As Paul Ryan Says Goodbye, Progressives Say 'Good Riddance' to 'Coward Who Sold Our Economy to Highest Bidders'

Jake Johnson, staff writer

As House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) delivered his farewell address on Wednesday after 20 years of relentlessly working to gut social programs for the poor and successfully ramming through "one of the biggest transfers of wealth to the richest one pe

And after trying to destroy everyone else’s meagre protections, he’ll be “retiring” with a lifelong congressional pension! Is there any word in the English (or other) language strong enough to describe this kind of karmic f-up?


#3

Good riddance to this vile turd.


#4

I like the word, evil. He makes you hope there really is a hell.


#5

Well goodbye to the leader of the one eyed mono cultured cretins.
Question is what are we going to about the one eyed mono cultured cretins?
The low information, follow the biggest dick, bottom feeding, lily livered sheeple?

Simply wait for the next turd blossom?

Throw up your hands in disgust?

Wait for them to look up and see no massive teet or penis to suck on? The planet will be dead by then.

Or get out there and change stuff?

What are you going to do?


#6

Well, Maybe Mr. Ryan will have a heart attack and have one of his kids find him dead in bed, just like he found his own dad. However, his kids and his ghost will be happy that Social Security is still there. : )


#7

Well, probably has earned the little POS a cushy lobbyist position.

Those that believe reincarnation theorize some afterlife villians have no choice but re-life, as an unpredictable option to live life more fully never to remember past error. The JOKE is:
GWBush s reincarnated Mr ‘H’ and Donald s reincarnated Mr. ‘M’, Dolts Pigs.


#9

That POS can burn for all I care. I hope he goes and joins the other heartless reptilians in the underworld.


#10

Not until the Lame Duck session is over will I be confident Paul Ryan has gone.


#11

Probably a job as Charles Koch’s pool boy.


#12

He has been “my” representative, I’ve never voted for the SOB, and am glad to see him go! His replacement will be another Republican, partly because the Democratic party in this state didn’t give the race the seriousness it deserves.


#13

“His replacement will be another Republican” ?

I guess the “blue wave” isn’t very blue.


#14

The blue wave is giving us the blues & making us see red. It is good he’s retiring, I wish Nancy Pelosi would also retire.


#15

Love the Nixon pose, “I’m not a crook”.
Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

I’m certainly in favor of entitlement reform, but the entitlements that I have in mind aren’t the same ones that the Granny starver was thinking of.

I would like to see corporate tax breaks like the oil depletion allowance eliminated. I would like to see the same taxes on all income, not high taxes on earned income and low taxes on capital gains. I would like to see money stashed in off shore bank accounts being taxed at the same rate as Joe Sixpack’s money. I would like to see a mortgage write off only on your primary residence, not your vacation homes. I would like to see Wall St. paying the same sales taxes on their trading that normal people pay on their service bills from their doctors, lawyers, accountants, etc. Those are the entitlements that need reform.

Never has such a shallow callow fellow been heralded as an intellectual policy wonk by a shallow media who couldn’t see that a very dull thinker was nothing but a shill for corporations and the rich. The country is better off without him. Now he can go home and read his Ayn Rand Novels and play with cut out dolls. Activities more fitting to his intellectual abilities.


#18

Ryan not the leader, Ryan the tool, his bosses are not in Congress.


#19

Multiple up-votes.

“The Congress shall have the Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debt and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States […]” - section 8 of the Constitution of the United States of America.

I think Congress, under the direction of people like Paul Ryan (and many before him and nearly all of them currently serving in office) have forgotten a significant portion of that section. Guess they decided somewhere along the way that it sounds too “socialist” or something.
