We all know the presently-parsimonious Paul Ryan spent the lights out for eight years while Tom DeLay and Company ruled the House of Representatives. Folks, let's consider the spending packed into the Young Gun's holster: * Ryan voted for eight straight GOP budgets which hiked spending by $1 trillion - all told, Ryan voted for $20 trillion in budget spending alone. * Ryan helped finance two wars off of the budget books * Ryan voted for the Medicare Part D plan, which former GAO head David Walker called an $8 trillion unfunded mandate. Indeed, Paul Ryan, your hypocrisy is an unseemly trait. Ryan at his core, as can be told from his voting record during the Bush years, is a statist, big government man.

This Republican-controlled Congress overwhelmingly passed "H.R. 1309: Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2011" on July 12, 2011. It's purpose: "To extend the authorization of the national flood insurance program, to achieve reforms to improve the financial integrity and stability of the program, and to increase the role of private markets in the management of flood insurance risk, and for other purposes." Why does the government subsidize millionaires buying insurance for their large homes on beachfront property? Most of this money goes to two states; Florida and Texas. When I was a kid, most beachfront dwellings were cottages. Now, thanks to taxpayer financed insurance, wealthy people build mansions.

Here's the typical Republican response about giving out flood insurance money to home-owners; "yeah, but not all of the money goes to millionaires with million dollar homes." PRICELESS!!!!
