You would think by now out of sheer boredom Congressmen would be looking for new ways to fool voters but, undeterred at using the same old worn-out trick again, just before Christmas eager-beaver Paul Ryan rolled out his new budget, saying how he’d made a deal with the Democrats to cut spending and cut the deficit – which sounded pretty good until it turned out he hadn’t done any such thing.
 
Ryan’s new deal didn’t cut spending this year, or next year, or the year after – it increased it. So where are the cuts? Well, they’re promises Ryan is sure will happen a decade from now – if Congress doesn’t change its mind.
 
It’s hard to tell which is worse – Ryan increasing spending or Ryan saying he cut spending when he didn’t.
 
But give Paul Ryan credit for one thing – he’s proven Congressmen, like pickpockets, are not just sneaky – they’re predictable.

Paul Ryan is a major disappointment. First, he becomes a poster boy and big time advocate of amnesty for illegal aliens. Now, he sells us down the river on budget, debt, and spending. Worse yet, his deal cut our military retirees. Even when Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) offered an amendment in the Senate to cut out a massive refundable tac credit (welfare) giveaway to illegal aliens instead of cutting military retirees, Paul Ryan came out vocally against that. Paul Ryan has lost any chance of my support for President, but I suspect that his caving in on the budget had a lot to do with his posturing for the liberal media for his presidential ambitions.

I think it's genetic with the politicians. I wonder why our guardians, the media, don't call them out on these pick pocket moves. I don't actually wonder I actually know. Sorry for not being more truthful and accurate.
