Romney Goes All-In Against the Middle Class by Picking Paul Ryan as VP Running Mate

Mitt Romney has decided to go all-in against the middle class by selecting Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate. Ryan is the author of the infamous budget plan that decimates the middle class, turns Medicare into a voucher program, and yet increases spending on Defense contractors and other corporate giveaways.

Not surprisingly, Paul Ryan has been bankrolled by the billionaire Koch brothers, whose lobbying arms fund and organize the tea party. So it’s no big surprise that the Romney Ryan plan increases middle class taxes in order to pay for more tax breaks for the super-rich and increases the debt.

Perfect. Democrats will love it.

At least Romney has made clear that he thinks giving more chances for the 1% to hide their money offshore and allowing more loopholes for the supercorporations to ship jobs and money overseas will somehow, despite history and logic, create the jobs that they haven’t created during all this time to date.

What does the Ryan pick mean for the campaigns?

Ezra Klein at the Washington Post captures this nicely…

This is an admission of fear from the Romney campaign.

Let the games begin.

    • Perhaps. What they really want is to allow the super-rich to do whatever they want in the bizarre hope that they will change their behavior and do the opposite of what they usually do.
