Fiscal Integrity's Voice : Ryan

The well-informed media in the UK know him better than the people in the United States: Congressman Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Prevublican from Janesville.

They judged him ninth (9th) in importance among United States conservative "Leaders". They do this better than any of the lefty American journalists, being removed and objective.

He is certainly a magnificent thinker and elucidator.

As a member of the Wayd and Means committee in the Housem from which ALL spending originates, and as the premier budget expert who can silence Barney Frank and seize the spotlight from President Obama, Ryan stole the "show" at Blair House Thursday and stunned the "room" as well as some very feet-in-cement pundits.

Here's a sample:

Ryan has repeatedly said he is not a 2012 candidate for president. At 30, he has six terma in the House under his belt and just relishes his preoccupation with the federal budget and its crushing effect on this and future generations. He is a serious deficit fighter with answers: To entielements, even, to security expenditures, to healthcare's balooning costs.

Not an Ivory Tower type nor an Ivy Leaguer, he was educated in Janesville and at Ohio's Miami Unversity. In the Heartland.

We will do well to draw him to further nationwide attention. He has no ulterior motives. He just loves the United States and its children. He has three young ones.

And, thank Eternity, he is obsessed with trimming those numbers the Congressional Budget Office keeps throwing around and AT us. He can catch even the CBO in a mistake.

Listen to him and make up your own mind.

And watch Obama's face.

Nothing's Broken....They're Just Senseless

Frothing his spittle as usual, Massachusetts Democrat congressman Barney Fwank petulantly whined to a pet reporter a few days ago that:

“Washington is “bwoken” !

It would be waspishly witty to fake misunderstanding and murmur “Yasss, We ARE BROKE !”

But it’s not a giggle. Here we have the maestro of the Muddle...the moneystrings of the Nation who legislated free home construction for millions of unqualified home loan applicants while he sashayed into the sunset with his employee-boytoy, whining because his dreams are crumbling or melting around him.

It’s the same, old, left wing, liberal-“progressive” whimper.

When the “Contract for America” wiped out his Democratic majority in 1994, Bill Clinton and his wife moaned that “the system is broken !”

Yet, master politician that he was, Clinton snatched victory from the furnace of defeat, negotiating “welfare reform”, his premiere legacy and the only signal retreat from entitlement spending in history.

There were, THEN, responsible lawmakers who believed in the process--the give-and-take "sausage factory"---the journey, if you will !

But these doctrinaire Marxist socialist types of 2010 are a different breed. They take their marching orders from the profane Rahm-it-Thru Emanuel, the president’s chief of staff, and, as epitomized by Widdle Fwankie, when they are stymied or stalled, they squat on the pity pot and cry foul-havoc.

Even the president fell prey to the litany.

And all of this gnashing of teeth and tantrum-teetering is caused by one special election that returned “The Kennedy” senatorial seat to the people of Massachusetts when Scott Brown was elected there.

You only hear the cry “Washington (The System) is Broken” when popular opinion overtakes and obliterates conniving and conspiracy and the “earmarks”, pet projects and swollen udders of taxpayers milk are threatened with shrinkage and the extraction of the teats.

So, when you hear some U.S. legislator, pundit, talking head or professor yawping about “Washington” or “the System” being broken...

You can be sure that YOU will soon not be as “broke” as you have been, that the tax cutters and budget shrinkers are taking power from the irresponsible and ignorant.

But it IS up to you to keep the shrill rising, to its final silence. At the ballot box-cum-polling place near you.
