As we’ve covered in K is for Karma, Congressman and presumptive Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan has a bit of a stimulus problem. Over the last few years, he has decried stimulus spending as “waste” yet he seems to have little problem wasting money in his Wisconsin district.
This weekend Chris Hayes revealed that Mr. Ryan hasn’t always been opposed to Stimulus spending, or even Keynsian economics. On Up with Chris, this little gem of C-Span video was uncovered…
As Chris Hayes recently mentioned on his show Up With Chris Hayes, Mitt Romney seems to have quite the faulty memory about his ability to profit from and exploit tax-payer funds. This ABC news report shows Romney downright boastful of how much federal money he was able to procure for the Salt Lake City games. As much as he would like to state otherwise, Romney receieved more than $1 Billion dollars in federal funds.
“I’m a big believer in getting money (from) where the money is. And the money’s in Washington.”
Yet this is guy running around the country touting his private experience, and saying that he didn’t have to rely on government for help?? Give me a break.
If lying were an Olympic event, Mr. Romney would certainly win the gold. And then ship it to the Caymans for “safe-keeping”.
