A Good Hard Look...

...at whether Congressman Paul Ryan is putting his money where his mouth is...or putting it somewhere else. Like the coffers of the Big Three.

Mentioned increasingly as a rising star in the GOP as of late, I see his shine growing rather dim if he continues on this path. These are not the positions of a standard-bearer for a party that needs to divorce itself from its current president and distinguish itself from its soon-to-be overwhelming opposition. Fiscal conservatism does not entail support for both the initial government bailout and now, seemingly, the prospect of additional bailouts.
