Paul Ryan To Take Private Tour Of Racine Gun Manufacturer

Paul Ryan has decided to skip his traditional August listening sessions this year after leaving D.C. for a command performance with the Koch brothers in New Mexico a couple of weeks ago.

He is, however, returning to Racine today* - but you can't see him. This visit is private. Another command type performance.

Paul Ryan will be visiting Kolar Arms on Roosevelt Street, because nothing spells j-o-b-s like g-u-n-s.

It's interesting that the week we discover State Representative, Scott Suder's former chief of staff received a half-million dollar grant for his fakey United Sportsman front group - Ryan privately visits the city with the highest unemployment in his district to say howdy to a hunting and target rifle guy.

No listening sessions on how to apply for Obamacare which starts in a few weeks. Not his job. He had all the conversations he's going to have on immigration (that would be 1) and he's got better things to do before he heads back to Washington to take yet another vote to repeal Obamacare (lucky number 42?).

*UPDATE: We have heard that Ryan was in Racine on Wednesday and visited Case and other big wigs. Our source may have been a day late on the visit - either way, it was hush, hush.
