By now you've probably heard the news: Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan as his running mate.
If you believe that billionaires deserve even more tax breaks, that abortion and some forms of birth control should be criminalized, that Medicare should be gutted, and that too many students are able to afford college, then congratulations: the Romney-Ryan ticket is perfect for you!
If not, watch out. Mitt Romney has once again caved to the extreme right of his party, choosing a Tea Party darling willing to push corporate America's agenda at all costs. Even Newt Gingrich called Paul Ryan's plan to end Medicare as we know it "right-wing social engineering."
Make no mistake: this is the Koch brothers' dream ticket.
We only have 87 days left before Americans go to the polls and make a choice about the direction of our country that will affect us for generations. And we're going to use every one of those days to make sure voters understand how dangerous the Romney-Ryan agenda is for all of us!
