Favola: Ryan Pick Proves Romney is 'Out of Touch'

State senator critical of Wisconsin representative's proposed reforms of social safety net programs.

Virginia state Sen. Barbara Favola, D-Arlington, said this weekend that Republican Mitt's Romney's proved Romney was "out of touch."

"Paul Ryan has a definite record — and it's a record of severe and harsh cuts to programs that our elderly have always depended on," Favola told Patch at the Arlington County Fair.

Favola criticized Ryan's approach to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, saying, "His budget removes the safety net for seniors."

"It's just another example of Romney being out of touch," she said. "Virginians, and Americans, want more government than Governor Romney realizes or appreciates."

This is the same Barbara Favola who opposed affordable housing when she was on the County Board, taxed seniors out of their homes to pay for vanity projects, and had DHS relocated because she and Mary Hynes didn't want poor people in their nearby neighborhoods?
