Let Paul Ryan drink burgundy

Posted By on Mon, Jul 11, 2011 at 6:44 AM

Symbolism is a bitch. Funny report on Rep. Paul Ryan, who says it's time for poor folks to suffer by dismantling of our existing Medicare system. He was spied enjoying $700 worth of fancy French burgundy at a posh D.C. restaurant the other night. Two hours of tippling at a cost more than gross pay for a couple working at minimum wage.

He was called down in the restaurant by an outraged diner.

Who was Ryan swilling with? For one, an angry hedge fund manager who doesn't like Obama's politics. (But he does like Republicans' insistence on keeping the incredible tax preference wealthy hedge fund managers enjoy in the tax code.)
