Wisconsin Republican Paul Ryan, who authored the anti-Robin Hood spending plan, said the budget “comes down to a matter of trust.”
Trust, Ryan believes, should be placed in the rich and Washington
politicians like him, a Prince John man who devised a spending scam
enriching the rich and depriving the rest. Ryan asked, “Who knows better: the people or Washington?” The GOP answer: Washington, of course. A place purchased by the very, very rich.
anti-Robin Hood spending plan takes health care from the poor and
elderly and gives tax breaks to the rich and super rich. Really.
Republicans voted to cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires from
39.6 percent to 25 percent. Nice, right? Except for Americans who depend
on Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare.
Republicans voted to
voucherize Medicare, which would force senior citizens to pay thousands
of dollars more each year. Ryan and his fellow House Republicans voted
to kill Obamacare, which means the 7.1 million who got insurance on the
exchanges would lose it; the 3.1 million young people covered under
Obamacare’s extension of their parents’ plans would lose insurance, and
the 3 million who got insurance under Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion would lose it.
13 million without health insurance, in addition to low-income seniors
struggling to pay premiums as Ryan’s vouchers lose value. But, hey,
billionaires get a tax break!
