Open Letter to Representative Paul Ryan Re: the Debt Ceiling

Dear Representative Ryan:

On the Sunday news shows you said that in order to raise the debt ceiling you want to “Get a handle on future borrowing”. Previously John Boehner stated that there will be no raise to the debt ceiling unless something “big” is attached to it.
On both counts the only thing that anyone can do that is both “serious”, “big” and “gets a handle on future borrowing” is to stop funding the wars and the American  Empire all over the planet. That is the only serious measure you can take that will appease the Tea Party. As an added benefit it will also appease conservatives, Democrats and Independents.
The very reason the debt ceiling is continuously raised is because of the wars!
You are falling short of your promises to cut spending to the Tea Party and the rest of Americans, because you and others continue to fund the wars, but want to cut funds for Planned Parenthood and Medicare and give tax cuts to the wealthiest corporations like Lockheed Martin Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp., Boeing Co., Raytheon Co., General Dynamics Corp., General Electric and KBR Inc., the biggest war contractors,  amongst others? Do you think we are brain dead?
You keep saying we have to get “spending under control”. You cannot do that Sir, if you continue to fund these eternal wars. Stop giving us lip service and do what the majority of all Americans want. Stop funding the highest bidders, the oligarchies that have put us into this mess. Stop funding the multiple wars we are in.
Stop stealing our democracy by continuing to serve the oligarchies that have bought the whole of Congress!
