    Just what is one voting for when one votes Republicans. Srsly. These people gotta get it together. They only seem to be united on their war on women and gay rights.


    "Some first-time House candidates, unencumbered by a vote on the Ryan plan, have told local news media outlets that they have not and will not endorse the proposals found in the vice-presidential nominee’s budget. Some veteran lawmakers who voted for the plan are demurring on whether it will be the party’s policy blueprint, while the few in tough races who voted against it have made their opposition a calling card.

    In a flier distributed to constituents, Representative David McKinley, Republican of West Virginia, who voted against the plan, said that it “would privatize Medicare for future retirees, raise the retirement age and keep in place the Medicare cuts included in last year’s health care bill.” The flier added, “The Congressional Budget Office determined the plan would nearly double out-of-pocket health care costs for future retirees.” "

    If they're bailing just think how fast voters will bail when they hear the details.

    I have high hopes that the American Public will start reading to inform themselves before voting, and that they will have their eyes opened, I mean really, how long can "LYIN RYAN" keep up with the obvious lies without most people seeing through those lies ?


    AM I BEING TOO OPTOMISTIC ?

    I think you're being too optimistic. I have a genuine fear that there are people out there who will vote Romney simply to get a white guy back in the White House. It won't matter how he or Ryan has lied. They're white and that's all that counts.

    Agreed, Republican supporters would vote for anyone.

    They're not even bothered about policies (what policies???), as long as they can get another white rich moron in power.

    It's a shame.

    Like i said previously, generation Xers will be forced to stay at home to take care of aging elderly parents not only medically but also financially. This is a very real and frightening scenario making seniors an extreme burdon on their kids.

    The fading obama poster on the wall serves as a memory of lost opportunities to improve the solvency of medicare via obamacare instead of gutting it to lower taxes for the rich fat cats.
