Palm Beach County Tea Party Director Quits After Chairman Rags on Rep. Paul Ryan

Standing up for what you believe in apparently isn't in the South Florida Tea Party manifest.

Pam Wohlschlegel -- the director of the Palm Beach County chapter of the South Florida Tea Party -- called it quits after Chairman Everett Wilkinson declared House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan's Medicare plan a "public policy nightmare," the Palm Beach Post reports.

Most of the other political nutcases support Ryan's Medicare overhaul, like Sen. Mark Rubio, and Reps. Allen West and Michele Bachmann.

Wilkinson, however, was looking at the 2012 election when he told South Florida Tea Party followers not to put faith into Ryan's plan.

"Republicans will lose if they support the Ryan Medicare plan," Wilkinson said in an email last week. "Americans do not support the Ryan plan ... Expect the GOP to then blame the Tea Party for losses."

That was apparently the last straw for Wohlschlegel, who doesn't think Wilkinson is running the show correctly.

"If it were my organization, I would not speak for the organization without taking a poll and I don't necessarily think that his positions on such things as E-Verify and his latest position on Paul Ryan, I don't think it necessarily reflects the feelings of all the members of the organization," she told the Post.

It'll be interesting to see if more people start to buck the South Florida Tea Party, as the debate over Ryan's Medicare plan seems to have started a rift.

It's probably safe to say many in Florida -- Tea Party followers or not -- don't want Ryan fiddling with their Medicare.

Ryan proposed his budget to cut $5.8 trillion from the federal budget over the next decade, but his Medicare overhaul would force seniors to pay double for out-of-pocket expenses on healthcare.

It would shift toward privatizing health insurance to replace Medicare by 2022 with a voucher system, which the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicts it wouldn't be any cheaper, and would cost more to seniors.

Ryan created the issue that the Dems will run on in 2012. Obama may in fact be one of the few Presidents who is able to win reelection while the economy was suffering so badly. For decades now, it is sacrilege to fuck with Social Security in such a dramatic manner. All they need to do is tweak it a little to take into account greater life expectancy, and consider means testing it. That alone would stabilize the program for 75+ years. Asking seniors to contribute so much towards their medical bills would likely collapse the economy. South Florida, in particular, would suffer greatly, due to the decreased spending in the senior citizen sector. (Restaurants, movie theaters, etc; would all suffer.)

Conservatives have been saying for decades that Social Security is on the brink of bankruptcy. It simply is not true, but that never stopped these dullards from repeatring nonsense that is fed to them by Fat Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, et al.  

I have been saying since day one that the teabats will divide the Republican party and hand the Congress back to the Dems in 2012, with Obama keeping the White House.

Thank you teabats! 

Keep up the great work, you mongoloids.

Oh and now that your buddy Bob Norman has left for "greener" pastures, I am back to being on the front pages of the New Times.

You?   Relegated to commentary.   Just commentary.   No wonder you're so jealous.

Considering I never officially filed my papers, the fact that I didn't get elected isn't a shocker.

However I did make the evening news (many times).   The front page of the Miami Herald.   A national award named after me.   Three elected officials arrested and removed from office.  The Deerfield Beach PHA is under numerous investigations because of me.   So forth and so on.

Tell me, what have you done?   Besides hone your Trolling skills?

Hey douche bag. Are your arms long enough to pat yourself on the back? Anyway, you couldn't get elected in Deerfield to the commission. So how influential and respected are you? Just sayin.

You beat the trolls to it. If calling bullshit is "liberal," I suppose I'm changing political philosophies.
