    It really looks bad for Ryan, although he's not the only anti-stimulus politician who eagerly accepted funds.

    Of course he did.

    That was his job at the time...to get as much FEDERAL pork into his district as possible.


    IN terms of behavior when it comes to getting PORK, the difference between the Ds and Rs is practically ZERO.

    Who was at the threshold of all that spending? Who authorized it? And how about this economy?.

    That's right, after all of that bluster and indignation, they ran for the stimulus.

    Hypocrites. They should have been forced to prove their theories.

    Hypocritical? Since we're all paying for the stimulus, seems practical and intelligent to benefit from it. Unless, of course, you're a partisan twit who can't use logic and reason.

    That Paul Ryan is a hypocrite and liar is an established and accepted fact.
