The leftist mob is getting more extremist and desperate by the day…
Radical socialist Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) led a protest against Paul Ryan outside his town hall meeting yesterday.
Real classy, Donna.
Of course, she completely lied about Ryan’s Medicare plan. She is an elected democrat, after all.
The Hill reported:
In a rare move for a member of Congress, Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) led a protest Monday outside a town-hall meeting featuring House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).
Ryan joined Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), and Gov. Nikki Haley (S.C.) for a taping of a town-hall meeting to be broadcast on CBS, at the Newseum in Washington.
“No to Ryan, Yes to Medicare!” Edwards and several dozen protesters chanted.
The American Federation of Government Employees, The National Association of Letter Carriers, Americans United for Change and Planned Parenthood were among the groups protesting the House-passed 2012 budget, authored by Rep. Ryan.
That plan would transform Medicare for those currently under 55 years old into a sort of voucher system that would be used in the private insurance market once they reach retirement. The system now a single-payer system for seniors.
Edwards said that to control the deficit, taxes must be raised on the wealthy and subsidies for oil- and-gas companies must be eliminated before any reforms to Medicare are discussed.
