    Paul Ryan, the Voucher half of the Vulture/Voucher GOP Presidential ticket, is exploiting his mommy to help him sell Voucher Medicare to seniors in Florida.

     ABC News Reports

    Paul Ryan is headed to a Florida retirement community with his mother on Saturday to make his argument about the need to change Medicare for future generations. Ryan’s mother is in her late 70s.
     He’ll appear at The Villages, the world’s largest retirement community and a conservative stronghold that is a must stop for Republican candidates. In 2008, a massive crowd of between 30,000 and 60,000 seniors came out to a rally Sarah Palin held there. Despite the Republican-leanings it’s a clear sign the Romney campaign will continue to stay on the offense on Medicare, but with this trip they may be entering the lion’s den.
     Ryan’s mother, who will accompany him, can help her son connect with the senior citizen audience. She lives part of the year in Lauderdale-By-The Sea and part of the year outside of Janesville, Wisconsin.
     Wow!  So Ryan's mommy is going to help him lie to seniors and try to con them into selling out their own kids and grandkids who are 55 and younger.

      I get using your own family's history to express support for one issue or another, but Ryan's mommy benefits from Medicare and also benefited from Survivor Spousal Social Security so she could pay her bills and enjoy her kids.  

      Come to think of it, Paul Ryan relied on and looked forward to using Social Security benefits to pay for his college when his daddy died.

      Look, I have no doubt that Ryan's mommy will tell the crowd that her baby would never take away her Medicare --- and I'm sure Ryan would not take his mother's Medicare away.  Just like Ryan never put his money where his mouth is on Taxpayer Paid healthcare that he and his family will enjoy for the rest of his life; he got his but wants bankers and insurance companies to profit millions so you don't get yours.

       Ryan, I'm sure your mommy has no idea what a creep you are to "the People."  I'm sure she has on very rosy glasses when she sees you.   I'm sure you and your mommy think it's great to take guaranteed Medicare away from future generations so your wife's former lobbying firms can rake in millions in profits.

      Who knows, maybe Ryan will have one of his kids help him sell the idea of ending WIC, or SCHIP, or Food Stamp program.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
