Earlier this week Ryan told a local Ohio ABC affiliate that he never sought any stimulus money from the program he railed against. That was not true. Ryan sought more than $20M in stimulus money for his district and after having been confronted with the letters from his own office, he conceded it was true.
But it gets better. The hypocracy runs deep with Ryan.
Chris Hayes as dug up some video from 2002 of Ryan making a full-throated endorsement of deficit stimulus spending in 2002 during the Bush administration.
