Proving once again the old adage: government creates the problem, then volunteers to solve it for you, at a cost of course. The tea party’s latest darling, Paul Ryan – WI, R, takes a swing and a miss on political consistency and the budget.
While better late than never in trying to reduce the size and scope of the budget as well as the deficit, let’s not forget that it was Paul Ryan who was part of the problem in growing government and the deficit. Ryan has supported the 2003 Medicare expansion, the No Child Left Behind Act, TARP, the GM & Chrysler bailouts, and ethanol subsidies. But, hey, NOW it’s a problem, and he’s gonna fix it for you.
