The GOP majority in the House refuse to govern.

Why should they not be proud that they won't pass the farm bill?
Isn't that their philosophy?

The blame for the failure of the Farm Bill does rest squarely on the Republicans and Paul Ryan.
The Food Stamp part of the Bill was and is the bone of contention. That has always been part of the Farm Bill, but, now the Tea Party Terrorists want it cut severely. The Democrats are resisting the Food Stamp Cuts, and so, there is no passage of the Farm Bill. You can't compromise with the fanatics in the Republican Tea Party. It is their way or the highway. If the people are dumb enough to send more of them to Congress, the situation will get worse.

Just a small tidbit of information for you.... The HOUSE under Paul Ryan PASSED a Farm Bill just before the August recess(TWO weeks ago). It is sitting in the SENATE waiting for Harry Reid to do something with it.

The Rude Pundit was going to write a snarky, expletive-filled little rant about Rep. Paul Ryan today until he was listening to NPR talk about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's selection for his running mate. The report mentioned how Ryan's family has deep roots in southern Wisconsin, and that his family made its fortune with a construction business, Ryan Incorporated, which was once "Ryan Brothers." And that it "built roads."

"Huh," the Rude Pundit thought. "Roads aren't generally built by private funding." So he did a little bit of googling, and what do you know?

The Ryan Incorporated Central webpage on the company's history says, "By the 1940's the Company had become a full-service grading contractor serving both private industrial and public transportation customers, including some of the original work at what would become O'Hare Airport."

But on the website for Ryan Incorporated Southern, headquartered in Florida,(there are various divisions of Ryan and, yes, still from Paul Ryan's family and the company founded by his great-grandfather that's still run by cousins), it's a bit more explicit: "The Ryan workload from 1910 until the rural interstate Highway System was completed 60 years later, was mostly Highway construction."

And whose money built the interstate highway system? That'd be ours.

In other words, you know how Barack Obama talked about how your business didn't build the roads that allow you to do business? Well, if you are in the Midwest, chances are that Paul Ryan's family did build some of the roads. And they got to be amazingly successful because the federal government gave them six decades of contracts and millions upon millions of dollars to build them.

Are we clear here? We're talking about Paul Ryan, who, with his wife, is worth as much as $7.7 million and "much of the Ryans’ wealth is in the form of trusts and inheritances." For Rep. Ryan, those trusts and inheritances are a result of money that the federal government spent on infrastructure.

You wanna go further? Here's a list ( http://research.archives.gov/search... ;) of defense contracts from the 1990s that went to Ryan Incorporated in its various forms. One of them, from 1996, is worth $5.6 million and went to Ryan Incorporated Central.

So, just to get this right, Paul Ryan and his family are beneficiaries of expanded government spending to improve infrastructure. They continue to benefit from government contracts, including state and local ones. That's Paul Ryan, whose budget would inevitably gut most infrastructure spending and who, with Mitt Romney, wants to shrink federal spending to the point where, if the federal government had felt that way throughout a good chunk of the 20th century, his family would not have made a dime and, well, then we would have never heard about Paul Ryan.

That's the depth of hypocrisy in play here.

Of course, now, Ryan Incorporated builds a lot of golf courses. So who needs improved roads when you've got that?

The Senate is willing to compromise.

The TEA-BAGGERS in the House are not.

Without compromise our American government cannot function.

The House, and Ryan, refuse to govern. As if they are on strike, to get THEIR WAY OR NOTHING.

The House, and Ryan, must work with the other body in a bicameral legislature.

Ryan is responsible, as is Bohner.

Yet the GOP voted and passed a farm bill that sits in the democrat controlled senate.

SO the title of this article "In Iowa, Obama Blames Ryan For Blocking Farm Bill", is an outright lie.

How can Ryan and Bohner be blamed when they passed a farm bill and the ball is now in the democrat controlled senate?

Pushing 4 years and no budget from the senate...... And YOU say the GOP won't compromise? 30-40 Bills from the House sitting in the Senate waiting for a vote. And YOU say the GOP won't compromise? Right.....
