June 24th, 2013 11:10 AM

Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) made some statements about Congress Monday though by no means earth shaking explain the low level of trust Americans have in the institution.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Ryan said the worst thing about working in Congress is “a lot of people lie…You know they know they’re doing it.”

MIKA BRZEZINSKI, CO-HOST: And a lot’s been thrown at you, like one word answers. Best thing about working in Congress, worst thing about working in Congress?

CONGRESSMAN PAUL RYAN (R-WISCONSIN): Best thing you can make a difference in people's lives. Worst thing is a lot of people lie.


RYAN: Yeah, I mean you see that a lot.

PARKER: They look you right in the eye and lie to you.

RYAN: Absolutely, and you know that they're doing it. That's what drives me crazy. You know they know they’re doing it.
