Paul Ryan Requested Obamacare Funds

  It never ceases to amaze me at that the Republican Party members are such damned hypocrites when it comes to programs that they claim to dislike.

That is the title of this piece at The Nation that just went up.

FULL DISCLOSURE:  the author, Lee Fang, perhaps the best young investigative reporter around, was my student, albeit in Comparative Religion, not Government.

Here are the first two paragraphs: 

Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan is barnstorming the country, promising to repeal every provision of the Affordable Care Act if the Romney-Ryan ticket is elected. But a letter he wrote to the Obama administration may undermine this message.

On December 10, 2010, Ryan penned a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services to recommend a grant application for the Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc to develop a new facility in Racine, Wisconsin, an area within Ryan's district. "The proposed new facility, the Belle City Neighborhood Health Center, will serve both the preventative and comprehensive primary health care needs of thousands of new patients of all ages who are currently without health care," Ryan wrote.

Go ahead.  Read the piece.

Make it go viral.

Just one more way in which Ryan is a hypocrite.
