Paul Ryan’s $tained Hands

Paul Ryan and campaign donations are a funny thing… well funny isn’t really the right word.

Ryan would have you believe he is a courageous hero to America, but in reality, he is playing both sides of the fence. This tweet is an attempt at self preservation… saving face, and saving his ass.

The fact is he took money from Russia, in the form of political donations in 2016, which is why he’d rather Special Council Mueller drop the Russia investigation.

That explains Ryan’s attempt to discredit the FBI by lending his credibility to Devin Nunes and his cut and paste memo.

“Nunes memo lays out a ‘specific, legitimate’ worry about surveillance.” ~Paul Ryan

Remember that?

This is the same Paul Ryan behavior we repeatedly see with regards to gun control. He took $171,977 from the NRA in 2016, and never thinks there is a good time to discuss gun control reform. In response to the Florida High School shooting this week—

On one side of the fence we see—

“Don’t make Florida school shooting conversation about taking away people’s guns.”~Paul Ryan

And on the other side we see—

“This is an unspeakable tragedy. It is nothing short of true evil to attack innocent children.” ~ Paul Ryan

It’s unspeakable because, as one of the top congressional recipients of NRA donations, he isn’t free to speak about it.

Let’s look at one more example of Paul Ryan, bought by the highest bidder. Tax cuts for the wealthiest 1%. He says it’s for you, the working class—

He added $1.4 trillion to the federal deficit when he gave corporations and the wealthiest 1% of the population a 50% tax cut, then he immediately began promoting cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and healthcare.

Why?

Paul Ryan and campaign donations are not funny at all, pathetic is a better word.

  1. As long as we keep a political system based entirely on who raises the most money, we can count on corruption. It will never end. Who will have the courage to change what all the politicians count on? I wish I had an answer. Ryan is corrupt. The problem is, in one way or another, they are ALL corrupt because they all take money and they all owe favors. BIG favors.

    1. The only solution would be to take special interest groups out of politics, then those politicians who are in it for the money rather than public service would leave, but they would never let that happen.

      1. That’s the bottom line, isn’t it. The people who would have to make the changes are the people who benefit from the corruption. A few might sign on, but where the rubber meets the road, they are all chickens. I really hoped I’d live to see this get fixed. I don’t think I will live that long.
