Seniors in attendance at a convention in New Orleans booed Mitt Romney's running mate Paul Ryan for his statements on reforming Medicare. It doesn't look like it's working out too well for the GOP ticket to run on a plan to reform so-called entitlements -- programs we've paid into for decades.
Remove the Cap on social security, FICA tax. The Social Security and Medicare programs would be sitting in great same.
Just like Staples! Hit the EASY button!
The cap on FICA is like welfare for rich Jerks like RYAN and ROMNEY.
They make me sick!

I'd feel bad for Misses Mitt if she wasn't fresh off hugging the Koch brothers at a fundraiser. Poor woman probobly doesn't have a TV and didn't see the air conditioned Americans for Prosperity bus stuffed with Tea Party Traitors dressed up as the joker or sporting an ignorant derogatory racial protest sign while spitting at congressmen, or the time the misfit GOP congressidiot that yelled out "you lie" at the Presidents State of the Union address, not to mention the US Extreme Court Justice "not true", Glen Beck's rally, and who can forget the Presidential Library that was an outhouse rolling up the Idaho GOP convention hosted by the co-chair of the Romney Campaign. Poor dear, no sympathy for the devil.

The reason why it's called an entitlement is because I paid for it, my social security and my medicare, and so did my employers. Therefore I AM entitled to it. Paul Ryan and Koch-Brothers sponsor are both wedded to the Grover Nordquist/Ayn Rand(an Atheist) vision of 'Atlas-Shrugged', survival of the fittest, law-of-the-jungle with no government whatsoever in the way to stop child labor abuse or any other abuse of working people.
If we want to break the log-jam in Washington-DC, it's time to vote out ALL tea-partiers starting with Paul Ryan and also vote out all 2010 Tea-Party freshmen who think it's their job to block veteran jobs legislation to stop the President looking positive in any way, instead of creating some jobs for their constituents. Let's defeat every single GOP in both the House AND all the GOP senators running for re-election in 2012.
This is a goal we can achieve if we put our minds to the task. Let's BREAK the log-jam in Washington, vote straight Democrat REP & SENATOR on your ballot, and for ALL state elective offices as well.

Off topic: Has anybody heard the latest "complaint" by Annie?
"I'm sick of "you people" not understanding how hard it is to be Ann Romne".
Poor Annie. How hard does she think it will be, being the first Lady? God forbid. How hard to she think the righties have made it for our First Lady? As always, ME, ME, ME and "you people". Sickening.

Ryan was lying & the crowd wasn't buying:
So Paul Ryan gets booed while talking down to the audience through lies; while trying to convince the AARP crowd of seniors that TAKING AWAY Medicare, Social Security & Medicaid will somehow benefit them & save them.............message to Radical Ryan..........Keep Your Hands OFF my Medicare, Social Security & Medicaid........I paid into those programs my entire life so don't mess with the Big 3......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Romney & Ryan both have that arrogant attitude of being superior to their audience unless they are speaking to their big donors "their kind of people"........they come across as I am above you.........I know better than you........so you just need to sit, listen & obey because you have less money..............the problem with Romney/Ryan is they base all their statements on Ideological philosophy instead of on hard based facts..............they base everything on their hypothesis based on ideology philosophical fictional belief system.......and don't forget they also pander to big money donors who are looking for a return on investment............Romney/Ryan put material things above people's well being.
