Skip to comments.Paul Ryan tells Tea Party to keep budget disagreements ‘within our conservative family’
Posted on 12/15/2013 4:30:03 PM PST by servo1969
Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan tried to calm the burgeoning feud between Republican Party leadership and its conservative critics over the budget deal passed in the House this week, requesting that the Tea Party keep these conversations within our family.
Ryan appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to discuss the budget deal he brokered with Washington Democratic Sen. Patty Murray. The agreement, which passed the House on Thursday, scraps nearly one third of sequester cuts and replaces them with promised future reductions. Conservative groups largely came out against the deal, prompting an angry tirade from Speaker of the House John Boehner this week against the tea party. Wallace asked Ryan about the split:
WALLACE: Are you getting fed up with these outside groups who talk tough from the sidelines?
RYAN: Look, I think John just got his Irish up there. I think these groups are valuable. They way I look at it is this: theyre part of our conservative family. Id prefer to keep these conversations within our family. John was frustrated because they came out against our agreement before we even reached an agreement.
I was frustrated about that as well, but I see the tea party as indispensable and valuable in helping keep the taxpayer in the game, keep Washington accountable. When we lost our majority in 06 we deserved to lose it then, and they helped us get our ship righted again by being fiscally conservative. I think what were doing here today weve tw0 thirds of the house conservatives voting for this i think this is a step in the right direction. Its not as far as I want to go, but its a step in the right direction.
Ryan later added hed love to talk to Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, who claims the deal will add to spending now without reducing the debt in the future. Marcos a good friend of mine. I disagree with him respectfully.
The congressman repeated his claim that the deal will maintain 92 percent of the sequester while avoiding government shutdowns, which have been political poison to Republicans in the past. He also cautioned that this deal didnt mean serious disagreements between Democrats and Republicans were a thing of the past.
Look, one step at a time Chris, he said. Patty Murray and I knew we werent going to solve every problem like the debt limit problem so we sought to find common ground to solve this problem, this problem being a shutdown possibly in January and then another shutdown possibly in October. And [Republicans] have got our principles established here.
The Tea Party
Primary this flaming ‘Rat A-Hole.
Paul Ryan tells Tea Party to keep budget disagreements within our conservative family
Translation: “You Tea Party Morons shut the hell up and take whatever we tell you to take”.
And I guess we’re just supposed to shut up and take it when we come under public attack from the GOP.
Last October, you were a rising star. Since then, your two main accomplishments seem to be:
There must be something in the water in Southern Wisconsin.
At least he is smarter than Boehner. He knows he needs Tea Party votes. Boehner just wrote us off.
Paul, give me something to work with here. Your agreement sucks ass and it worse than status quo. It increases spending and fees and give us nothing. Cuts in 2020+? That giving up an increase for the dreaded player to be named later. In other words. Nothing.
You can blame the big spending RINOS for this If they all stuck together they could have passed a continuing resolution..the RINOS wanted more defense spending and other spending .so Ryan was stuck trying to get a deal..
Or maybe it was just a feeble attempt at damage control.
WE WILL SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOF TOPS PAUL !
Actually, based on what he said here, he didn’t get snookered. He was negotiating preventing the Democrats from shutting down the government and allowing the media to blame it on Republicans. Based on this, his negotiations were successful. Murray got her spending increase, Ryan prevented a shut down, everyone won. At least in his mind.
Ryan and Boehner don’t just need to be primaries - they need to be defeated even if this means running a 3rd party or independent conservative candidate.
Budget deals with hardcore, spendthrift liberals like Patty Murray doesn’t inspire us Paul. What were you thinking? I swear when will these damn establishment RINOS stop giving life to the idiot, worthless liberals who are destroying this country.
That ship has sailed, Paul.
Pauly, you start listening, we’ll stop bitching.
He was a fool back then too, back when the Presidential race was going on. I seem to recall distinctly that his budget plan was all smoke and mirrors too. It “cut spending” by imagining that the United States was magically going to prosper at levels not seen in a decade. Thus the lower deficit wasn’t by actual spending cuts, but by increased revenue that he imagined into his math.
Stop throwing poop at us calling it steak and we’ll quit throwing it back at you. Moron.
I’d like to see Ryan get out his calculator and explain to us how many trillions of dollars the government can print to fund itself without causing serious damage to the country. Can we really go another 2 years at a trillion or more per year as this budget deal suggests?
The cheating dad says to keep his mistress out of the family breakup.
“I think these groups are valuable.”
IOW, we need your votes, now just shut up and vote for us.
And he has the nerve to tell conservatives to pipe down?
What about the RINOs, who are out there surrendering, groveling, and compromising this nation away to oblivion?
Zuckerberg-f**ker, Paul Ryan. Somebody make an anagram out of that!
We aren’t family, Ryan and you are not Reagan. Nice try though.
