71-year-old taken to the ground for questioning Paul Ryan
Ryan: “Most of our debt in the future comes from our entitlement programs.”
Senior citizen: “Hey. I paid into that for 50 years, my unemployment and my Social Security and my Medicare, and now you’re gonna…” At this point you hear the police who are dragging him out shouting, “on the ground, on the ground”.
Ryan then jokes, “I hope he’s taken his blood-pressure medication!” and laughs.
This is a 71 year old man having a smiling oil slick in a cheap suit tell him he’s going to destroy the MAJORITY of the work he did to take care of himself in his old age . And this mofo asks about his BLOOD PRESSURE MEDS
which under his vice presidency the man would never be able to afford…..
My soul can not even understand that level of mean….
Do we know if Pawpaw i okay?
Of course he would be the kind of guy who cracks cruel jokes about an old man’s meds as goons drag him away, as though wishing for a medical emergency to befall him. Nice.
And the absurdity of the lie: that most debt comes from “entitlement programs”. Naw man, almost all US debt comes from dishing trillions into the military-industrial complex; half of which is full-on padding of Wall Street pockets and an entire underground economy of the super-rich; and half of which goes to maintaing global military imperialism.
Cutting social services makes no dent in the deficit, but it does something else that right-wingers are into: hurts people and staggers the economy. They’re into that apocalyptic disaster capitalism shit.
Everyone should see this.
