[Deficit Hawkman narrator]

After being soundly defeated in the last election as voters rejected tax cuts for the rich and attacks on popular programs,

Republicans now turn to . . .

Deficit Hawkman!  Here to save the day with . . .

. . .  tax cuts for the rich and attacks on popular programs.

Chair of the House Budget Committee by day, when Republicans are in trouble, Paul Ryan dons Ayn Rand's stockings and becomes . . .

Deficit Hawkman!

Able to repel wine-and-dine-based attempts to soften his resolve!

Capable of spawning the Great Exalted "Grand Bargain," in which nothing is bargained or grand.

Able to end Medicare in a single blow!

Able to vaporize Medicaid, food stamps and health care reform!

And brave enough to beat back Wall Street reforms!

For Deficit Hawkman truly is a deficit hawk-- unless it comes to Pentagon spending and tax cuts for the rich.

But never fear!  Deficit Hawkman has a secret plan that will pay for the six trillion dollar cost of tax cuts!

Thanks to his mysterious "Loopholes and Deductions Ray," enough money will magically appear!

Just look deeeep into his beautiful hypnotic cobalt blue eyes and you will come to realize his infallible budget wisdom . . .

. . . And believe that he would never knowingly target the middle class to pay for giveaways to the super-rich.

Deficit Hawkman!  Here to save the day for the third time with . . . tax cuts for the rich and attacks on popular programs.

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.
