Paul Ryan's plan to kill Medicare is killing the Tea Party Republican majority in the House.
Right-wingers are running scared as poll after poll shows the vast majority of Americans oppose any cuts to Medicare -- and now Republicans are falling behind in a special election in the most Republican congressional district in New York.
This is a Republican district -- Barack Obama won New York State by 25 points in 2008 and still lost District 26.
Now, Democrat Kathy Hochul's grassroots campaign has pulled ahead in the polls and the Republican establishment is throwing everything they have at her. Just yesterday, Karl Rove's shady corporate front group American Crossroads announced they were dropping $650,000 into the district to prop up the right-wing Republican candidate.
Republicans took a majority saying they were going to create jobs. Instead, all they've done is attack American women, students, seniors and the poor -- and the American people are sick of it.
The only thing that can beat big corporate is people power -- Please, contribute $10 to Kathy's grassroots campaign right now and deliver a knock-out punch to a right-wing Republican in a red district.
