    Republicans in Swing Districts Take Heat for Supporting Ryan's Medicare Plan
    National Journal
    April 25 2011
    House Republican leaders plan to hold a conference call with members Tuesday. ...... part of the call will be spent discussing ways to discuss the vote with constituents. One source says it’s intended to help swing-district members "who have been getting the crap kicked out of them."

    These are strong signs of how the Baggers have pushed the reactionary republicans so far right that they've hung themselves, the penulum is starting to swing back to the middle. I'd bet that the heat on the repubs over their Medicare debacle will become 'white hot' before its over, that initiative of Ryans is 'cooked'. LOL !!!

    Whats fun to watch is how the public is waking up to the fact that the budget Ryan is trying to scam the voters with, will actually give nearly the same amount to the rich that will come from the elderly and young families with children out of Medicare and other safety net programs. Their budget self destruction is within site, that is if Obama can find enough spine to keep from negotiating away his ace card. LOL

    An interesting commentary on the real cost estimates that the Ryan plan would saddle us with. I'm especially attracted to the part where seniors would ultimately be paying more than their income for health care.

    Anyone remember Ryan's qualifications as a economist? Pretty impressive. Not.
