The "Kill Medicare Guy," Willard Romney's vice-presidential pick, Paul Ryan.
This is a guy who presents himself as a great budget cutting deficit hawk. Yes, there's no one who can chop a budget into little tiny pieces better than the Kill Medicare Guy, is there? Of course not! That's what the Regressive mouthpieces keep telling us, and that's what the lazy news media reports.
But the fact is the Kill Medicare Guy was really the Big Spender Guy who voted FOR both unwinable, unpaid for wars, the unpaid for prescription drug scheme, and the giant tax cuts for millionaires. All of these were put on the national credit card, and they account for the majority of the US's debt today.
But that's not all.
This is a guy who bad mouthed President Obama's stimulus, saying it would not create jobs and would worsen the economy.
That didn't stop him from writing at least 3 letters begging for his state's share of that very same stimulus money. When presented with this fact, his natural instinct was to lie and deny it. But then when it became known throughout the media, he decided to claim he didn't know anything about it. Someone on his staff must have written those letters. But that is your signature on them, isn't it, Paul?
