You’ll be hearing Paul Ryan criticize President Obama for not supporting the Simpson-Bowles Plan.
When you hear this, remember that Ryan was a member of the Simpson-Bowles Commission, and he voted against the plan because it included tax increases. He was one of those who kept it from going to Congress for an up-or-down vote.
You’re going to hear Ryan talking about the deficit, but that’s just a smokescreen. He couldn’t care less about the deficit, he just cares about more tax cuts for the rich.
Mitt is slick and sleazy, but in an awkward way. Ryan is slick and sleazy, but in a much smoother, more graceful way. Mitt knows he’s a duckling who’s never going to become a swan, so he hired himself one.
In the past, the GOP has won by convincing middle-class people that the Dems don’t care about them, they care about the poor. But all Americans need to understand that this GOP ticket cares only about the rich and would be a disaster not just for the poor, but for the middle class as well.
Look, you can’t get over 50% of Americans to vote for a ticket that benefits 1% of us, so their mission is to lie. Our mission is not to fall for it.
