Another Example of How Ron Paul is Hypocritical on Supposed Fiscal Responsibility

Ron Paul’s acolytes like to claim that “Doctor” Paul is the only candidate that is serious on fiscal matters, the only candidate that is fiscally conservative, the only one that talks the talk and walks the walk. Too bad this is all BS… and here is yet another example of this fact.

T. Boone Pickens is back again. After he tried to make a big splash out of his ideas on windmill power (epic fail, that one), the Pick man is back at the public trough urging Congress to create a number of taxpayer-funded subsidies for companies that buy and manufacture vehicles that run on natural gas.

The Pickster has roped a whole gaggle of Republicans into his next boondoggle and guess who has signed onto the bill? Yep, Mr. fiscal responsibility hisself “Doctor” Ron Paul.

Yeah, so Ron Paul, Mr. fiscal scold, the guy that everyone claims is the only real fiscal conservative in the whole wide world, is signed onto a boondoggle that wastes the taxpayer’s money and sets up some more crony capitalism!

Ron Paul: fiscal hypocrite. He talks a good game, yet often votes like a big spending liberal.

And shame on the rest of these guys, too…
