He's pro business but has never had a private sector job or a business. He's the teabag definition of HYPOCRISY. OH, let's not forget Ryan " I collected SS" and so is my mother. As soon as she croaks I want to get rid of Medicare and SS.

Yes after Republicans are done receiving their tax payer benefits want to eliminate them for others. It is ok for republicans to get benefits but not others.
Ryan is and will receive tax payer benefits for his retirement and health care. Eliminate all retirement and health care benefits for all members of congress and force them on social security and Medicare like their employers the tax payers.

Until then some idiots will choose abortions; that's their choice, their problem, but more importanly their right.
They did. Then in the early 1970's someone else said different. When the problems increased a thousand fold, people blamed others who thought in the old, stupid ways. the ones where personal responsibility meant that your body has the power to deny and the protection from the other sex to defend it. And wallah. Have we baked a cake today or what?

Oh' darn, someone put a wrench in that too:

Sep 20, 2012

WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans blocked legislation Wednesday that would have established a $1 billion jobs program putting veterans back to work tending to the country's federal lands and bolstering local police and fire departments.

Republicans said the spending authorized in the bill violated limits that Congress agreed to last year. Democrats fell two votes shy of the 60-vote majority needed to waive the objection, forcing the legislation back to committee.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) led the opposition to the bill, arguing that the nation’s debt overrode its obligations to help veterans get jobs, and only 5 Republicans voted to proceed with the debate, leaving Democrats two votes short of the 60 required to block a threatened Republican filibuster.

Veterans groups and Democrats are urging Republican senators to put political bickering aside and stop blocking a bill which would help offset high unemployment rates among veterans.

It's demoralizing having the 0rganizer as commander-in-chief.
