Paul Ryan phones it in

Two things keep getting harder to find in Kenosha: a good job and Paul Ryan.
So says Wisconsin Jobs Now, which has chronicled the recent sit-in by unemployed workers who left Ryan's Kenosha office after his staff called the cops.

Ryan, on a long family vacation in Colorado, supposedly musing about running for president, has decided during this Congressional recess to ignore his constituents.

Ryan's only public event is a Rotary Club speech for which lunch tickets are $15, and it's not even in his district, but in West Allis.

Says Wisconsin Jobs Now:

While unemployment in his district remains high, Paul Ryan is dodging his constituents and their repeated attempts to schedule meetings with him to address the jobs crisis. When asked to meet, Rep. Ryan replies with a form letter stating that his schedule is full and inviting participation in a telephone “conference call meeting” instead.
Here's the letter.
