Over the last few days, I’ve gotten a real life view of what a Romney-Ryan world would actually look like – and it’s not a pretty picture.
The choice between President Obama and Mitt Romney became even more stark today with the selection of Paul Ryan as Romney’s Vice President. From Mitt Romney, the message is clear: Millionaires over Medicare.
In choosing Ryan, Mitt Romney has now doubled down in support of an extreme economic plan, clearly spelled out in the controversial Republican budget that Paul Ryan authored, that takes from the poor and middle class and further enriches the wealthiest Americans. President Obama has called this “Robinhood in Reverse…Romneyhood.”

Every election cycle I endorse candidates that share my vision of Progressive Democratic politics, I hope you consider joining me in supporting these wonderful candidates.
President of the United States: Barack Obama Evanston Referenda:
Every penny of this plan must go to a job -- not to a tax incentive in the hopes that somebody creates a job. This two-year jobs program will help get the economy up and running again while investing in critical areas of our nation’s infrastructure. The New York Times said in an Editorial this week that this plan is an idea worth fighting for.
