Paul Ryan is quietly working behind the scenes to make sure the next head of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), Congress's objective eye in all matters concerning fiscal policy, is an ardent proponent of the Koch's Americans for Prosperity economic agenda.
Democrats have a living, breathing example of privatizing Medicare, and frankly everything in the Path to Prosperity budget, that has done nothing Republicans promise and everything Democrats warned will come to pass. If he has accomplished nothing else, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has given Democrats and all of America a preview of precisely what a Republican Congress will do to America.
One of the primary reasons the GOP is so successful selling a bill-of-goods to voters is that Democrats, while campaigning on issues they fully intend on advancing if elected, are more often than not reluctant to either cite Republicans' broken promises, or inform voters of the GOP's true motivation for seeking control of the government.
If any American thinks the Republicans will not follow through on their shutdown threat, they are deluded because McConnell's own words encapsulated the entire conservative mindset when he promised that "Obama won't like it, but that will be done. I guarantee it."
Democrats allowed Republicans to behave badly and Ryan just said they will behave very badly and hold the debt limit hostage until his Path to Prosperity ransom is paid.
To put Ryan's face on the new compassionate conservatism is an affront to any American familiar with his contempt for suffering Americans.
Boehner's phony indignation targeting conservative groups he bent over backwards serving over the past three years did not have an ounce of truth or credibility.
Speaker John Boehner admitted that rejected Obama's budget proposals immediately, and revealed that he did not have time to read them in their entirety.
The Republican class war has, for well over a decade, contributed greatly to income inequality that hastens America's rush to oligarchy, and the primary driver is trickle down tax cuts.
Republicans are threatening to hold the debt limit increase hostage and they can hardly wait to present their ransom demands to President Obama.
Paul Ryan is lying to justify inflicting more pain on the American people for the sheer joy of giving the richest 1% nearly 15% in tax cuts.
Between Ryan's budget and the CPAC lineup, it should be painfully apparent that the new extremist Republicans will not rest until poverty is rampant, children starve, and seniors perish.
The President is right to tell Americans the devastating truth; Republicans are deliberately punishing people and reversing economic recovery.
Republicans are megalomaniacs who will continue punishing the people for re-electing President Obama to raise taxes on the wealthy by holding the economy hostage to enact austerity.
Honor the sacrifice of veterans by telling Republicans to pass, immediately, the Veterans Jobs Corps Act and oppose the Ryan budget cuts that affect Veterans cost of living adjustments.
The choice in this election is between a slow, but gaining, political struggle towards better environmental policy or a return to Industrial Era abuses
