    WhereDoLoyaltiesLIE: Question for Congressman Ryan

     
    This question is for congressman Ryan:

    David and Charles Koch, billionaire brothers, who have long believed in the merits of privatizing social security, have donated to five of your campaigns to keep your house seat in Wisconsin. The Koch brothers stand to gain billions if your view of social security privatization is voted into law, because then employers will no longer have to pay half of the social security tax, it will be fully burdened on the employee.

    On July 22nd David Koch held a fundraiser for Romney where he pledged $100 million more to elect Governor Romney as a result of him selecting you as his running mate. These are the same brothers who promised this election would be “the mother of all wars”.

    Congressman Ryan, please explain as the potential VP how do the motivations of these two individuals who have donated 100’s of millions of dollars towards your political career, measure up in terms of importance to the ideals and motivations of two average citizens, such as my wife and I? Our wallets are not nearly as thick but we have just as much of a right to a voice in this country, and an ear that doesn’t have to be paid to listen.
