From this Monday's The Young Turks, host Cenk Uygur calls out hypocrite and now Mitt Romney running mate paul Ryan for his hypocrisy on "big government" supposedly being detrimental to people's lives. As Cenk explained, Ryan knows full well that's not true since he himself has either been dependent on or employed by government the better part of his own life.

And after having voted for every budget busting initiative and two wars left off the books under Bush, Ryan now wants to pretend he's a deficit hawk. Typical Republican. I got mine and too bad, so sad for everyone else. I would hope this continues to get some traction in the rest of the media as well. Ryan was happy to have a leg up from the government when he needed it, but now he wants to take those same benefits away for others.
