Why I Love Paul Ryan

Paul Ryan is a Ranking Budget Committee member for the Republicans, meaning he would become chair should flip to Republican control this fall. What makes Paul Ryan special is that he is very upfront about things that other Republicans fear saying out loud, such as their desire to gut our country's two extremely popular social safety net programs, Medicare and Social Security.

Now the Center for Tax Justice has looked at Ryan's Tax proposal... and notices that he is openly proposing a tax increase for anyone outside of the top income brackets, as well as massive tax cuts for the super wealthy: (Via Yglesias)

Thank you Paul Ryan! If only all Republicans were this upfront with their hideously stupid ideas!
