  • After repeated denials, Paul Ryan has admitted he requested stimulus cash even after sharply criticizing the program.
  • As recently as Wednesday in Ohio, Mitt Romney’s running mate told ABC’s Cincinnati affiliate, WCPO, he did not.

“I never asked for stimulus,” Ryan said.

  • In 2009, Ryan wrote to Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis asking for stimulus money to cover costs on two energy conservation projects in his home state of Wisconsin.
  • In the letter, Ryan said the funds would help create jobs and reduce “energy consumption” in the state.
  • At least one of the companies received the requested cash.

    Ryan lied so does the president. War on Marijuana in California, Gitmo, and Obama care is not a tax, Killing of Americans with out charge or trial; I wonder where he hangs his Noble peace prize?
