Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) reported being the victim of a minor assault outside the Capitol Wednesday night.

The congressman told U.S. Capitol Police he was walking from the Longworth House Office Building for votes when “a random individual, unknown to the congressman, began screaming at him and grabbed his arm,” according to Duffy’s spokeswoman.

Why is Wyden supporting Ryan’s Medicare voucher proposal?

Why would Ron Wyden cooperate with Paul Ryan in this effort to defuse the Democrats’ strategy of using the premium support vote against the Republicans? It is because he is more supportive of his own previous proposal for health care reform than he is for the Democrats to prevail in the next election. His Healthy Americans Act that he pushed throughout the reform process called for an individual mandate to purchase private plans, shifting the tax benefit from employers to individuals (a concept included in this white paper). He has said that Democrats want universal coverage, Republicans want choice, and his plan, and now the Ryan-Wyden proposal, would enable both.

The problem for single payer supporters is that this is a digression that shoves the concept of an improved Medicare for all further into the background. The substance of the debate will be over converting the Medicare Advantage plan into a voucherized program competing on price. Single payer supporters will not be welcome participants in that debate, nor should we.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) says students should just get 3 jobs to pay for college instead of using Pell Grants
Tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations? That’s a-ok! Why are students complaining? Working 3 jobs to pay back student loans is the American dream.

I think what Ryan (WI-07) is saying is “Fuck You and the space you’re occupying.”
What I’d like to see is if Jerry Sanders makes a difference between himself and not cold, not indifferent but sociopathic statements made by Ryan and pull the SDPD off of the back of Occupy San Diego.

Town Hall Constituents Face Off With Sean Duffy Over Killing Medicare (by ThinkProgress2)

Why is Congressman MTV Boi Duffy so tone deaf? It might have something to do with him sucking Koch for a total of $10,000.

Upton Sinclair said it best:

It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his job depends on not understanding it.
