Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Florida) slammed House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and his budget cuts ideas on Tuesday night (video below).

According to CNN.com, Rep. Ryan Ryan’s budget would repeal Obamacare, partially privatize Medicare, cut spending on food stamps, lower the corporate tax rate and cut Social Security.

While discussing Rep. Ryan's budget proposal on Current TV, Rep. Grayson accused the former vice presidential candidate of wanting poor Americans to die, reports RawStory.com.

“In one case after another, you look at his principles, you look at his vision, and they’re a nightmare for America,” Rep. Grayson said. “He wants Americans to work until they die, he wants poor people who get sick not be able to see a doctor, not to get the care they need, not to get better, he wants them to die, and he wants an America that consists of nothing but cheap labor for his corporate patrons.”

“Paul Ryan believes that Social Security is unconstitutional. Just like anyone who follows the writings of Ayn Rand would believe. If you read the Fountianhead, if you read similar fiction, although they don’t regard it as fiction, you come to the conclusion that these are people who believe government itself, anything that does anything for people other than defend the borders, is fundamentally immoral and unconstitutional.”
