PR12X The Paul Ryan Workout. Athletic prowess Stretch of the Truth. Economic Squash the numbers. Deficit Hawk Twist of the Record.
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’.
