LETTER: Romney, Ryan Will Work to Make the Rich, Richer

Elizabeth Warren: "Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are a demolition team that will wreck our economy and leave working people and small businesses to struggle in the mess."

U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren released the following statement on the selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as the Republican nominee for Vice President:

"For years now, America’s working families have been getting hammered, and Mitt Romney just picked up a bigger hammer.  The Ryan Budget is a plan to hit families, seniors, our kids harder — all so that millionaires and billionaires can get more tax breaks. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are a demolition team that will wreck our economy and leave working people and small businesses to struggle in the mess.

"The choice is clear. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will work to make the rich and powerful, richer and more powerful. I’m standing with President Obama to work for our families, to invest in our kids, and to give our small businesses a fighting chance to succeed because I believe that’s how we build a strong foundation for our future."

I don't understand Warren's rhetoric. Obama and his team have not turned around anything but they have kept spending. Small and large businesses are struggling under increased government regulations and uncertainly created by more government. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are what we need for leadership to turn around the economy, get people working, and off the government dole.

Get people working! Doing what? There are NO jobs. Once you understand that the U.S. makes nothing anymore and is a welfare country you will see it's pretty much lost. Jim@ccfiile.com

It's a little too late...let Romney/Ryan or Obama touch Medicare and Social Security and see what happens. Doctors and Hospitals are overcharging Medicare. There need to be tighter controls on the medical billing practices. Also, lowering income taxes is not going to make the deficit any better, we are at 100% GDP on debt. The kicking the can forward has created a big mess for all of us. The last budget surplus was during the Clinton administration and Bush I & II gobbled it up with 2 wars for oil, then the bankers scare tactics and theft took another big chunk. Look at the budget for next year and see where all the money is going, look at what is being spent on defense and even cutting all the defense budget the US still needs to borrow money.
