  • Ryan budget passes. Nice life it had. Hopefully enough to start the process of broadly exposing the GOP 's collaboration with the rich. #
  • Steele keeps talking about GOP "trying to put 'mechanisms' in place that would control costs that were rejected by Dems. When? What? Nada. #
  • The "answer" from the market has , year after year, to "make more money" by the drivers of that "market": The Insurance Companies. #
  • Free market fundamentalism is a slave to itself. Keeps assuming that there's "an answer out there in the market" #
  • Michael Steele is excruciating. Plan to control Health Care Costs: " Have to look at the market forces that can help drive down costs" Right #

  • @digital_boy yep. Those "non-math" ideazx of those GOPers. They're still holding on to the fantasy that tax cuts create jobs. #
  • "the most vulnerable members of society are being attacked by Ryan & his supporters. This makes them bullies" by @jimwallis. Yes, it does #

  • Republicans are the math deficient ones right now. Talk about your math and not attack as "partisan" those who DO talk about the math. #
  • A real plan actually pays att'tion 2 math, & doesn't seek to deny that they R lifting up those who are the last ones in need of lifting up #
  • Can someone in the media please ask Paul Ryan to actually answer Obama's math instead of resorting to "That's not a plan that's a speech" #
  • Paul Ryan: "“We don’t need partisanship,” Ryan said. “We don’t need demagoguery.” Actually, what we need is facts, which you avoid Mr Ryan #
  • Quit calling Bonds "MLB's homerun king". Nobody recognizes him as such any more. #
  • And of course the GOP taling baby doll Eric Cantor can only say "it raises taxes" and leave it at that. An ideologically impaired brain. #
  • Ryan: "This is not a plan, but a speech". Says the man with the "Heritage-Powered" thing he claims is a plan. What a joke. #

  • Hope we will see a little less DC and much more Madison in Obama today #PeoplesBudget #
  • @MMFlint Maybe we should see what he's going 2 say today. Maybe somebody inpired him 2 finally stand up the way we've wanted. Here's hoping. #
  • I know Obama has not been FOR the GOP plan and their tactics, but I am hoping now that this IS a defining moment for Obama in saying NO #
  • I am strongly desiring and hoping for the beginning of a strong rejection of the insanity of the GOP plan and a resounding NO #
  • I can't remember ever being more anticipatory and nervous about what might be said in a presidential speech thanI am right now re: today's #
  • @davewiner Yes it would. Just hope he doesn't pussy foot it. Say it strong and loud #

  • Listening to Paul Ryan describe his plan (ie."Path to prosperity") makes me feel as if listening to Joel Osteen #
  • @digital_boy the movie therefore would be much less of a drain on time. #
  • @digital_boy i tend not 2 want to read books that seek to teach bad lessons. I 've heard quite enough about it 2 persuade me this one does. #
  • @digital_boy wonderful. All we need now is for them to have a "hero movie" to further fuel their illusions and destructive practices #
