Paul Ryan: Wrong Turn on 'Roadmap'

Ryan must have had a few too many after his re-election.

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Wednesday he would favor assisting the ailing American automakers immediately, using the $25 billion Congress set aside previously for development of more fuel-efficient vehicles

...Ryan said he would use the already-allocated energy efficiency money now, and deal with the issue of if or how to replace it later.

Congressional Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, oppose that plan, deeming it environmentally shortsighted. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., has endorsed drawing from the Wall Street bailout account, while Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., has only said any assistance should come in the form of a loan.

Ryan better get new batteries in his GPS. He's going in the wrong direction. I expect that from Feinie and Herbivore, not from Mr. Roadmap.

What do you expect from a guy whose constituents consist of a high percentage of union workers?
