But Mr. Speaker, you contradict yourself

I am amused by WI GOP Assembly Speaker Vos's Twitter ID - 
@repvos Proud conservative fighting to make Wisconsin more competitive by reducing the size of government.
- that is contradicted by two stories of his own making:
1. Vos's proud conservatism includes his taking between $150,000 and $350,000 in government assistance for his popcorn business during the pandemic.
2. Vos's proud conservatism and reducing the size of government includes his doubling the size of his staff to 14, and raising salaries, too, as he legislated 

and litigated to shift power from the Governor and Attorney General to the Legislature he co-manages with counterpart Scott Fitzgerald, the GOP Senate Majority Leader.
Vos adds seven positions to speaker’s office

That only counts if a Democrat were to do that.
