New DCCC Video “Paul Ryan’s Fantasy”
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released “Paul Ryan’s Fantasy,” a video that highlights how credible news outlets have universally dismissed the Republican Budget Chairman’s delusional plan to repeal Obamacare. In cynically trying to repeal a law that the Supreme Court ruled Constitutional and that voters affirmed in the 2012 election, House Republicans have reached new lows of dysfunction. With this latest budget, Congressman Ryan and Tea Party House Republicans proved that they aren’t serious about a balanced compromise to reduce our debt - choosing the same budget that ends the Medicare guarantee instead.
“If Congressman Paul Ryan and Tea Party House Republicans were serious about working together, they would offer ideas that can solve problems, not the same policies that Americans rejected in the 2012 election,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Congressman Ryan and Tea Party House Republicans must not have learned their lesson from their 33 failed attempts to repeal Obamacare. It’s a shame that the Tea Party House Republican dysfunction has prevented them from trying to write a budget proposal that incorporates commonsense solutions with a balanced approach. Instead their Tea Party budget demands that seniors and the middle class are the first to pay, while protecting tax breaks for millionaires and Big Oil.”
