Paul Ryan: “We’re Not Going to Give Up on Destroying the Health Care System’

Jed Lewison over at DailyKos posted an interesting tidbit yesterday from Paul Ryan’s budget plan news conference. I won’t belabor the point – here’s the video: 

In case you can’t view the video, here’s the transcript of the seven seconds of Paul Ryan’s life he’ll be hearing over and over in Democratic campaign ads for the foreseeable future:

This to us is something that we’re not going to give up on, because we’re not going to give up on destroying the health care system for the American people.

What was Ryan thinking? On top of his campaign to roll back Obamacare, Ryan has also backtracked on his Medicare claims. This latest gaffe will only serve to highlight how unfit he really was to lead in an executive capacity – and quite possibly in a congressional one as well.
