Ryan Knew About, Ignored
Military Pension Cuts ´Mistake´
in Budget Deal

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 12/20/2013 9:23:30 AM

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan admitted on Wednesday evening that cutting the pensions of disabled and injured U.S. military veterans as part of the deal he forged with Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) was a mistake. Apparently, Ryan knew the mistake was in the legislation for at least two full days before the House vote. He has not, however, provided any explanation for why he did nothing to fix it. While interviewing him on Kudlow Report on CNBC Wednesday evening, Larry Kudlow asked Ryan if he agreed with a statement Murray made on the Senate floor

Comments:
Ooops! Sorry about that! Ryan knew what was in his spending bill, but hasn´t the courage to stand up and defend cuts he obviously agreed with. Feigning clumsy ignorance has become common practice by Establishment types and is always the go-to excuse when caught out in a lie.

Also note that the "we can fix it later" excuse bandied about by the Republican Establishment crew didn´t work in this case, and in fact, never does.

Curious that.

Got Tea?

Ryan is no different then the rest of the scum on Washington. I wonder if he thought no one would notice how he wants to screw the military out of EARNED benefits. Earned in a harder way then sitting in some office in DC.

Reading the article, I see that Ryan admitted the mistake and outlined the way it would be corrected. Why are people on his own "side" using this mistake to demonize him? We gripe about Obama never admitting mistakes (much less correcting them), yet when Ryan does what we say we want, folks pile on anyway.

The worm has turned and the worm is Paul Ryan. his offer to fix the problem is as phony as he is. If he knew it was there, it never should have gotten in there in the first place. Worst of all? He got outsmarted by one of the dimmest bulbs in the senate, Patty Murray.

Cuttng military retirement benefits (well, any military benefits actually) has long been a Democrat wet dream. With the help of Paul Ryan, they have taken the first tiny chunk.

As a fiscal conservative, I understand that social security, medicare, medicaid and government retirement benefits to name a few must be cut...not just the military all by itself.

This was their opening shot and it will not be the last. We just have to hope we have a stronger negotiator than Paul Ryan on our side looking out for us.

Politicians, if nothing else, are skillful at deceiving. The Tea Party is developing a similar skill set for culling those politicians that, after testing, show themselves feckless and cowardly. We just need to stick with it. Let´s ignore and endure the low-T support staff that keep trying to throw "sticks in our spokes" and let´s take care of business.

A guy who would run with a retired but otherwise unemployed coupon clipper whose only job was to mess up the Republican Presidential primary system just has to have a political tin ear.

We need Ryan out of there. Somebody go tell him to not come back.

I think I´d prefer the goofball who got caught cruising for women on the net with pictures of him shaving his arm pits. Chris Lee? I think that was it. Had more sense, and knew what he wanted anyway.

Much of this has been said, but I am so furious over this cut to military benefits that I just had vent. Yes, many military do get jobs after they "retire". That´s because the retirement is so low that they have to get a second job to provide a living for their family. Many military also retire close to military facilities so they can take advantage of the earned privilege of shopping at a military commissary. Now we see that our overpaid public servants are also taking that away. If it is necessary to reduce military retirements, then an equivalent reduction in congressional salaries, social programs and such would also be appropriate. I am so furious at Lame McCain and RINO Ryan at this point that I will sit on my hands before I ever vote for any ticket they are on. After all, a vote for them is about the same as a vote for the liberals. There is no difference. For Ryan to even think he could go along with the wacked out Patti Murray tells you a lot about what he is.

While I have never believed that the Lightbringer was smart, I did believe that Paul Ryan was smart and a fiscal Conservative. Now that is all in the past.

Lucianne is a microcosm of Conservative thought. All the "I like Paul Ryan" and "he would make a great speaker" comments have lead nowhere. Time for the serial posters from the Establishment Republicans camp to face reality, Paul Ryan is done as a candidate for any office within the party. No matter how much money they garner from the business rich, he will never appeal to the voters outside the Boomtown Beltway.

If you’re going to win in politics you first have to know what politics actually is.{SNIP}The base of the GOP is still primarily made up of those willing to pledge their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor for the cause of liberty. But they are lions led by lambs in the feckless GOP leadership. They are not warriors. They are bureaucrats. The difference is a warrior takes territory while a bureaucrat protects his own.

“To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan said Wednesday, “it’s really a question of ‘when.’” Ryan, who was making the economic case for reforming our nation’s immigration system, was speaking at a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Ryan called the nation’s immigration laws “chief” among the problems that are curbing economic growth. Noting the rate of retirement among baby boomers, Ryan said reforming the immigration system is necessary to fill future jobs. “Please know that we understand the value of immigration,” Ryan told the crowd. “We

A group of conservative House Republicans put a Medicare “doc fix” bill in mortal peril with their objections – but then acquiesced to a plan from GOP leadership to pass it without a vote. The vote was repeatedly delayed this morning as top Republicans scrambled to find the necessary votes for the legislation. Making the problem more difficult: the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed a 2/3 majority rather than the normal 1/2 majority. Huddling with leadership in an ornate room off the House floor, a group of GOP lawmakers who form

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.

Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

Contrary to rumors that the Tea Party is in demise, if Republicans gain control of the Senate and retain control of the House after November, the Tea Party versus establishment battle may just be getting started. Statistician Nate Silver gave the GOP a 60% chance of taking back the Senate, and the Los Angeles Times noted that the Tea Party is getting ready for its next phase of promoting policies to lower the debt and mitigate or repeal Obamacare. Grassroots conservatives, having given the GOP its House majority back in 2010, felt snubbed when the establishment tried to blunt their

Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.
