Today was a great day for blogging. Today there was a lot of material for the Liberal brethren to feel proud about. Good reporters, good journalists, and good Democrats have been pushing back against Republican hypocrisy. They did so with fact based and easy to understand commentary and arguments. These are stories that should be shared widely. These are stories ripe for thinking Republicans as well.
Chris Hayes has a report that needs to be out in wide distribution. He illustrates that Obamacare is no different than what Paul Ryan is proposing for the privatization of Medicare (Ryancare). What is ironic is that while Obamacare is taking the country one step closer to single payer (Medicare for all), Paul Ryan wants to move Medicare to the private sector with ‘strict regulations’. Obamacare is a step forward. Ryancare is a step backward. They would ironically end up in the same place.
Regular readers have been well aware of Paul Ryan’s plan similarity to Obamacare. Unfortunately, very few reports have been done on this in the traditional media at large.
Paul Ryan Supports Obamacare?
Everyone knows all politicians lie and mislead to some extent. It comes with the territory. Republicans ability to do so consistently is better than most. Nothing deters their message. It matters not that people are harmed. It matters not that the country is hurt. It does not matter that the economy is damaged. Ideology reigns. It is for that reason one must get around their spin and get access to their voters.
