Paul Ryan's Medicare Plan Will Hurt Old People; Paul Ryan's Security Guys HAVE Hurt Old People

In 2011, 71-year-old retired plumber Tom Nielsen was tackled and arrested after disturbing a luncheon where Paul Ryan was explaining his plans to cut Social Security and Medicare.

As Mr. Nielsen was being handcuffed (despite telling police he had a broken shoulder), Paul Ryan dropped a hilarious, totally classy zinger: "I hope he's taken his blood pressure medication!"

That's funny because if Paul Ryan had his way, Tom Nielsen wouldn't be able to afford it.


Paul Ryan: “Most of our debt in the future comes from our entitlement programs.”
Senior citizen: “Hey. I paid into that for 50 years, my unemployment and my Social Security and my Medicare, and now you’re gonna…” [At this point you hear the police who are dragging him out shouting, “on the ground, on the ground.”]
Paul Ryan: “I hope he’s taken his blood-pressure medication!” [laughs]
