It’s hard to understand how Ryan’s record could ever be twisted to make him look like a deficit hawk.-He voted for both Bush tax cuts, Medicare part D, wars in Afghanistan, and even a Bush stimulus, NONE of which were paid for.-He also voted for the ‘sequestration’, but somehow claims he didn’t. -He’s not a hawk, he’s a deficit HACK. If there’s a Republican in the white house, deficits are just no big deal. If there’s a Democrat, those same deficits are the worst thing in the world, grounds for impeachment, and the ruination of us all.-He’s supposedly the big Republican budget wonk, but when his work is examined, his response is that Willard’s budget will be used, not his, even though Willard doesn’t have one. -When his numbers are questioned, he says, ‘Well, we haven’t run the numbers yet.’ Maybe some other ‘fiscal conservative’ can spell out the wisdom of making up a budget without ‘running the numbers’.
