Another weasle.

I'm not for any stimulus...but for gods sake...be consistent. This is a game to these clowns. Vote in people with principles no matter what side of the isle you're on.

Flip flopping is a (R)epelican't way of life!!!

"I am not a crook!"

The original and seminal flip flop.

Yes he was, and they have been ever since.

Note the fact that teabagge(R)s raised my taxes to give another "break" to corporations.

flip, flop. flop flip.

It's what they've been doing.

In the first link, everything Ryan said is true. Less than 3% of the "stimulus" went to helping small businesses hire and expand. Americans got a whopping $10 a week. Not sure about you but that doesn't buy much. Most of the money went to the President's cronies, into basically a slush fund...his friends in green energy most of whom have gone bankrupt with that money, turtle bridges and other stupid things, wish lists for dems who owned the house and senate at that time. Everyone knows that. That's why it didn't work. There was no "stimulus" in it. The money would have been better spent if it had been divided up among all Americans to spend. Nearly a trillion dollars with no return. Ryan was right on this one.

The 2nd link is about TARP which wasn't a stimulus. It was a bailout. I was against bailing out the banks so I think Ryan was wrong on that one. Paulsen, Treasury Secretary, was behind that because he was in cahoots with Goldman Sachs being a former GS executive. ALL of congress was wrong to do it. They were all scammed or if not scammed, in on it and no one has paid yet. We need an outcry to bring back Glass-Steagle and break up these banks.
