Entries in Rep. Paul Ryan (11)


Ryan to IRS witnesses at Ways and Means hearing: “You’re to blame” is the message 

Witnesses from conservative groups testified before the House Ways and Means committee on June 4 regarding IRS persecution. (Frame: C-SPAN)Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), an incredulous look on his face, changed his line of questioning midstream during the House Ways and Means Committee hearings on IRS targeting of conservative groups. Ryan said, “So you’re to blame, I guess, is the message here.”

Biden delivered some ‘malarkey’ on Iran’s nuclear status; media ignores danger

Map: CIA World FactbookYou’d think the status of Iran’s nuclear program would be important enough for media to pay attention to what Vice President Joe Biden said during the interviews guised as a debate conducted by ABC’s Martha Raddatz in Denver.

In fact, some of Biden’s statements were pure “malarkey.”

Raddatz, dubbed a “foreign policy expert” by Biden, didn’t call him out on it.

THE DEBATE between sitting vice president Joe Biden and GOP nominee Paul Ryan didn’t contain the knockout factor GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney dealt President Barack Obama in the first presidential debate.

Both Ryan and Biden, however, got what they came for.

Tampa and Charlotte gear up for convention-goers and record numbers of media

Ahead of the convention, the addition of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) has energized the Romney campaign and pleased many at the grassroots level. (Camera shot from TV; The US Report)

Tampa (Fla.) will turn red beginning on August 27 and Charlotte (N.C.) will turn blue the week of Labor Day as both national parties hold their conventions.  

It’s likely business owners will welcome the potential uptick in sales. It's a given that record numbers of media will descend on both cities, but numbers cited by the GOP are startling.

Amid fears over Euro collapse, Obama administration herds U.S. towards fiscal cliff

Photo: Camera shot of TV screen, The US ReportRight now all eyes are on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s choice for vice president, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), but there’s a pending crisis media is ignoring. That crisis will challenge the winner of the 2012 election in the U.S.

The crisis is replete with lessons for the U.S., but President Barack Obama will not heed them.

'MediScare' tactics backfire: Personal experience with a Democrat

People like to ask me questions about politics, and on Monday, an elderly woman was upset enough to ask me if she was going to lose her Medicare coverage.

By the time we finished talking, I was pretty shocked at what she told me.

WaPo and FactCheck err on Clinton’s ‘bipartisan Medicare commission’ 

Media comprises a lot of 20 and 30 somethings, so it came as no surprise to me when a Washington Post blogger (better known for the nefarious collusion called Journolist) and Fact Check at the Annenberg Public Policy Center erred on a point Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) made about former President Bill Clinton and Medicare reform.

Ryan has been attacked by liberals using legacy media as proxy because Ryan actually offered a tangible plan for heading off what will be a Medicare disaster as baby boomers retire.

The WaPo blogger wrote: “So let’s review: President Clinton did not convene a bipartisan commission on Medicare…”

FactCheck wrote: “But any attempt to cast the 1999 report as bipartisan or suggest it was Clinton's commission is misleading.”

I am certain neither the liberal blogger nor Fact Check intended to call the politically rehabilitated Clinton a liar although that’s basically the consequence of their statements.

Ryan says Obama budget plan triples US debt over 10-year term

Ryan's 'Path to Prosperity' is posted online. Unlike many of the bills and plans crafted by Democrats, Ryan's plan is written in simple English and is easily comprehended.Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) is known for his knowledge about the federal budget and spending, one reason he heads up the Budget Committee in the US House of Representatives. Ryan appeared on Fox and Friends on Wednesday, and he made the case for his fiscal plan ‘The Path to Prosperity’ with a declaration that should upset every American. “Obama,” said Ryan, “is accelerating us towards a debt crisis.”

Why? Because of “budget gimmicks and accounting tricks.”

Ryan delivered hard numbers that would send any business owner into a tailspin. Under President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats in Congress, federal agency spending rose 24 percent across the board. Once Stimulus dollars were unleashed, the increase rose to 84 percent.

In a down year any business, large or small, raising budgets across the board by 84 percent would not be long for this world.
