WisGOP tax plan not Koo-Kooky for roads, but regressive garbage for everything else

From Political Heat

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is having a tough time selling his healthcare proposal.

Why didn't Democrats toss off tea party protesters as paid off lackey's of the Koch brothers who opposed the Affordable Care Act? 
Why didn't Democrats brush off complaints about climate change as the last gasps of industry special interests willing to say anything? 
Democrats never denounce anything or predict failure and disaster over pending Republican legislation. It actually gives everyone the impression Republicans have a legitimate argument to make.
