Seniors and Kids tell Paul Ryan, Don’t Pick on Us!

Yesterday morning at 10:00 a.m. central time, seniors and parents gathered in Congressman Paul Ryan’s “backyard,” at Blackhawk Technical College in Janesville, WI, to let him know his budget was good for neither seniors nor kids (nor anyone in between, for that matter).

Congressman Mark Pocan, whose district abuts Ryan’s but whose philosophy couldn’t be further removed, spoke to the crowd, noting that ¾ of the deficit is caused by economic weakness—unemployment and underemployment—and not by social security, medicare, and the other safety net programs threatened by the Ryan budget, saying “We need to get people back to work to solve the budget issues.”
