    pbrauer, what was your opinion of the Kennedy's? John Kerry? I'm pretty sure if I were to look up the list of millionaires who spend this kind of money on consumer goods and who are also Congressional Democrats who claim to be 'for the poor" etc. the list would be lengthy...

    Rep. Ryan Tastes The Grapes Of Wrath | TPMDC

    Why are they complaining about what he spent on a bottle of wine when it's his income that enables such spending?

    What kind of ridiculously prudish people spy on what others are eating and drinking and sizes them up - takes pictures- and reports about it? Talk about being all up in other people's business. Ah - no - here it is:

    "It was my birthday, and I'd had half a bottle of great wine with dinner," she wrote in an e-mail to TPM. "I wasn't drunk, but I was certainly emboldened to speak my mind."
    What - she can get tipsy but he can't? If she was sober then maybe she wouldn't have looked like an idiot.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I see. The act of drinking a glass of expensive wine is okay. But don't do it while saving social security. Understood.

    So there go. Again. For you every solution involves raising taxes.
    For me the solution is to steadily, consistently roll back the size, scope and reach of government by repealing regulations to expand business activity. And for the the answer always includes widening the tax base so that everyone pays while flattening the tax rates so that no lone pays too much.

    Both Kennedy and John Kerry were/are wealthy people, plus I don't think they wanted to take money from elderly low income people. But that's precisely what today's GOP wants to do. For all the rhetoric about income redistribution, the GOP is trying to strip the benefits of lower income people and giving it to the high income earners. Rep. Paul Ryan drinking $350 wine is a symbol of it.

    Robert Kennedy Jr. is a liberal progressive. You can hear his views on "ring of Fire" radio show every sat. He makes Obama sound like a RWer! Soo all that BS about class warfare & that liberals hate rich folks is just that BS! There are rch folks who actually have a conscious about social responsibilities.
