Paul Ryan Not The Jews’ Cup-of-Tea
‘Jewish voters problematic for Paul Ryan’ excerpt:
Time and again over the past year, Ryan has voted against stronger Iran sanctions. He opposed measures to prevent any business dealings with Iran’s crude oil industry, to punish mineral companies that do business with Iran, and to block Iranian government-tied enterprises from raising funds in the United States. Ryan voted “no” on a measure ensuring that companies violating the Iran Sanctions Act could not profit from American oil leases, “no” on blocking an American business from partnering with a British mining company with ties to Iran, and “no” on an effort to deny tax benefits to businesses that illegally engage with Iran.
Earlier in his career, Ryan even voted against a proposal to cut $359 million from our contributions to the World Bank – the value of World Bank loans to Iran — and redirect those funds away from Iran to humanitarian aid efforts across the globe.
