Ryan: Trillion-dollar deficits were inevitable - the Hill.
Quote:
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says that trillion-dollar deficits could not have been avoided by the GOP-controlled Congress, responding to critics within his party who say that leaders have behaved irresponsibly.

“That was going to happen. The baby boomers retiring was going to do that,” Ryan said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” of projections that the country will start running trillion-dollar deficits as soon as 2020.

The only real question is: is he really that incompetent or is he that consummate a liar?

those qualities are not mutually exclusive .... and note i did not include all manner of intellectual qualities which he clearly has not demonstrated

or as some would say ... since many folks are slugs, it is ok for me to be one

and these folks are actually elected to office ... is that a commentary of America we don't want to hear?

YES!

Libs are mad that they are not being lied to by their identity politicians with a majority.
