Saying GOP obstructs makes the GOP base happy and accomplishes little. Saying GOP will harm you and showing how is better.

Ryan put politics before country, killed bipartisanship and risked a worse economic depression.  

"Mr. Ryan drew a blueprint for a government that would be absent when people needed it the most" 

So Ayn Rand needed medicare and Saul Alinsky was a normal American and in death they become political footballs.
