    from the real problem in our economy.

    This is just warmed-over free-market economics in an age of greed that that tries to sell us on the notion that unchecked self-interest furthers the common good. Milton Friedman was wrong.Government was not the cause of the Great Depression although some of its actions made it worse.

    Ryan is playing his anti-government rag again and it wasn't accurate the first time either.Ryan personally benefited from social security after his father died and he had enough money to attend an out of state college(Miami University in Ohio). His family had a successful business that was passed down from several generations. He is the last person, like Romney, who should be telling others that they are "takers" and makers.

    Expect more of this garbage. The GOP are the Walking Dead but that doesn't mean that they can't "bite" and cause harm to our economy again. They will take advantage of the economic uncertainty we face while Republicans attempt another round of obstruction to put in place a "self-fulfilling prophesy" economic crisis.
