Paul Ryan – His Financial Disclosure


As you can see from the chart, one can understand why Paul Ryan supports big business and is against the middle class. He has criticized President Obama’s tax plan for closing loopholes used by the top 1% and corporations that do not pay their fair share of taxes. Instead he wants to revise the tax code to make it more flat where the middle class and poorer taxpayers will pay even higher taxes. The Republican tax code plan must be stopped and Democrats can only accomplish this by voting in every election. You must make your vote count.

The Budget Wars

In this thread, we will attempt to keep you up to date on the federal budget wars. as with other threads, we have attempted to provide as many links and media sources as possible in order to provide the most comprehensive resources on the Web regarding the federal budget and other subject matter.

The Daily Beast: April 8, 2011: In this article, among other issues, “The Daily Beast” reports on a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll regarding the willingness of various political factions and their willingness to compromise.  it is apparent that the right wing portion of the Republican Party is no longer willing to compromise on most issues. In fact, only 32% of those claiming membership in the tea party are willing to compromise. While 68% of Democrats to Republicans displayed a willingness to compromise. Article

What are the real facts regarding the Agency:

There have been many false accusations and rhetoric during the recent budget debate within Congress regarding Planned Parenthood. Here we attempt to provide the facts regarding this partially federally funded program and answer many of the questions posed during the budgetary debate.

1. Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz), indicated in the latest budgetary debate, that 90% of the Planned Parenthood activities are abortions. Is this statement factual or inaccurate, or maybe even an effort to fool the public. Deseret News (4-12-2001) offers one response.

2. Freshman Congressman, Raul Labrador (R-ID), speaking for the citizens of Idaho recently made the following comment; “They don’t want the federal government to be abortions. There’s so much money going to Planned Parenthood. And it’s impossible for us to know where they’re going. They claim they are not funding any abortion with that money, but that’s the main business they do.” Is he right or wrong? Right Wing Watch

3. Obama recently stated that planned parenthood performs mammograms. Is that statement correct or false? First Things (3-30-2011) It appears from this website that Planned Parenthood only refers to women to other parties that perform mammograms.

4. Other miscellaneous facts and information regarding Planned Parenthood.

Sen. Jon Kyl’s claim that abortion services account for 90 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services. We rated that False.

PolitiFact Georgia last week checked a claim by Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain that Planned Parenthood’s early objective was to “help kill black babies before they came into the world.” We rated that Pants on Fire.

We checked a claim by the conservative site World Net Daily that  a Government Accountability Office report said the Planned Parenthood Federation of America cannot find $1.3 billion given to it by the federal government from 2002 through 2008. We rated that Pants on Fire.

The Obama budget proposal and its effect on small business. By the fact checker of the Washington Post.
