'The Romney-Ryan plan'
William Kristol and Stephen Hayes, who have been among the most supportive of and vocal about a Paul Ryan VP nomination, push back on the notion that Mitt Romney has distanced himself from the Medicare cuts in the congressman's budget map, which they refer to as the 'Romney-Ryan' plan: Romney has praised Ryan's budget without qualification.

Ryans budget is fantastic if you're rich
Or plan on winning the lottery
For the other 99%
Not so much....

The Romney-Ryan Plan:
Feed the Rich
Screw the Poor and Elderly
Make America safe for country-club reTHUGlicans
Pen liberals and minorities in ghettos

Romney-Ryan Plan would pick-up right where Bush-Cheney left off in late 2008 - teetering on the brink of another Great Depression.
"There are only two kinds of Republicans - millionaires and fools – with 99% being the latter"

There are plenty enough DEMOCRATS that are also millionaires. Don't forget about those RICH Democrats.
Both sides of the aisle would benefit.

Eleanor, you're absolutely right, and it's this very point that is killing the country. We've been driven into an invisable war of political parties which has zapped both sides of the strength it will take to the demand changes beneficial to everyone.
We've allowed the super rich to control our government far too long. Money and power are fine in the boardroom, but not in government where the money and the control both belong to the people. A well-known economist recently said that we haven't seen the worst of our economic decline. We've been teetering on the brink for the last few years, but he almost guarantees 2013 will bring a major depression.
That's a bit frighening. Without government leaders who can work as a team, respect each other and work for the people we won't survive. Next year will bring a possible change in leadership, possible violent anger and action from the losing side, continued unemployment, higher food and gas prices due to this year's drought, rising poverty levels, and I believe we will begin to see civil uprisings. There is an undercurrent of the population, namely the working middle class, who believes it is being squashed under the weight of the super rich. These working people are getting tired of working more and earning less while the companies they work for make record profits and the company leaders live like kings.
Something has to give. America is a powder keg. If something doesn't change I foresee us being torn apart from within. We can't count on ANY elected officials having the ability to make the changes we desperately need, because each and every one of them is owned by whomever or whatever paid the most money to control them. And yet all we can do is throw rocks over the fence at each other. I wonder how many rocks we'll throw when millions of us end up broke, jobless, homeless and hungry? It's easy now to say 'it won't happen to me.' Lots of people thought the same thing in 1920.

Our country needs an ENEMA !
A great enema would be; since the US Supreme Court now has given corporations the same rights as people, that we recognize that, and under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment.
And that we make corporations liable under common criminal law for anyone killed in their normal course of business, due to neglect, or inaction.
That mine, in TN, that was run unsafely, and had the huge cave in?
Charge the board of directors and Corporate Officers of the mine corporation, and and parent or holding company too, with MURDER.
Put them all in jail for 30 years to life; and subject the corporations themselves to Capital Punishment, cancellation of all corporate charters, and liquidation of all assets at a public auction.
There's an AMERICAN ENEMA for you.

So mr_shillfortheobuttwipe you apparently support bankrupting the coal industry as the obuttwipe is trying to do, thereby causing hundreds of thousands of workers to lose their jobs and energy costs for the poor and middle class to soar thru the roof?

I heard you support Mitt Romney's balls with the bridge of your nose. True?

Why would Romney want to cut the throat of his
own offspring, Romney/Obama Care?
Ryan's the creep with the knife
just waiting to do evil..
