Think Progress: “On Friday afternoon, Paul Ryan addressed the AARP’s National Annual Conference in New Orleans. The GOP vice presidential candidate attacked Obamacare for taking $716 billion out of Medicare — the very same cuts he included in his budget — and made the case for transforming seniors’ health care from a guaranteed benefit into a premium support “voucher” program.
“The address didn’t go over well. Audience members called Ryan a “liar,” told him to “go home” and the repeatedly booed his critique of President Obama and health reform.”
He called the loud booing a “mixed reaction.” haha.
This is heart-warming for a couple of reasons. First, Ryan deserves to be booed endlessly — from the moment he steps out the door in the morning until he inserts earplugs at night, so he can sleep over all the booing from people in the street. And secondly, did AARP members suddenly stop watching Fox “news”? Good on them. I am relieved and happy that people are actually paying attention.
