Ryan, Over You

NYT tonight says Dems starting to focus on Paul Ryan's OTHER views, such as anti-gay marriage and votes to cut odd funding for Planned Parenthood.  So, on abortion rights: "I’m as pro-life as a person gets," he said not long ago.  Also: "He is a co-sponsor of a bill that would define fetuses as people entitled to full legal protection, a proposal that has become the latest focus in the battles over abortion."

-- "Mr. Ryan voted in 2009 against a bill that would expand federal hate crime laws to cover offenses based on a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity."

--"He voted in 1999 against a proposal that would have established much more stringent requirements for background checks on people buying firearms at gun shows. He voted last year for a gun-rights bill under which a permit to carry a concealed firearm in one state would be valid in almost every other state. 

--Mr. Ryan also voted last year for a bill stipulating that no federal money could be made available to NPR.

-- And so on.
