The $15 ticket seems pretty cheap as compared to $30,400 for one ticket to obamas birthday party.
"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
It's no question what Paul Ryan (R-WI-1) has been up to. It's also disgusting what he's doing to his constituents (no free and open town halls, locking unemployed constituents out of his Kenosha office, $15/plate constituent dinner in lieu of town halls). As Thom pointed out on his show, my congressional representative Paul Ryan is for sale, and you are going to love this!
I work for a company that has given well to Rep Ryan over his years in Congress. This company isn't even in his district, but while close to his district, happens to employ a number of employees who he supposedly represents. I happen to be a "member" of my company's employee PAC, just so I can get the e-mails and invitations to member only events.
Guess what? It should come as no surprise that while he will treat his unemployed constituents with disregard, those with jobs and/or money are more than welcome to meet and talk with him! He's coming to my company as a special guest to discuss issues related to my company's industry and I even get a private meet/greet with the all-mighty himself.
There's a Q&A section after his "public" remarks, and I want a gotcha question. Here's what I ask of the incredibly smart Thom Hartmann listeners: How do I craft a question that will trip up prince Paul while not having some management take a keen look at me and possibly lose my job? What are your suggestions? How would you handle a question in this scenario?
