How much Paul Ryan spent on a bottle of Wine? From the crack journalism team at TPM:
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), a leading advocate of shrinking entitlement spending and the architect of the plan to privatize Medicare, spent Wednesday evening sipping $350 wine with two like-minded conservative economists at the swanky Capitol Hill eatery Bistro Bis
The Horror! The article then continues with a first hand account of an unhinged liberal who “confronted” Congressman Ryan and his the two economists he was having dinner with regarding the expensive bottle of wine:
After ending their meal and paying the check, Feinberg [The unhinged and possibly drunk moonbat] decided to give Ryan a piece of her mind. She approached the table and asked Ryan “how he could live with himself” sipping expensive wine while advocating for cuts to programs for seniors and the poor. Some verbal jousting between Feinberg and the other two men ensued. One of the two men said he had ordered the wine, was drinking it and paying for it. In hearing how much the wine cost, Ryan said only: “Is that how much it was?”
The article finishes up with Congressman Ryan being accused of accepting a gift from a lobbyist (the economists he was dining with) and providing TPM with a copy of the receipt for his dinner showing he purchased one of the bottles.
We’re running record deficits, it’s been over two years since the senate has passed a budget, and the libs are worried about Congressman Ryan’s eating and drinking habits? Typical.
