Paul Ryan's "Path to Prosperity" relabelled as "emergency toilet paper"

Paul Ryan is lost, lonely and angry on his "Path to Prosperity". 
He has lost his way and claiming that it's all other people's fault.  WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 25:  House of  Representa...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Recent Paul Ryan statements:

“The president and his party have decided to shamelessly distort and demagogue Medicare,”

“It’s a preview of the scare tactics, distortions, demagoguery, to try and scare seniors,”

He's not going to get away with it.  What kind of politician bundles  the elimination of medicare with even lower taxes for the wealthy and corporations?  Obviously, to Paul Ryan poor people have too much money and they need to spend more of it on medical care so that rich people can have bigger yachts.

But the reality is that the Ryan plan is turning into a political disaster for Republicans, not because the plan’s critics are lying about it, but because they’re describing it accurately. Take, for example, the statement that the Ryan plan would end Medicare as we know it. This may have Republicans screaming “Mediscare!” but it’s the absolute truth...
The new program might still be called Medicare ... but it wouldn’t be the same program. And ... the ... vouchers — which by 2030 would cover only about a third of seniors’ health costs — would leave many if not most older Americans unable to afford essential care.
If anyone is lying here, it’s Mr. Ryan himself, who has claimed that his plan would give seniors the same kind of coverage that members of Congress receive — an assertion that is completely false. ...

Paul Ryan's "Path to Prosperity", is only a path of lower taxes for the wealthy and a path to the poorhouse and diminished care for 98% of Americans

Warning: this video shows a Paul Ryan look alike throwing grandma off the cliff.
