Paul Ryan took to the podium at CPAC on Thursday and did not disappoint those of us waiting to pick at the lies this duly elected government official must tell in order to remind us all that our government–the very same government he volunteered to be a part of; the very same government that pays […]
More important than the false story Paul Ryan has been telling is what his true views are as Robert Schlesinger notes. Here’s the thing: The promise of a “life of equal outcomes” exists only in the straw man talking points of Paul Ryan and the CPAC speaker’s lineup. It’s a conservative straw man, not an […]

Lies. Remember how Rep. Paul Ryan was so sad about the poor boy who didn't want that nasty free government school lunch, "because he knew a kid with [lunch in] a brown paper bag had someone who cared for him"? Ryan had been told that story by Eloise Anderson, a member of Wisconsin Gov. Show More Summary
Paul Ryan is a plagarist and/or liar. But it’s all OK because Obama’s book wasn’t 100% true. Or something. Open thread. This space reserved for your ad.
This morning, a hole opened up in Paul Ryan’s hammock. The Post’s Glenn Kessler has checked out the anecdote Paul Ryan offered at CPAC yesterday, which was the perfect distillation of what you might call the Hammock Theory of Poverty. In case you missed it, Ryan opined that the left is offering people “a full stomach […]
It’s a big jarring. I never thought I’d see the day when a politician attacks free lunches given to financially needy kids in schools.

The key line from Ryan on Thurs will be a scathing synopsis of the Democrats' pitch, saying they offer "a full stomach — and an empty soul." — @costareports Stupid Democrats. Don't they know that nothing feeds the soul like tax cuts for the rich? That trumps food on the table, good education, clean air and water, and accessible health care any day of the week!
Conservative media were unfazed by Rep. Paul Ryan's suggestion that low-income parents don't care for their children if they receive free school lunches, a response that stays true to their history of shaming low-income people. Rep.Show More Summary
