Paul Ryan requests grant money from Obamacare for clinic in his state

I had a feeling that the tag "Obamacare" was going to come back and (rightly) bite the Republicans...and it has. Surprisingly people like not being thrown out of their insurance program when they get sick, who would have guessed that? Furthermore they are appreciative of many other features of the program as they come on line.
What's astounding though (well maybe not) is that the R/R team bashes Obamacare whenever they can. But look what Ryan did behind the scenes.


Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan is barnstorming the country, promising to repeal every provision of the Affordable Care Act if the Romney-Ryan ticket is elected. But a letter he wrote to the Obama administration may undermine this message.

On December 10, 2010, Ryan penned a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services to recommend a grant application for the Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc to develop a new facility in Racine, Wisconsin, an area within Ryan’s district. “The proposed new facility, the Belle City Neighborhood Health Center, will serve both the preventative and comprehensive primary healthcare needs of thousands of new patients of all ages who are currently without healthcare,” Ryan wrote.

Herman Munster should have taught Eddie Munster that lying does not pay.

In this day of Google and YouTube you'd think politicians would be just a tad more careful?
Yes, Ryan does look like a grownup version of Herman Munster.

You bet that is what he is supposed to do. He states in his letter that it will bring uninsured people in his district health care......he did his job, but then to go up and not recognize the positive things he talked about in his letter to get the money.....pure hypocrisy. Why could he not get up in front of the Convention and tell them about applying for health care benefits for his constituents, and then saying the truth.....that some good things were in the health care bill......but there are also some big problems......and here is what I would change to make it better.


How difficult is it to have integrity? Ryan is a fifty buck prostitute faking an orgasm. The folks with small weenies are buying into the lies, but real men know better. These wimps have taken over the Party which once had real men who would tell the truth despite the consequences......that is the essence of integrity.

I'll never forget when a reporter asked W what he thought of all the nuances surrounding the situation in the Middle East. He was walking away from the podium but paused and answered: "I don't do nuance."

Point being the Republican Party would be in a lot better position today if it had been a little more subtle in its operation. Take McConnel's blunt remark about making Obama a one term president. Or the total stonewalling against so many bills that were designed to improve the economy.

Now they look like what they are, a group of folks who see every issue as black or white. This leaves them no room to negotiate and get some of the things they want. Instead the voters can now very easily see their obstructionist agenda and are not happy with the way Congress is working/not working.

In a very real way this united effort on the part of the Republicans may end up being the very thing that gives Obama a second term. If they'd worked with him and tried to do what was best for the country instead of focusing on making him and the economy look as sorry as possible maybe voters would have said, well, his policies didn't work, let's try something else.
