  1. IT seems that paul ryan is a typical republican hypocrite. he wants to cut spending for the other guy but has his hand out for all he can get for himself:

    Ryan sought stimulus funds while decrying program
    JANESVILLE, Wis. — In 2009, as Representative Paul Ryan was railing against President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package as a “wasteful spending spree,” he wrote at least four letters to Obama’s secretary of energy asking that millions of dollars from the program be granted to a pair of Wisconsin conservation groups, according to documents obtained by The Globe.

    The advocacy appeared to pay off; both groups were awarded the economic recovery funds — one receiving a $20 million grant to help thousands of local businesses and homes improve their energy efficiency, agency documents show.

    Ryan’s letters to the energy secretary praising the energy initiatives as he sought a portion of the funding are in sharp contrast to the House Budget Committee chairman’s image as a Tea Party movement favorite adamantly opposed to federal spending on such programs.

    Ryan’s views are garnering new attention since his selection Saturday as Mitt Romney’s running mate.

    Attacking Ryan for spending stimulus funds once the bill was already passed is bullshit, once Paul Ryan knows that the Stimulus is going to be spent anyways, he has a duty to the taxpayers in his district to get as much of it as possible, because they are on the hook for it anyways.

    I:ts not like If Paul Ryan didnt try to procure some of the funds they were just going back into the treasury.

    Im sure most people would have gladly let themselves off the hook for their part of that garbage bill but thats not the way it works.
