Paul Ryan Forgot He Wrote the Budgets?

Did Paul Ryan forget that he is the one who wrote the budgets that caused the Sequestration in the first place and they never did anything Obama wanted anyway? Does he forget on purpose or is he just that dumb?

Does he really think Republicans are that stupid and didn't know the GOP controlled the House and Senate?

Paul Ryan's Pants on Fire claim on Air Force pilots forced to scrounge for airplane parts in museums


So, this is a sweeping claim: Air Force pilots, crippled by inadequate funding, being forced to scavenge for parts in museums to keep their own planes flying.
Typically we don’t use many quotes in our fact checks. But in this case, they seem to tell the story about Ryan’s claim:
"That’s a grotesque distortion," said Richard Aboulafia, vice president of analysis for the Teal Group Corp., which does research on the aerospace and defense industry.
"It’s grossly misleading," said Benjamin Friedman, a Cato Institute defense and homeland security studies research fellow.
"While I admire Ryan, and agree that there are some problems in military readiness, this kind of hyperbole needs to be called out," said Michael O’Hanlon, a senior fellow in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution.
