“It’s outrageous what [Paul Ryan] just said! He is inciting civil war! That’s what he’s doing.
You take his comments, and you see exactly what they mean. It’s almost as if Republicans want violence to take place in our society.”
“I’m not afraid to say that Paul Ryan’s budget is a threat to our country. Paul Ryan’s budget would knock out more critical infrastructure than Al Qaeda ever dreamed of.”

“The only real things in [Paul Ryan’s budget] were savage cuts in aid to the needy and the uninsured, huge tax cuts for corporations and the rich, and Medicare privatization. All the alleged cost savings were pure fantasy.”
