Rep. Paul Ryan [R-WI] Booed at a Town Hall

Could it be, we, Americans, are beginning to awake from our cozy slumber? It seems the mountain of lies and the barrels of deceit could finally be catching up to the Republican-Tea Party. Finally, for once the public makes it known their Representative is full of it. This time it's Paul Ryan [R] of Wisconsin. His constituents let him know exactly how they feel about his lies and his bogus "Pathway to Prosperity" budget proposal.

CONSTITUENT: The middle class is disappearing right now. During this time of prosperity, the top 1 percent was taking about 10 percent of the total annual income, but yet today we are fighting to not let the tax breaks for the wealthy expire? And we’re fighting to not raise the Social Security cap from $87,000? I think we’re wrong.

RYAN: A couple things. I don’t disagree with the premise of what you’re saying. The question is what’s the best way to do this. Is it to redistribute… (Crosstalk)

The Tea Party

Dumbasses. Seriously. Yeah let's cut Head Start, LIHEAP, Pell grants, transportation-ya know- attack the poor and vanishing middle class. We simply must "keep dreamin" that one day- if we work hard enough, we too can be millionaires. All of us. I'm sooo happy GE made $14.1 BILLION & got that well deserved $4 billion rebate check. Whew. Gotta go get me a cup o tea. Thanks Teatards, you uneducated morons.

The Koch Brothers Run GOP

Oil tycoon brothers Charles and David Koch are two gigantic genius hypocrites. Aside from that, they are also unfortunately dangerous. Why? Well because David and Charles Koch are billionaires (each personally worth about $21.5 billion) with selfish ideas. They preach libertinism, small government and conservative ideas. This is fine and dandy, except they accept corporate welfare, bailouts for a failing Alaskan oil refinery, and use government subsidies to maximize their own profits. Examples? They lease federal land for their agribusiness for free. Koch logs public forests for private gain- the tax payers cover operating costs. They have won massive government contracts using their close relationship with the Bush administration.(about $85 million in federal government contracts-mostly from the Department of Defense) This sounds more socialistic than libertarian doesn’t it?
