    being worse than a lie.  Ryan has left out the whole truth -- that he's responsible for the safety net being shred.
    However, because it is half true, it is hard to effectively refute.  The temptation is to repeat the true part and then add a 'but.'  And that's were people tune out.

    I think outrage has to be suppressed and the response has to be a flat statement that Ryan has slashed our social supports because Republicans believe

    "Come, let us be miserable together"

    to be a winning strategy.  That's what the austerity program is about, right?
