    Congressman Ryan and the GOP Voted to Cut US Embassy Security

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican, said Wednesday he "absolutely" voted for cutting funding for embassy security.

    While speaking to CNN, Chaffetz was asked if he had "voted to cut the funding for embassy security."

    "Absolutely," he replied. "Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have…15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things."

    ---

    Paul Ryan and the Congressional and Tea Party Republicans actually voted several times to cut funding to foreign embassy security.

    How about you post a thread about the 176 dems that voted for that bill. Or is it your intent to tell something other than the truth?

    Excuse? When did a cut in Military funding become an issue in a terrorist attack?

    and your defense is if one things is wrong another wrong makes something right?:eusa_whistle:

    No, he's just trying to deflect away from obama and his total foreign policy failures being responsible for Benghazi-gate.