Tell that to Boehner.
Ryan left the Tea Party when he make that god awful deal on the bidget with the Rats.
Part of that bill, if I read it right, cuts the early retirement benefits of our military veterans, whom Ryan had well cuddled all during his election bids.
He’s becoming a turncoat.
Guess now the Tea Party officially is an abused “woman/person.”
“The agreement, which passed the House on Thursday, scraps nearly one third of sequester cuts and replaces them with promised future reductions.”
So, Ryan traded assured cuts for libtard promises of future cuts? Good move there, Skippy!
This is yet another piece of legislative tripe from the RINO’s and the socialists.
Too late, Paul. Your daddy Boner already told the world, loudly, that we conservatives have no credibility.
2-3 years starts in a few months, Rep Ryan...
Hannity show, Mar 27, 2012:
HANNITY: What happens in two to three years if the bond market says, too much debt, we cant give it to you anymore.
RYAN: We have a massive spike in interest rates. All the experts are telling us, we have about two to three years is the time frame they tell us, which is the bond markets. Remember, half of our debt is owned by foreigners. And 40 cents of every dollar government spends is borrowed money. So we are really in debt, I mean, to a huge amount. So the bond markets if they turn on us then our interest rates go up tremendously. That means car loans, housing loans, business loans, home loans, all of that is really expensive. It shuts down and slows down the economy. At the same time, you can have an inflation problem that can get out of control. So your money isnt buying much as it used to because of the Federal Reserve hasnt gotten inflation under control, weve got a real problem on our hands.
We’ve been telling the GOP party hacks for 2 election cycles now that we Conservatives are done with Battered Wife Syndrome.
We’re officially divorced from the party.
Anyone else who wants to continue to suffer abuse at their hands - no promise they make will ever be upheld, and no order of protection is going to save you.
We’re not related, Paul.
The problem, Cuzzin Paul is, you went against the family and we done kicked you out of the clan. Since you’re sleeping with the enemy, you can go hang with yer new in-laws now, just follow the smell of donkey crap...
Well-stated right out of the box, servo1969.
BUMP for GRRRRREAT FReeper comments.
We are beginning to see the slightest sparks of intelligence from the R party. Some of them are seeing that the 2014 elections are coming and they will need more than a few dollars from big donors to cover the expenses AND they will actually need votes to win. That has not apparently been a concern to them previously. It has even been said the R party is willing to “lose a few elections” to purge the conservatives from the R party.
If they purge the conservatives, they will lose a little more than a few elections. Don’t these fools realise the Dem party is playing for complete control. When Reid changes the filibuster rule, it should be a clue that the Dem party, if in control for long, will change the system to one-party rule. The judiciary is being permanently altered to one-party socialist control. The Senate is very far into socialist control, the executive branch is firmly in socialist control, and the regulatory branch is filled with leftist idealogues.
So, R party, where are you looking to operate in the future federal government? And, why would anyone vote for an R if there is nothing substantive associated with the R party. If it doesn’t mean anything, who will know about the R party?
Where is the strategy? Where is the leadership? This is the worst I have ever seen in political party management.
Nah, nothing in the water.
You just had a bright kid who was a rising conservative star become consumed by the Beltway. He's well on his way to being a high-paid lobbyist after his defeat next year, so he doesn't give a rat's rear about the base anymore.
Yep. I've worked in international business for 27 years. Negotiations 101 tells you to trade promises for promises and actions for actions. This applies to all cultures, all situations, all of the time.
Whoever trades actions for promises loses unless the terms are clearly limited and those limits are clearly defined. i.e., you will get your spending increases for 3 months. If the promised actions do not follow in 2 months, then they are gone.
I gave up completely on Ryan when he endorsed gay adoptions, and then made those Zuckerberg-funded pro-amnesty commercials. That told me right then and there that this is a guy I can never trust.
This guy is going to beat Ryan?
He is bold faced liar.
He cut retired military benefits but left his cushy lifestyle in check !
This was all about Amnesty folks.
this K street crook is owned by Adelson and orher Amnesty billionaires !
this fraud needs to be removed from congress !
Who are his primary opponents?
Democrat Rob Zerban announces run for Congress
Um, wasn’t it Boner who ranted in a mic, in public, at a press conference dissing the Partiers? Er, Paul, clean thy House first.....
I’m OK with that Paul, as soon as you admit we’re right.
God clearly knows what he is doing. We dodge a huge bullet in having this idiot as Vice President. Yieks!
Ryan is pathetic. He has no value, none but thinks he has value to offer. He is delusional and full of himself. His ideas and plans are mediocre at best, yet he thinks he is a force that can lead America. Mickey Mouse was a description of Ryan that Levin used to good effect but I like Mickey and think Mickey is more of a leader than Ryan.
