ICYMI: Paul Ryan's Obscene $700 Wine Spree
Talking Points Memo reported that Ryan's bacchanalia involved two bottles of wine at a fancy Washington restaurant.
"It is obscene that Paul Ryan is drinking $350 bottles of wine with the very hedge fund managers who will profit at the same time Ryan is asking working families in Wisconsin to do less with less," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Monday. "Forget about the ethical questions of just who picked up the tab for this bacchanalia-which Ryan still must answer-it is flatly immoral for him to seek cutbacks by the middle class at the same time his hedge fund manager friends are getting more breaks that will allow them to buy even more pricey wines. While Wisconsin's middle class suffers, Paul Ryan's class celebrates."
