Paul (R- Wall St.) and Janna( Lobbyist UPS) Ryan make a great couple. They have many common interests. Apparently one of the main things they have in common, is that they both like to destroy middle class America as we know it!
Paul Ryan’s wife, Janna Little Ryan, is not exactly the typical stay at home Mom that is portrayed by Mr Ryan . Until their marriage she was a successful tax attorney and by the time she was 30 a high-priced lobbyist. Mrs. Ryan worked for Big Pharmaceuticals, Big Oil, and health care corporations. Interestingly she was also a key lobbyist for UPS. Her lobbying team was paid $220,000 in 1998 to lobby against the interests of the US Postal Service.
UPS spent over $5 million lobbying against its main competitor. Janna Little Ryan lobbied congress to not allow the Postal Service to expand the services it offers. UPS at this time initiated a smear campaign against the Postal Service by among other things sending every member of congress a box filled with anti Postal Service editorials.
Thank God, Paul Ryan did not win the election....what the heck would have been Janna's pet cause as second lady of the US? Clubbing baby seals? Recognizing bully's as a protected class?
The former Big Oil, Big Pharma, Tobacco industry lobbyist found great success in lobbying and even used her position to introduce her Congressional candidate boyfriend to the world of taking big money donations and all expenses paid trips from Corporations.
So when you hear about all of the problems with the Post Office and how we may no longer have Saturday Delivery and the thousands of local postal jobs that will cost this country, remember that Janna Little Ryan's goal is being realized!
” (Janna) Ryan was a part of the lobbying effort that defeated a postal reform bill which was designed to make the U.S. Postal Service more profitable. The ripples of her work in defeating this bill were felt earlier this month, when the Postal Service defaulted on payments to the U.S. Treasury.” (1)
