Paul Ryan Is No Conservative

Some Republicans have become excited over presumptive nominee Romney's vice-president pick of Paul Ryan.  After a little research, conservative Republicans are finding that Paul Ryan is not a conservative.  Ryan is an insider who has been in Congress for over a decade.  Ryan, like Obama, voted for the bankster TARP bailout at the expense of the American public.

Paul Ryan even voted for Obama's taxpayer-funded bailout of General Motors.  Paul Ryan is a big-government war monger who happens to be registered as a Republican.

Ryan voted for all of the big-ticket, budget-busting items of the administration of President George W. Bush, including the No Child Left Behind Act and the prescription drug benefit known as Medicare Part D, often described as the largest expansion of the welfare state since Lyndon Johnson's Great Society. Ryan voted to create the new Department of Homeland Security, including the Transportation Security Administration that has harassed air travelers, while making aircraft safe from shoes, belt buckles and grandma's knitting needles. He voted for the PATRIOT Act, giving government enhanced powers for warrantless snooping into the lives of American citizens as well as foreign nationals. Ryan voted for the Troubled Assets Relief Program that bailed out the "too big to fail" financial institutions and inspired the Tea Party rebellion against big government and "crony capitalism." He backed the auto bailout that turned GM into "Government Motors."
