    Ralph Nader has sent Paul Ryan three letters requesting a debate on the Ryan Budget.
    Paul's "too busy" to defend his budget in front of millions interested American voters on national television.

    Heeeere's Ralph:

    "Very well, Mr. Ryan, then why have you refused to civilly debate your proposals and their consequences with any of your critics inside and outside the Congress before a national television audience?

    "I requested that you have this important exchange in three letters (first,second,third). Finally, your office demurred on the grounds that you were too busy.

    "Are you really too busy to debate your plan which has passed the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and has been generally endorsed by Mitt Romney?

    "Or are you too fearful of trying to defend your numbers and their plutocratic values to the likes of Princeton professor and Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, who has called the Ryan budget 'the most fraudulent in American history'”?

    Ryan

    Who the fuck is Ralph Nader?

    Maybe he can debate on "The Newsroom"?

    I don't like Nader but he has a point. Lyin' and Hidin' Ryan won't answer questions from the press or respond to Nader and others. Typical.

    Ryan should take Nader up on it and offer to pick him up in a Corvair

    Nader's a rock star.
    Ryan's a brown nose.
    Not hard to guess which one you'll vote for.

    Ryan probably can't defend (or even find) the numbers in his budget.
    No insults in CDZ.
    "His plan for social security is social insecurity. Make people work longer before receiving curtailed benefits, invest trillions of dollars of these funds in the volatile stock market and make sure that rich people only have to pay social security taxes on a fraction of their earned income.

    "He would open the floodgates on future Medicare to the rapacious health insurance companies through a voucher system whereby the elderly are fed to these sharks with ever-higher co-pays.

    "His 'block grant plan alone would lead states to drop between 14 and 27 million people (the poor and those with disabilities) from Medicaid by 2021,' according to the Urban Institute."

    Ryan

    Ryan's about as likely to accept Ralph's challenge as he is to follow in Pat Tillman's footsteps.

    Why are the debates limited to the candidates of the two party coup d'état?

    The debates are between the two who top the polls. If you want someone else, support them, if enough people do, that person will be in the debate and one of the others will be out.
