Why Ya Cryin’, Paul Ryan?

Ryan on Obama Budget Plan: The President is ‘Poisoning the Wells’

You really thought you could come up with a plan to replace Medicare with some sort of privatized voucher system and not piss off a Democrat president? I know he’s made many concessions, but you had to have known that this wouldn’t fly. The Affordable Care Act was his baby. You didn’t want to build around the baby. You wanted to kill it, slash its teddy bear (Medicaid), and throw its older sibling (Medicare) to the wolves.

I nearly choked on my cranberry juice when I heard this gem:

“We are looking for bipartisan solutions not partisan rhetoric.”

Your leader, Boehner said that raising taxes was “unacceptable and a nonstarter” before the speech. If that isn’t partisan rhetoric, I don’t know what is.

Obama allowing everything on the table to be cut is one half of a bipartisan solution. The other half has to come from your party. Raising taxes. I know it hurts, but you don’t think what he offered didn’t? That’s how things will get done – compromise. And enduring pain for the greater good.

Dry your beautiful blue eyes. Considering your plan, you’re lucky he didn’t impale you with that olive branch. Beating you with it should not have been a surprise.
