This should be all over the news - why isn't it? Paul Ryan LIES - in public, and gets caught. Ryan has claimed repeatedly that he opposed the stimulus and would not take stimulus money. He even went as far as to say that “I’m not one [of those] people who votes for something then writes to the government to ask them to send us money. I did not request any stimulus money.”
Yet the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, and now ABC News have confronted Ryan with letters he wrote to Cabinet members requesting money for two Wisconsin energy conservation projects.
Ryan's response? "They were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled,” Ryan said in a statement. “This is why I didn’t recall the letters earlier. But they should have been handled differently, and I take responsibility for that."
