When Paul Ryan was booed by an AARP crowd for touting the repeal of Obamacare, he said he expected a "mixed reaction."
The first step to a stronger Medicare is to repeal Obamacare, [loud boos and jeers] because it represents the worst of both worlds. I had a feeling there would be mixed reactions, so let me get into it. [...]Remember way back when, when Paul Ryan introduced the second iteration of his insane budget? He told a reporter for Bloomberg who asked about the reception he was getting in his town meetings: "The crowds are overwhelming supportive. I'm very excited."
RYAN: [...] Come on, it’s not worth the peanut gallery. Let’s clean up the tax code and lower our tax rates. The reason why I say, the president’s commission said the same thing, we’re taxing our businesses our employers, a lot more than our competitors are taxing theirs—Ryan seems to be confusing a loud and vehement response to what he says as enthusiasm for what he says. So for the hapless Mr. Ryan, when they say "boo" and hiss at something you say, that's not a good thing.
(Audience boos, hisses)
CONSTITUENT: He’s lying!
