Okay.

Mitt Romney picks Paul Ryan to be his running mate.

Don't know how you feel about this, but I think it's a pretty good choice.

Many Dems think it's a good choice so they can demagogue retiree entitlments.

If you remember, Dems had the commercial with Ryan pushing granny over the cliff.

If I were a senior, and I can assure you every birthday I get closer and closer and would be stingy about my benefits I worked hard for too.

Yestersay at church, I was speaking to a lovely woman who is an older adult. She asked me if Romney wins, will my benefits ago away?

Nooooooo. No ones benefits are going away.

If you are 55 and older you get the same deal. And let me tell you what I told her.

If we don't get spending under control, there is going to be no money left for anyone.

You never hear where Obama cut 700 billion out of medicade?

Thats more than the Romney plan would.

You also hardly hear about stuff like this.

An intern program for the United States Department of Agriculture budgeted for $2 million. They hire one intern.

When I mention this to some of my more left-leaning friends, they shrug and say thats just how it works.

No. It doesn't have to. Washington D.C. has been run like a 1860s house of ill repute and thats what's wrong.

Even though a watchdog group caught the 9th district federal judges taking lavish vacations in Hawaii, a spokesperson for the judges said the trip was already booked and they would lose depodite money.

They would have lost $2,500.

Now they are going to Hawaii and party..er..pardon me...have continuing education.

Again, if you are 55 and older, no change with the Ryan plan.

Younger than 55---that will be hammered our with vouchers.

But again, if we don't fix this spending, your retirement home will be sitting in the woods.

Thats my point of view, what's yours?

I am originally from WI. I have a brother in the state legislature there. I also have ran for state office there. I have several connections who know Paul Ryan very well. Like me they are mostly well past 55, but even those who have a ways to go have no fear of Ryan or his plan. Like Neal said, if something is not done soon, it won't matter, there won't be any money to support any system. Don the real numbers show what is happening in DC is unsustainable, period. WE ARE ALREADY BROKE!

too broke for anymore tax cuts for anyone LIKE THE ONE RYAN WANTS TO GIVE TO THOSE WHO EARN MORE THAN 3 MILLION....PERIOD. PUT A TARIFF ON EVERY PRODUCT THAT IS MANUFACTURED BY AN AMERICAN BASED COMPANY THAT IS IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY TOO. GET RID OF FREE TRADE AND LETS HAVE FAIR TRADE.

Amen Neal!

So, apparently Don doesn't like Mitt's choice. What a surprise, and what better endorsement! He defends the workers? and yet supports Obama? Let's hear the insults Don. Call him trailer trash, stupid, killer, we know you will. It doesn't matter how bad because remember by definition you CAN'T be guilty of hate speech.

So you hate American workers too jp? You endorse the big spending so called conservative ryan who has been on the government teet for more than 20 years or more than half of his life? WOW what ignorance.

OH AND WOOOOSTER, PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL BE RE-ELECTED SO START PACKING UP THAT TRAILER HOUSE AND GET READY TO MOVE IF YOU HATE AMERICA AND AMERICAN WORKERS AS MUCH AS YOUR POSTS REFLECT

JOIN A WINNING TEAM FOR AMERICAN WORKERS

POLITICO 8-13-12
"Paul Ryan’s voting record: Big-spending conservatism" Paul Ryan rose to the top of the political ranks on his reputation as a conservative budget hawk. But his voting record shows him to be far from a pure fiscal conservative.Ryan voted for the $700 billion bank bailout, the biggest Medicare expansion in U.S. history, a massive highway bill that included the “Bridge to Nowhere” and other big-ticket priorities when George W. Bush was president— going to bat for a high-spending

Well I am just under 55 and have paid for the plan that is effect now and that is what I want. So you are telling me, if I pay for something I should not receive it. That is like going to China mart, buying a lets say fishing rod and was told that I could not leave the store with it to go fishing. The cap on the payroll tax should be removed and everyone who earns money should be paying taxes on all of their income like I do & at the same % that I do. That would take care of SS & Medicare
