Flashback: Watch Teacher Refuse Award from Paul Ryan

Teacher Al Levie refused to accept an award from Paul Ryan on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2012, saying:

I would not accept the award from Paul Ryan because Paul Ryan is a lackey for the 1 percent. Paul Ryan had no business at a Martin Luther King event — it’s totally hypocritical. On the one hand, he votes to slash health care, while on the other hand, King dedicated his life and he died for it, for people to have adequate healthcare, to have adequate jobs.
