The One “Issue” Paul Ryan Brings Up


Republicans’ new favorite talking point is that by Mitt Romney nominating Paul Ryan to be his running mate it means that it’s more likely we’ll talk about issues.

There’s only one issue Paul Ryan brings up. As someone who voted for the Iraq War, the Bush tax breaks and an unfunded Medicare Part D then proposed a budget that guts nearly everything that helps working people, he gives us the perfect opportunity to make this point:

The exact same people who blew the surplus, exploded our debt and crashed our economy are still using this crisis as an opportunity to gut our social safety net and transfer trillions more in wealth to the rich.

That’s the only issue Paul Ryan brings up that matters.
