Update 10/23/14: Ribble said here that he lost his doctor and his insurance because of health care reform, which Politifact rated as a "pants on fire" lie.
This tells us that a petition with 120,000 signatures was delivered to Ribble’s office telling him not to include Social Security cuts in fiscal discussions last year, which Ribble intended to do regardless of the fact Social Security does not contribute to the federal deficit…remember the whole “chained CPI” thing, which apparently has come around again as an issue as noted here?
And speaking of Social Security, he wants anyone relying on that popular federal program to get it in the proverbial neck, as it were, as noted here.
In a truly guttural move, Ribble actually scolded Sister Simone Campbell for asking government to help the poor (nice).
Here, Ribble ducked out early from a jobs fair to attend a campaign fundraiser (what a swell guy).
Ribble said here that government shouldn’t borrow, even though he personally carries a couple of hundred thousand in debt (the latter isn’t a crime, but don’t be so damn two-faced about it).
And OF COURSE he’s a member of the “Koch Caucus” (here).
