Paul Ryan is KILLING House Republicans

http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/ryan-is-killing-house-re...

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.

I rather die than vote for Romney and Ryan.

RON PAUL! That's it! No discussion.

Neocon supporters need things

Neocon supporters need things like this rubbed in their face. Maybe they will wake up to how much they've been conned by those they support.

Bump.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Why

Are you spreading liberal propoganda on the Daily Paul? This is a fundraising letter for Progressive Democrat canidates for crying out loud. BTW if you were an individualist believing conservative you'd welcome a voucher system as that is a step back toward limited government. It also makes good fiscal sense, but that is beside the point.

I am trying to get Ron Paul NOMINATED

by getting GOP to understand they will get wiped out with Romney/Ryan.

Wake up and smell the coffee.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."
