Paul Ryan Will Retire as the Biggest Fake in American Politics

If he hadn't done so much damage, we could laugh him off the national stage—like Joe Biden did.

By Charles P. Pierce

Aprill 11, 2018

This would include, of course, “reforming,” probably out of existence, the Social Security survivor’s benefits that got him through high school and college before he could line up at the federal trough for the rest of his adult life.

This has always been particularly disturbing to me. I'm really glad Charlie remembered to mention this. It reminds me of another conservative stuffed shirt millionaire named Rick Perry, who also never held a job outside politics until after he left the Texas governorship. He immediately did GET a job though, afterward, lobbying for MCNA, the same Medicaid Big Insurance Corp for whom he'd just abandoned single payer, to "reform" Medicaid dental services in Texas. 

Let's play a game:

"Which conduit scheme will hire Paul Ryan to be their lobbyist".

Get your entries in soon. I expect the competition will be over before the 2018 calendar is out-of-date.

Even in his press conference on Wednesday, Ryan expressed disappointment that, in his two decades in Congress, he didn’t get to fully gut Medicaid and Social Security

As a lobbyist, he'll have much more time to write the language of bills going before Congress, once all that pesky, constant Republican fund-raising doesn't consume so much of his valuable time.

Well said. 

I think Ryan took the road out because he knew that the Progressive challenging (Iron worker Bryce) would destroy him, thereby eliminating any chance Ryan would ever have to get into the White house.

That said, the lobbyist gig is certainly what he will be jump into with all his corrupt and corrupting government connections.

Ryan is an example of people. like the Ayn Rand witch, who hypocritically use social services even though they try to destroy them.

There are too many people in the USA with exactly that type of destructive attitude. My millionaire greed ball sister Jeanette, the one who was married to John Adair, the dentist that drowned in Puerto Rico (I almost drowned trying to fish him out of the rip tide and monstrous surf) fits that bill exactly.

John had a thriving dental practice in Ft. Lauderdale.  Jeanette got $250,000 in life insurance and went to work as a registered nurse (she had been studying that as a mother of three boys). She gladly took ALL the care for child survivers money Social Security gave her for her children while she used the big bucks from the life insurance to invest in the stock market in 1982.

By 1989 she was rich. Her son Brian became a stock broker in 1990. By the year 2000 he too was a millionaire (He has a nice condo in San Francisco near his yacht). They are ALL right wing crazies now. They ALL want to destroy Social Security and Medicare. They have ALL conveniently forgotten that they would be NOWHERE if these programs hadn't been there when they were middle class.

This is why I carry on so much about Capitalist cruelty, Eddie. The hypocrisy is so thick you can cut it with a knife! And yeah, my sister was front and center in all the successful efforts to legally steal my inheritance. These bastards that get rich NEVER HAVE ENOUGH!

Ryan is an enemy of every decent human being on this planet. Some, if not all, of my siblings and their offspring are in exactly the same category. 😟
