All Lyin'

Welcome to the House
Paul Ryan.

Perhaps being Mitt Romney's protege
during the 2012 elections

has taught you
valuable lessons

about working with people.

Let it be said

that more than 47 percent
of your people

are dependent
on the government

and you can't
count on them

to take responsibility
for their own lives

nor unfortunately
unlike with most irresponsible folks

can you count
on them
to vote for you.
