“From Cathlic Vote today:

Paul Ryan, Representative from Wisconsin’s 1st District

Co-sponsored the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

Voted to amend the health care law so that no federal funds may be used to pay for any part of any healthcare plan that offers abortion coverage.

Voted for the Abortion Pain Bill and the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act.

Voted to prohibit partial birth abortion.

Voted for a resolution proposing a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.

Voted against repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Religious liberty
Voted for the Religious Liberty Protection Act of 1999.

On the HHS mandate: “This is much, much bigger than about contraception. This is about religious freedom, First Amendment rights, and how this progressive philosophy of fungible rights of a living breathing constitution really clashes and collides with these core rights that we built our society and country around.”

Embryonic life
Voted against the Stem Cell Research Act of 2007, which would have required the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct and support research on embryonic stem cells.

Voted in favor of developing methods to produce stem cells without using human embryos.

Well, being the ‘guy’ who used to like to pull one wing off a fly and let him run around in circles before ‘snuffing’ him, I certainly hope this is a ruse.
Not so much as I have anything against Ryan, good choice, just to cram it up these idiot MSMers —that were interrupting a NEWS broadcast to announce the ‘scoop’— hind parts.

Or tell different ‘(un)trustworthy’ aides a different choice and see who your leak is.....

What will the MSM do? Turn on Romney? ha...

BTW what do you call a FLY with no wings?
A WALK.....
