Paul Ryan tells Tea Party to keep budget disagreements ‘within our conservative family’
The Daily Caller ^ | 12-15-2013 | Brendan Bordelon

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: they’re part of our conservative family. I’d 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 we’re doing here today — we’ve tw0 thirds of the house conservatives voting for this — i think this is a step in the right direction. It’s not as far as I want to go, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Ryan later added he’d “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. “Marco’s 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 didn’t 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 weren’t 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.”

Sorry Paul,

Last October, you were a rising star. Since then, your two main accomplishments seem to be:

  1. Getting snookered into a lopsided "compromise" by the dumbest member of the U.S. Senate.
  2. Losing a debate to Joe Biden.

How low can you go?

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..

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.

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.

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?

This clown just plopped his rear down and made a deal with none other than Patty Murray, who is arguably the most leftist and dumbest Senator around, and completely surrendered whatever remaining conservative principles he had.

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?

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.

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.

“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 can’t 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 isn’t buying much as it used to because of the Federal Reserve hasn’t gotten inflation under control, we’ve got a real problem on our hands.

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.

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.

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.
