Penny-pinching Ryan spends your tax money on self-promotional budget video

Penny-pinching Paul Ryan is so worried about government spending that he's spent some of your hard-earned money on this political video to push the Republican agenda and attack President Obama and the Democrats.

Ed O'Keefe of the Washington Post calls it, "heavy on theatrics, light on specifics."

When they come, we won't like the specifics, which are tailored to please the most conservative members of the House GOP caucus, and which will renege on budget agreements Ryan and the GOP made last year, slashing spending by as much as $19-billion.

Thursday night, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee blasted Ryan for reportedly planning once again to propose changes to Medicare and for using “a taxpayer funded self-promotional video” to criticize Democrats for the nation’s fiscal woes.

“Ryan and House Republicans are responsible for getting our country into this debt crisis and now want seniors to be the first to sacrifice to get us out,” DCCC spokesman Jesse Ferguson said in a statement Thursday night.

  1. This is a fracking campaign ad! Someone call Rob Zerban and the FEC. By the way, when Ryan asks what we should think of politicians who saw the crisis coming and did nothing, he inadvertently disses most of the leaders of his own party, circa 2005-2007, in the looming financial bubble that popped. There were plenty of warnings from economists and others that we were on the edge and that action was needed. But no-o-o-o...!
