    Paul Ryan Booed At AARP (VIDEO)

    Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) was booed by the audience while pledging to repeal Obamacare at AARP's annual conference Friday in New Orleans.

    "The first step to a stronger Medicare is to repeal Obamacare, because it represents the worst of both worlds: It weakens Medicare for today's seniors and puts it at risk for the next generation," said Ryan, drawing boos from the audience.

    Speaking about the cut in the rate of growth for future Medicare spending, Ryan said, "The money wasn't walled off to stay in Medicare. Instead, the law turned Medicare into a piggy bank for Obamacare." That earned louder boos.

    "You don't have to take my word for it, you don't have to take my word for it," Ryan pleaded.

    Yeah, it sounded like a mixed reaction to me. Hard to tell if they were booing Ryan or Obamacare. Probably a bit of both.

    Try again.

    Ryan's own words: "I had a feeling there would be mixed reactions"

    Well, if they were booing Ryan it wouldn't surprise me. The AARP is a left leaning organization bent on their own personal greed.
