    Congressman Paul Ryan is not as conservative as some Republicans believe.


    Ryan’s 91.69% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union (ACU) is impressive, but his record includes some big liberal votes.

    He voted for the bailouts of the automobile industry and Wall Street, including the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).

    Earlier in his career, Ryan voted for most of the big-government initiatives of the Bush era and played a leadership role in passing the unfunded Medicare prescription drug benefit, which has added about $50 Billion each year to the national debt.

    Ryan also voted for Congressman Barney Frank’s Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), to force private employers, including schools and day care centers, to hire open homosexuals.

    As chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan produced a plan that would not balance the budget until 2040.

    And Ryan was one of only 4 Republicans in the House to vote against HR 2, a constitutional amendment to require a balanced federal budget.

    If Mitt Romney and Ryan are elected, conservatives should not get their hopes up too high on what they will actually do in office on economic and social issues.

    A new Gallup Poll found that Romney received no “bounce” nationally from the selection of Ryan to be his vice presidential running mate, but Romney appears to have now taken the lead in three key states.

    Another Gallup Poll has found only 10% of voters approve of the job Congress is doing—which ties an all-time low.

    What is laughable is that you expect us to vote for Obama with his record than than Ryan with his record? That is like suggesting soemone hold a revolver to their head and saying, "go ahead, shoot. It won't hurt."

    I do however admire you for your consistency in being the Democratic mouth piece on RJ. That takes conviction.

    Dems are to large degree bought and paid for just as the Republicans are, but at least the Dems aren't totally on the side of their rich elite funders as are the Repubs. The other major difference is the Repubs use of Religion to gain the Christian Fundi 'Usefull Idiots' blind backing.


    We'd be far better off with a vibrant third party with some combination of Ron Pauls foreign Policy Ideas, some real conservative budgeting rather than the bush kind that spent us into oblivian on wars and some liberal live and let live as well as social programs/education for all. But we are stuck between only two parties, and the least of the evils between them are the Dems.

    JackBlair69 saidRyan slaps down that stupid bitch from The Nation:



    Ryan is a sleazoid! Insurance companies deny people all the time and without a public option people will die of treatable diseases.

    And yet Obama will appoint his 15 member non-medical review commitee to oversee Obamacare and deny people of coverage and medical benefits and have government control your medical needs. This is ok to you? Obama and his death panel will be sleaze
