These freaky Leftist dopers don't understand even the rudimentaries of how a Congressman's office works.

“After having these letters called to my attention I checked into them, and 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."

Requesting AVAILABLE, mandated Federal Funds is not hypocrisy. Standing against the inherent damage of stimulus funding, or repeating the same mistake doesn't conflict with that. The mediocrity of approaching the voters as if they are fools is the common direction of the Democats.
