The Ants Go Marching One By One

Republicans went ahead with Paul Ryan's plan to have everyone hate them…err, end Medicare, despite the fact that it polled terribly and has only gotten worse for them.   “The tea party itch has definitely not been scratched, so the voices who were saying, ‘Let’s do this in a way…
