Ari Melber Describes the Republican Party

Lawrence O’Donnell interviewed Ari Melber of The Nation today. I thought what he had to say about Paul Ryan and the Republican Party was very good:

Paul Ryan was for earmarks before he was against them. He was for deficits before he was against them. And he’s part of a political party that inherited a surplus from a Democratic administration in 2001 and as you said in the introduction, spent their way into this big deficit. They are the party that goes out with you for dinner, orders not just appetizers and desert but two big fancy bottles of wine and when the check comes they start yelling at you and the restaurant and the waiter.

He notes that Paul Ryan voted in favor of 91% of the Bush era deficit increases. But he’s a fiscal conservative.
