Ryan sought stimulus funds while decrying program

There are 121 comments on the bostonglobe.com story from Aug 17, 2012, titled Ryan sought stimulus funds while decrying program . In it, bostonglobe.com reports that:

In 2009, as Rep. Paul D. Ryan was railing against President Obama's $787 billion stimulus package as a "wasteful spending spree," he wrote at least four letters to Obama's secretary of energy asking that millions of dollars from the program be granted to a pair of Wisconsin conservation groups, according to documents obtained by the Globe.

The advocacy appeared to pay off; both groups were awarded the economic recovery funds -- one receiving a $20 million grant to help thousands of local businesses and homes improve their energy efficiency, agency documents show. Ryan’s letters to the energy secretary praising the energy initiatives as he sought a portion of the funding are in sharp contrast to the House Budget Committee chairman’s image as a Tea Party favorite adamantly opposed to federal spending on such programs.

FWIW, I agree that doctors order WAAAAY too many services and run up bills that way. No doubt about that at all.
Part of the reason for it is fee for service, but the larger part is liability. The last time I was called for jury duty was a malpractice suit. The cancer survivor was suing her doc for the surgery that saved her life.

Dumb war decisions haven't been the exclusive province of one party of the other in this country.
I guarantee that many of us hated LBJ just as much as Nixon, based on the War in 'Nam.
Your opinion is misguided as Nixon did a basic cut and run from VN disgiused as a peace agreement.

Try again.

How can you agree and disagree in the same sentence? Multiple personality disorder or textbook Tea Party logic?

Not too clear on history, nut-boy?

LBJ was doing God's work according to Communist-hating Righties like you. Nixon carried on the war for nearly 4 years before pushing for serious peace talks at the beginning of his second term. We withdrew our last troops soon after.

NO ONE wanted to remain in 'Nam, nutball revisionists aside.

Anyone watch the cheating going on at the GOP convention in Tampa, yesterday? The party changed their own rules on the spot when they found Ron Paul had 5 state endorsements required to be nominated by the rules of the GOP. Some Ron Paul delegates being transported by bus were diverted so they didn't arrive in time for a vote. See what cheats the GOP is?

The wasteful spending spree that Ryan was talking about was the giving of stimulus funds to the obamanation's crony reelection campaign donors instead of putting the stimulus funds in bona fide programs that might actually stimulate the economy.
