Paul Ryan Tells Fox: âI Didnât Know Aboutâ The Letters I Signed Asking For Stimulus Funds By Igor Volsky on Aug 18, 2012 at 1:32 pm
During an interview with Fox Newsâ Carl Cameron on Saturday, Paul Ryan tried to explain why he denied requesting stimulus funds for a local energy company in 2009 after voting against and demagoguing the Recovery Act. âMy office sends tens of thousands of letters to various federal agencies and this goes through what we call a case work system and we treat it as a case work for constituents,â Ryan said:
RYAN: I didnât know about the letters until recently and they were brought to my attention, they were to the case work system and I take full responsibility for that. The point Iâm trying to make is stimulus was a failure.
