Paul Ryan's Lies Are Worse Than Christie's Lies
Paul Ryan's speech was full of lies and this article in the Washington Post provides an excellent analysis of Ryan's disregard for truth. He blames Obama for rejecting the Simpson-Bowles plan for reducing federal budget deficits. What he doesn't say is that Obama never received a plan to reject. That is because Ryan voted against the plan, and he convinced other GOP members of the commission to do so because it contained tax increases as well as cuts to federal spending. Paul Ryan gets away with this because the public is poorly informed by the media. For every article like this one in the Washington Post there are many more reports that tell Ryan's version of the story.
