    The Tea Party is giving a big gift to Democrats this Summer. Tea Party organizers are planning on pushing Paul Ryan's hated Medicare-killing budget in town hall meetings in swing states. I guess the backlash they got a few months back and the NY election that Republicans lost because of the Ryan budget wasn't enough to convince the highly intelligent Tea Party that their plan to dismantle Medicare don't sit well with voters. I can't wait for the town hall videos of Republicans getting yelled at by constituents.

    They want to talk about it, let them. If it is as bad an idea as you seem to think it is, it will dish them.


    If it is as good an idea as I think it is, it will get them larger majorities.

    Either way, the people decide. Which is the way it is supposed to work. Which is cool.


    And as the Mencken said, Democracy is founded on the idea that the people know what they want and deserve to get it .......



    good and hard.

    I guess you haven't been paying attention. Republicans got major backlash from constituents over Paul Ryan's budget. This isn't a theory. It's a fact. Republicans also lost a district seat in NY over Ryan's budget. A seat in a district that has been heavily Republican for decades went to a Democrat, all thanks to Ryan's budget. Good luck.

    That seat in NY was a three way election and the democrat got a plurality and the second Republican was a stalking horse. There was more going on there than just the Ryan plan as an issue.

    If it is good, it will get support. If it is an unpopular and bad idea, the town halls will demonstrate that fact and the Republicans will learn to leave the third rail alone. And if they don't, there is an election in 15 months so they can learn to listen better. That is the way it is supposed to work

    Yes I am sure senior citizens across this nation would just LOVE to slash medicare for future senior citizens. TEA MAKES YOU WEE. Just a cover for the rich trying to keep their tax breaks and loopholes.

    This is great news. The elder voters just love when you threaten medicare, so I say go for it.

    Woohoo. (Dont worry republicans, the elder vote is not that important, righty)?
