You lie! about stimulus bill

August 17, 2012

In 2010 Rep. Ryan told a radio show in his district that he did not apply for stimulus funds, and he repeated the lie to a TV host at Miami U (my alma mater) on 8-16-12; but letters show otherwise (see Boston globe and AP reports).

AP:  “Ryan’s statement directly counters the evidence of four letters obtained by the AP which the congressman wrote to Energy Secretary Steven Chu, praising energy programs supported by the stimulus and requesting funds for initiatives in his district.

Ryan’s private praise for Department of Energy programs and his written requests for stimulus funds contradict not only his public criticism of the 2009 stimulus bill, but also many of the budget priorities he has laid out, including cuts to investments in green technologies.”
