Posted on 10/09/2013 1:27:43 PM PDT by bestintxas
On Monday, former vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, suggesting that Republicans drop all Obamacare demands in their push for a deal on the debt ceiling and a continuing resolution to fund the government. Instead, he suggested that Republicans look for a bargain on entitlement reform, a pet project of his, as well as tax reform. This isn't a grand bargain. For that, we need a complete rethinking of government's approach to helping the most vulnerable, and a complete rethinking of government's approach to health care. But right now, we need to find common ground. We need to open the federal government. We need to pay our bills todayand make sure we can pay our bills tomorrow. So let's negotiate an agreement to make modest reforms to entitlement programs and the tax code, Ryan wrote.

Another RINO we cannot stand.
Bite me, Paul Rino.
No Surrender, no RINOS!~
Or, he's a liberal turd with an (R) next to his name.
What a tool.
Now we know why Mittens chose him.
Do these guys bother to vet their ideas privately before they open their mouths in public?
Pro-Amnesty and Pro-Surrender.
Let him know how you feel...
Ryan has this laser-like focus on putting the screws to working and middle class GOP voters. Between his support for amnesty and his continued harping on cuts to SS and Medicare, programs to which the average GOP voter has contributed for decades, it’s clear that his constituents need someone else filling his congressional seat.
What motivates these guys?
Ping for later
I don’t know, there may be value to this depending upon how obamacare works out. If we get some real cuts in other areas, we fund obamacare for another year. By then so many people may hate it that we can bring it up again and kill it finally, with plenty of public support.
Particularly when the other party has a long track record of broken promises.

I think we have kicked the can down the road for way too many years.
Sometimes one must face the enemy head-on instead of retreating, like my Senator Ted Cruz.
Reagan did it to USSR and it brought em down
Just when we were winning...
Wolf Blitzer said the White House should take Republicans suggestion and delay Obamacare due to the poor performance of the websites that are facilitating it. If they werent fully ready, they should accept the advice that a lot of Republicans are giving them delay it another year, get it ready, and make sure it works,
Paul Ryan should be pilloried.
Pulling defeat from the jaws of victory
They get into Washington with the money, power fame and glory, and it becomes all about fund-raising and playing with the lobbyists.
The government contractors aren't giving tens of thousands to these guys campaigns to have their cash flow crimped by a "shutdown."
