Cato Institute budget analyst: Paul Ryan is a big government conservativeSubmitted by PaulFanDC on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 17:37
Tad DeHaven demolishes Paul Ryan:
So what if Paul Ryan was delving into the federal budget when he was still in high school? I didn’t peek at a federal budget until I was out of college. Yet there is no way I would have cast the votes in Congress that Ryan has through the years. Ryan voted for TARP, the auto bailouts, No Child Left Behind, the Medicare prescription drug benefit, the Bush stimulus, the Patriot Act, and military adventurism abroad. No policymaker is perfect, but no one with a libertarian bone in their body could have supported these policies.
