Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) got fed marshmallows on Morning Joe as he came on to preview the GOP's April Fool's joke known as their alternative budget proposal.
This thing should be delivered in a classic vinyl LP cover, because it is all of their greatest hits...Drill Baby Drill, Consumer Based Health Care, Laying off Droves of Government Workers, Juice Our Defense Spending, and their all time favorite...Tax Cuts for the Wealthy.
