    With the Ryan pick, and his promise of transparency, I have forgotten about Mittens' tax returns, foreign investments, foreign bank accounts, his tax avoidance while on the board of Marriott's that resulted in a $212 million fine, how he got $100 million in an IRA, and his desire to start wars while giving bigger tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans/

    If you like vouchers for medicare, you'll like Ryan. If you like to see an end of social security as we know it, you'll love Ryan. you want to ensure that ACA will end, and 6 million students are kicked off their parents insurance, if you get sick insurance companies can drop you, your benefits are capped, women's benefits are eliminated, you'Il love Mittens/Ryan taking us backward to a Taliban type country.

    well folks our country's infrastructure will be in the toilet with these 2 because their trickle down mentality won't make private companies to use shareholders money to rebuild our schools, roads, and bridges. Obama need to take some of the rich tax cut money and bring our country from the 20th century to the 21st century.
