Paul Ryan Demands “Family Time” – Voted Against Family Leave Bill

In the never ending saga that is the hypocrisy in the Republican Party, we bring you this little nugget from Paul Ryan.

One of the demands Paul Ryan made to the members of the Republican party last week, was that he get regular time off to spend with his family. According to Paul Ryan family time is very important and he wants to be around to see his kids grow up.

That’s a very fair and admirable statement.

But why wasn’t that same consideration given to other employees when the Paid Family Leave Bill hit the House floor for a vote? According to the results of the vote, Paul Ryan was one of the many Republicans who voted against the paid family leave bill.

To quote a report from the Jazebel on this topic, “perhaps if Paul Ryan hadn’t spent much of his political career fighting laws that promote realistic work-life balance for parents of all socioeconomic levels, asking for family time would make him look more like a hero and less like a hypocrite.”
