Ryan won his seat in 1998, at the age of twenty-eight. Like many young conservatives, he is embarrassed by the Bush years. At the time, as a junior member with little clout, Ryan was a reliable Republican vote for policies that were key in causing enormous federal budget deficits: sweeping tax cuts, a costly prescription-drug entitlement for Medicare, two wars, the multibillion-dollar bank-bailout legislation known as TARP. In all, five trillion dollars was added to the national debt. In 2006 and 2008, many of Ryan’s older Republican colleagues were thrown out of office as a result of lobbying scandals and overspending. Ryan told me recently that, as a fiscal conservative, he was “miserable during the last majority” and is determined “to do everything I can to make sure I don’t feel that misery again.”

Ryan the life time politician that requested stimulus money is really a hypocrite. Ryan like Romney represents the very wealthy and insults the low wage earners like the elderly and some veterans. Ryan like Romney all partisan talk with no substance. I hope people realize these guys are trying their best to get the middle class to vote against their own best interest. Ryan who worships Ayn Rand is a life time politician and loves stimulus money NOT very Ayn Rand like. pathetic

How could he give a particular as Biden interupted him 37 times?. Another terrible performance by the narrator. She held no order and allowed Biiden to interupt consistantly. Talked way too much on foreign affairs because that is help specialty-even though it is way down on the list of what folks care about.
