Paul Ryan Lies: VP Candidate Blames Obama for the Debt to Cover Up His Own Blame

Paul Ryan was in Congress and voted for the Republican policies that are responsible for the debt levels we face today. Bush's spending did not end when he left office. Republicans have also protected his most costly programs to date. Thus, while they attack Obama for the debt ceiling fiasco; Republicans are attacking the president for wanting to pay the bills on time. 

The treasury writes the checks and handles the accounts. They know what policies are responsible for government spending. They write the checks to pay the bills for those policies. The Congressional Budget Office, (CBO) is also involved in all parts of the process.

Did you know that prior to Obama becoming president, the CBO estimates published in 2008 said that the deficit would be $1.2 trillion at least?    

This chart proves that Republicans are angry about the debt creating measures they signed into law when Republicans controlled Congress and the presidency. Their policies while Bush was president increased spending so recklessly that we still see exploding debt today. Yes, Paul Ryan and Republicans voted for all the measures that explode the debt today.  We need to have a little talk about this.I support Obama and the Democrats today because I am a fiscal conservative. When I studied the charts to see where the money was spent, I could not find many policies generated by Obama that added to the deficit. Most followed "paygo" rules and were paid for by cuts in other programs or revenue increases.  

Bottom line: Republicans blocked 19 jobs bills and a total of 379 other measures in the past two years. This assures us that Obama did not have the capacity to pass the debt increasing measures they try to pin on him now. Republicans and their policies own this debt, despite what misinformation they spew to American citizens.

I am vehemently against those who work to score political points rather than provide solutions. I fight to point out when bias and misinformation are being put forwards. I believe our Democracy is a gift, it needs to be cherished, and honored by having well thought out debate, with primary source data to back up statements. Especially, while we are holding up Democracy as the example to the world. I am an independent who will appear partisan, but only when challenging those who are working to score political points rather than working to find solutions to build success in America. Bottom line: Policies need input from each perspective. Real problems need to be addressed in ways that actually get the job done. Policies should find the line between maximum individual responsibility and minimum input of government resources; that will actually get the job done. All government programs have major problems and must be put into a rigorous and constant state of improvement. While they all have major problems, the US military is the strongest in the history of the world, NASA has had the greatest exploration achievements off planet Earth in the history of mankind, and somehow America is the number one economy in the world. I believe the most important organization to support and put energy into today is www.nolabels.org
