Skip to comments.House Dems: Paul Ryan is ‘downright sickening’
Posted on 03/20/2013 9:19:37 AM PDT by Nachum
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has some downright sickening plans today, according to the campaign arm of the House Democratic Caucus.
This is downright sickening, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee emails (signed Democratic Headquarters) said in an email today. Today, House Republicans will vote for Paul Ryans Medicare-destroying budget. And guess what Ryans doing right after? Heres what: Hosting a lavish fundraiser in the shadow of the Capitol, hobnobbing with those who will benefit the most from his budget deep-pocketed millionaires and billionaires.
The message continues with a fundraising pitch. The ultra-wealthy and their shady special interests are the Republican Partys biggest supporters. So when the big-money backers come out of the woodwork tonight, will your grassroots power be there to match them?

I always wish that the Democrat Party could get every single detail of everything they want, good and hard, but then I realize the already did - in the Soviet Union. They didn’t learn.
If youre catching flak, youre probably over the target
Pot calling the kettle black..........
Sure sounds like Ryan would be right at home in the democrat party.
The question is between whether we will choose freedom (ordered liberty) or slavery to government. That is the same question which faced the men and women of 1776 and 1787!
Thankfully, they were learned individuals who had studied the history of civilization (including the histories documented in so-called "religious" writings), and they, under the guidance of Divine Providence (Declaration of Independence) produced a People's Constitution to limit government's coercive power.
Messaging which does not lay out the seriousness of the question is inadequate for the times.
How about some plain language and common sense?
"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:39
"I deem [this one of] the essential principles of our government and consequently [one] which ought to shape its administration:... The honest payment of our debts and sacred preservation of the public faith." --Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801. ME 3:322
"I sincerely believe... that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale." --Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1816. ME 15:23
"[With the decline of society] begins, indeed, the bellum omnium in omnia [war of all against all], which some philosophers observing to be so general in this world, have mistaken it for the natural, instead of the abusive state of man. And the fore horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:40
"...there have always been those who wish to enlarge the powers of the General Government. There is but one safe rule...confine (it) within the sphere of its appropriate duties. It has no power to raise a revenue or impose taxes except for the purposes enumerated in the Constitution....Every attempt to exercise power beyond these limits should be promptly and firmly opposed." - Andrew Jackson's Valedictory
"...experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government), those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to illuminate...the minds of the people...to give them knowledge of those facts, which history exhibiteth. History, by apprizing them of the past, will enable them to judge of the future...it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men; it will enable them to know ambition under every disguise it may assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views...." - Jefferson's Bill for the more general diffusion of knowledge for Virginia
"Although all men are born free, slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant--they have been cheated; asleep--they have been surprised; divided--the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson?...the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it....It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently free." - James Madison
"These principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation. The wisdom of our sages and the blood of our heroes have been devoted to their attainment. They should be the creed of our political faith, the text of civic instruction, the touchstone by which to try the services of those we trust; and should we wander from them in moments of error or of alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty, and safety." - Thomas Jefferson-First Inaugural Statement of Principles of Good Government
beat me to it!
Actually, what I read about that abortion trial was downright sickening.
In terms of these maggot politicians, I think we can do quite well without them.
Kinda redundant isnt it? lol
HA-HA, pretty funny Dems,
Ryan's Medicare reform ‘plan’ doesnt take effect till >10 YEARS after some unwritten bill is passed that starts the 10 year clock ticking.
So these millionaires and billionaires benefit from that?
A 10 year clock?
they must be the most patient investors in the world if that is true, assuming Dems are NOT just lying in their fundraiser letters
Attack on Paul Ryan, one of Wisconsin’s favorite sons.
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
I would agree with that, but they should be named.
I should have redundantly called them tape worm politicians, because they are true parasites.
Maggots actually have a beneficial function, whereas a politician does not.
Just another Rat talking point that the average Voter will believe without question while the Republicans do nothing to refute the LIE.
Republicans HOPE people are Informed while Democrats KNOW people are Ignorant.
Works every time it’s tried, like in 2008 and 2012.
Great quotes! Do humans ever learn? Why is it that science can build on itself whereas human wisdom cannot?
‘Millionaires and Billionaires!’
If American citizens had made sure that the ideas of liberty were inculcated in rising generations, then, just as in science, new frontiers in liberty might have been explored. Instead, we and the generations just preceding us allowed "other" ideas to predominate, and the result is more government and less freedom and opportunity.
The so-called "progressive" movement which began as the "liberal" movement in the late 1800's understood that in order for their views to predominate and "transform" America from its foundations, the Founders' ideas would have to be removed from the schools and from public discourse.
As they gained hold of the reins of power in public education and in high places in government, we have seen the ideas of liberty largely erased, and the ideas of dependency, redistribution, and government intervention increase.
Just suppose that in the field of science, some powerful political entity had imposed its negative on the teaching of scientific discoveries to youth.Ideas have consequences!
Must be doing something very right to make such a lot as they sick. Hope they get sick enough to have to make their exit.
So you believe everything the Democrats tell you?
