So the Obamacare-hater Paul Ryan used funds from the Affordable Care Act, eh?

Paul Ryan’s hypocrisy is getting a little outlandish.

On December 10, 2010 Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, wrote a letter requesting funds from the Department of Health and Human Services to develop a new medical facility in Racine, Wisconsin, a clinic in his own district, according to the Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute. 

"The proposed new facility, the Belle City Neighborhood Health Center, will serve both preventative and comprehensive primary health care needs of thousands of new patients of all ages who are currently without health care," Ryan wrote in his letter.

Though Ryan has been one of the greatest and most savage opponents of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, he received the funds to benefit the health center in his district. 

I repeat: The grant that Ryan secured to fund the Belle City Neighborhood Health Canter was funded almost entirely by the Affordable Care Act.


"Please note that target area includes includes census tracts ranking amongst the poorest and most-medically underserved in the State of Wisconsin," Ryan wrote in his letter. 

Poor and underserved you say Mr. Ryan?

Clearly it’s okay to use the federally funded grants made possible by the Affordable Care Act for his own state, but not for people of other states, because apparently they are not poor-enough, or underserved-enough

According to the Investigative Fund “Ryan first denied responsibility for the stimulus grant requests; but later confessed that his office had sent the letters.”

A spokesperson of Mitt Romney’s responded to the blogs article claiming these grants were made possible by a program that began under President Bush. These claims are not credible.
