Congressman Ryan Hides After Trying to Attack Medicare in San Francisco

From Don Bechler of Single Payer Now

Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) came to SF on May 24 to raise funds for his attacks on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Gay Marriage. He is the point person for the 1% attacks on our social investments. He was scheduled to speak at the GAP headquarters, but the GAP told him to move his fundraiser after massive outrage by the gay and healthcare communities.

He then cancelled his fundraiser at the GAP.

Activists from the California Alliance for Retired Americans, Gray Panthers, and Single Payer Now held a press conference at the GAP headquarters to denounce his attacks. We got coverage in both the San Francisco Chronicle and on KPFA radio.
