Lyin' Ryan Loses The Senior Citizens' Vote

On Friday afternoon, Lyin' Ryan was out a-lying to some members of the AARP in New Orleans, trying to sell them the usual crap about how Romneycare wouldn't hurt them, which is, of course, utter nonsense. Romneycare would nail senior citizens for thousands of dollars each year, forcing many to chose between medicine or having a home.

The seniors weren't buying any of it, and per Think Progress, were openly calling Ryan a "liar" and told him to "go home."

Think Progress also provided us with this video showing exactly the way Lyin' Ryan's lies went over:

And that was before Ryan could even tell them how he swam out to the Bahamas just before the speech.

Perhaps the best commentary on Lyin' Ryan's flop is the person who will be taking his congressional seat after the election, Rob Zerban, who issued this release after the news came out:
“Paul Ryan’s speech to the AARP yesterday shows seniors aren't buying into Ryan's snake oil salesman routine. Even after countless independent news organizations debunked Ryan’s lie about President Obama’s Medicare record, Ryan repeated the same outrageous claims simply to scare voters and cover up his indefensible budget plan. But the facts are simple: Paul Ryan would end Medicare as we know it and force seniors to pay an extra $6,500 per year out of their own pockets—while President Obama has consistently protected it. Voters know Ryan is trying to balance the budget on the backs of our seniors, and that’s why he was repeatedly booed yesterday.”
Is it any wonder why Ryan is afraid to show his face back in his district and try to debate Zerban. The way Zerban would take Ryan to task would make Ryan think the senior citizens were warm and weldoming.

That is why Ryan is using the lucre he has gotten from his multimillionaire buddies to try to buy the election. Which is why we need to help Zerban out. Learn how at his website.
