Can't wait to see whose deaths the dems tie Ryan to. Maybe Jon Bonet Ramsey? Ryan is a good man and we will see the desperation of lies come in 3..2..1.. Ryan has a budget that was passed with Democrat votes in the House. It sits in the DO Nothing Reid Senate. Ryan has a plan to help the bankrupt medicare and the Dems have none. They Dems keep lying about Ryans plan because they don;t want to talk about MC at all. The dems keep lying about his plan but seem to forget just how our government is supposed to work. What comes out of the House is supposed ot be debated in the Senate, not get stuffed in Reid's drawers. They are afraid to debate it. And they also talk about Ryan's bill as if it is the THE bill that will end up on the Presidents desk. They seem to forget how it all works with amendments etc. Debate what passes the House and get on with the business of Government Harry Reid. Don;t be afraid of doing your job in the DO Nothing Senate.
