ThinkProgress » Paul Ryan’s Plan To End Medicare Stirs Anger At Pennsylvania Town Hall Event: "Yesterday, Scott Keyes reported that Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) effort to sell his budget proposal was not going over well with conservative constituents in his district. During a town hall meeting in Milton, attendees booed Ryan for rejecting the notion that the top income earners should be taxed more.thinkprogress. The GOP has been taken over by the fossil-fuel industry and is now the Gas and Oil Party. They have bankrupted us with the auto-sprawl system, and now want to take away medical coverage so they will have more money to fuel traffic jams and parking lots and to fight energy wars in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Caspian Sea region. The USA is NOT Broke! There is plenty of money. It is all concentrated in the hands of a very small number of people.
Last night, Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) received a similarly hostile reception from constituents during a public forum in Carbon County, as he tried to (incorrectly) reassure the group that Ryan’s budget would not affect the Medicare benefits of those over the age of 55."
