Paul Ryan is KILLING House RepublicansSubmitted by Ian56 on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 16:15
House Republicans are panicking.
Mitt Romney's decision to name Paul Ryan as his VP has nationalized Ryan's radical right-wing budget. Ryan's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program is front-page news across the country -- and it's killing House Republicans in their reelection campaigns.
Politico reports House Republicans are so panicked that John Boehner had to schedule a major conference call to calm them down.
So, what's the Republican plan to counterattack? Lie about Democrats' plans and try to convince the American public that Republicans are trying to "save" Medicare.
We can't let them get away with that. They're running scared and we need to deliver the knockout punch right now. We need to back up our Dean Dozen candidates -- our 12 top-tier endorsed candidates -- and deliver the resources they need to win.
Ryan's plan to voucherize Medicare was a huge liability for Republicans -- even before Romney named him as VP. Need proof? Just check out these polling numbers we got back last week in four of our Dean Dozen candidates' districts:
Question: If you were faced with the choice of two candidates -- one who supported preserving Medicare and Social Security without any cuts, and one who advocated for transitioning to a privatized voucher system -- for whom would you vote?
CA-10 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 67-15
CO-06 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 59-22
NH-01 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 64-18
PA-08 - Voters would vote for the candidate who would preserve Medicare 67-16
Now that Paul Ryan is on the ticket, the Republican plan to voucherize Medicare is a national news story and a huge political loser for House Republicans.
Simply put: Paul Ryan's plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program puts the House in play.
Thank you for all that you do.

Again if you want to spread this out to a non Ron Paul audience please use the blog link, not daily paul, otherwise it will not be effective.
Maybe the GOP will start waking up to the fact that it won't just be an Obama landslide.
GOP will lose seats right across the country.
Spread the word.
Pick a CONSERVATIVE in Tampa that CAN beat Obama, not a loser like Romney.
