I think Biden know all the facts, not Ryan. i do think it was alittle rude and childish and should not have been handled the way biden was acting, but he was the clear winner.

Joe Biden's lie as he stated: "With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution — Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital — none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact." The Catholic Church responded back today: "No, it’s not, and the USCCB harshly condemned Biden for lying. In a statement, they said: This is not a fact. The HHS mandate contains a narrow, four-part exemption for certain ‘religious employers.’ That exemption was made final in February and does not extend to ‘Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital,’ or any other religious charity that offers its services to all, regardless of the faith of those served." So metoo who lied again? This is just one of Biden's lies. Do your own research for the others. I can see why your no longer with Los Alamitos any longer.
