Rep. Paul Ryan voted in December of 2008 to lend billions to General Motors and Chrysler. His vote puts him at odds with Romney and spotlights the difference in the political needs of a sitting congressman versus an out of work governor.
Unless you're a gullible 16-year-old, a 42-year-old Tea Partier or an 86-year-old former chairman of the Fed, you could probably use a primer on the mother of Objectivism, that Dostoevsky for dummies, Ayn Rand.
Thank you Mitt Romney for selecting Paul Ryan as your running mate and thereby unwittingly turning this election into a crusade by all Americans who put country first and are willing to join hands across party lines to fight for fairness.
Let's look at the claim that President Obama is "destroying Medicare" by reducing its growth rate to the tune of $700 billion in the Affordable Care Act. Rep. Ryan has precisely the same cut in his budget. The difference is what they do with the savings.
Paul Ryan's whole argument has been that "at least he has a plan." If Obama offers a plan to save Medicare and Social Security from themselves, create a better tax code, and balance the budget, Ryan's entire appeal would fall apart.
