Ryan at CPAC

'Paul Ryan need only go to Wall Street - or, for that matter, through the walkways of National Harbor, the shiny new suburban Washington enclave where the CPAC conference was being held - to find "full stomachs and empty souls" - where Americans pick up the lunch tab for some of the very banksters who drove the country into financial disaster and recession. If conservatives prefer full stomachs in corporate boardrooms to full stomachs in America’s classrooms, they are the one’s with "empty souls".'

Terrance Heath, online producer at
Campaign for America's Future,
in response to Rep. Paul Ryan's remark
Thursday to the convention of the
the Conservative Political Action Conference
about school lunches accusing
"the left" of offering Americans
"a full stomach and an empty soul."
