Now the circle is complete. The worm has turned and the nation can now look forward to a presidential race newly infused with the youth and enthusiasm that newly minted Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan brings to the fray. Lets briefly review what the conservative right's, err Mitt Romney's pick brings to the table.
Paul Ryan is a huge fan of the novelist Ayn Rand who considered selfishness a virtue and altruism as evil. How nice. Paul Ryan is the architect of a budget plan that raises taxes on the middle class and continues to cut them for millionaires. How to pay for such a plan? Gut the social safety net of course as 62% of Ryan's 'savings' come from cutting programs that benefit the poor and middle class. How altruistic of him.
Ryan supports huge subsidies for big oil, wants to eliminate Pell grants, sponsored a 'person hood amendment, admitted that Romneycare is 'not that dissimilar to Obamacare", stated that Romneycare has led to "rationing and benefit cuts." This modern GOP. Hey. At least they're consistent.
