We know recently that Paul Ryan(with help from Scott Walker) tried to blame President Obama for the Janesville GM Plant closing. We also know that Paul Ryan is an habitual liar.
Despite being proven incredibly wrong on this issue, it did not stop the RMoney/rAyn campaign from putting out this disgusting video!
Well we know that this attack not only is not true, it really shows that ryan is willing to use his friends and neighbors as political pawns. Shame on him.
One last thing about the video, Then candidate Obama had this to say.
"If our government is there to support you, and give you the assistance you need to retool and make this transition, that this plant will be here for another 100 years.".
Well it turns out then candidate Obama was correct, had they gotten support from their government (like the way Toyota and Honda do), they might still be open today.
However, that was the Bush era and no help was coming to anyone(who was not a defense contractor anyway) from the Government.
Let's also not forget, that while the 1st congressional district of Wisconsin was once a thriving manufacturing district, it has lost every single auto job while it has been (poorly) represented by Janesville's own Paul Ryan.
