Becca. This legislation was passed by the GOP in Congress including our leaders. . . McConnell, Boehner, Ryan, and others. think of that for a moment. We now have the left and the lefter. The Republicans have acknowledged that the rich NEED to pay higher rates in order to reduce the deficit. They have acknowledged that they could NOT come up with their own plan that makes sense. They refused to pass Plan B. This gave me pause to re-examine Ryan's record. It is not what I thought. . . .he has voted FOR almost $10 Trillion in spending and taxation. With these kinds of friends, who needs enemies?
