
He and Mitt say they got their wealth legally. That is the issue of the day "WallStreet runs K Street (lobbyists) that bought Congress".
If we want to make a REAL difference, clean out Congress and change the laws to represent ALL people fairly, not just the 1%!!!!!
Every time an interviewer asks them about all the loopholes the 1% get richer with, they have a smirk on their face and say something to the effect that that would be something they would look into. Obama not only pointed these loopholes out, there is three years he wanted them closed, but was blocked by the Repubs in the House. The 1% is giving them millions/billions of dollars to put them in office. It is not to "create a fair playing field".
If Gov't (taxpayers) don't look over Corporations back, they will completely destroy our economy, environmnet, freedom and way of life for the GREED OF MONEY!!!
