“I hope he took his blood pressure medication today,” said Republican Rep. Paul Ryan as a 71 year-old man as the man was being pushed to the ground and handcuffed by police officers during Ryan’s recent “pay to play” town hall meeting. The man’s crime? He dared to speak his mind in opposition to Rep. Ryan’s shameful attacks on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

The fact that Paul Ryan seems to think it’s funny to crack jokes about 71 year-olds who are being arrested for daring to speak out against him at a town hall he charged admission to is simply disgusting, and Paul Ryan should be ashamed of himself.
What a role model Ryan is for his children. “See kids, it’s okay to make jokes about senior citizens as they’re being pushed to the ground and arrested by the police, because it’s funny to make fun of old people!”
