I have to wonder if the Repugnican Tea Party traitors who now control the U.S. House of Representatives only because all of us are limp because of Barack Obama’s unfulfilled 2008 campaign promises chose Rep. Paul Ryan to try to sell us on the great idea of destroying Medicare because he’s hot.
I mean, you have to hand it to the Repugnican Tea Party traitors. When Obama controlled both houses of Congress for two fucking years, the only thing that he was able to do was pass pseudo-health care reform. The Repugnican Tea Party traitors control only one house of Congress, and they’ve controlled it for only three months now, but they’re hard at work trying to destroy the remnants of our labor unions and Medicare. (And your little NPR, too!)
Seriously, though, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is such a hottie that he almost could sell me on the wholesale destruction of Medicare, paid for by giving the rich and the super-rich even larger tax breaks. Hell, he probably could sweet-talk me out of both of my kidneys.
I mean, look at that face:

Would such a handsome young man lie about calling the elimination of Medicare (and giving the rich and the super-rich even bigger tax breaks) “the path to prosperity”?
I don’t know… I realize that Ryan is the chair of the House Budget Committee, but it is an accident that he, and not, say, this guy —

— is the face behind the proposed destruction of Medicare, which we just can’t afford anymore, so let’s just give the rich and the super-rich some more tax breaks instead?
Ryan’s proposed make-the-rich-even-richer-and-the-poor-even-poorer budget is going nowhere, but this development is important because the Repugnican Tea Party traitors are floating the idea of destroying Medicare. If this trial balloon were to take off, Social Security would be next on the chopping block.
We need to shoot this shit down, just as we are shooting down the other bullshit that originated in Wisconsin: the Repugnican Tea Party traitors’ attempt to destroy what’s left of the labor movement.
Speaking of which, as I type this sentence, a winner has yet to be called in today’s state Supreme Court election in Wisconsin. News reports right now are that the stupid white male incumbent and his challenger, a progressive female candidate, are at a dead heat.
I predict that the progressive candidate, JoAnne Kloppenburg, is going to win — a blow to treasonous Repugnican Tea Party Gov. Scott “Dead Man” Walker & Co. in Wisconsin, which we are taking back from the Repugnican Tea Party.
Speaking of Repugnican Tea Party traitors from Wisconsin, Paul Ryan needs to go at the next election in Wisconsin, too — even though he does makes me want to coin a new acronym: PILF, maybe…
