Paul Ryan Gets Standing Ovation at Koch Donors Retreat After Repudiating Trumpís Trade Policies

JANESVILLE, WI — House Speaker Paul Ryan received a standing ovation from wealthy donors after denouncing the views of Republican voters, who are skeptical of so-called “free trade” deals.

Speaking at a lavish retreat for 400 donors hosted by a network helmed by libertarian billionaires Charles and David Koch, Paul Ryan suggested it was incumbent upon the Party to “repudiate” the views of Republican voters, who do not support Ryan and his donors’ trade agenda.

Ryan reportedly assured donors that he will work to “win some of these fights” and advance their agenda on trade — presumably meaning that Ryan plans to push through the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, supported by GOP donors.

The Washington Post reports that Ryan’s message was warmly received by those in attendance at the elite retreat — noting that Ryan was “clearly a favorite” amongst the network of donors:

The House speaker is clearly a favorite of the Koch donor network, and he was received with a standing ovation and whoops. The audience interrupted him several times with hearty applause.

Echoing the sentiment of Washington conservatives such as talk radio host Mark Levin, Ryan expressed his concern to donors that the Republican Party has been taken over by progressive populists, who fail to understand the benefits of multinational “free trade” deals.

Ryan told donors that the views of these voters must be “repudiated.”

“We are flirting with various forms of progressivism, and there are Republican forms of progressivism. Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican,” Ryan said. “We have to thoroughly debunk it, repudiate it.”

That's your problem, Ryan. We finally figured out who benefits and why, and who gets hosed. And that hacks like you profit from promulgating such.

Those “wealthy” donors don’t constitute votes. They (Ryan) think their money can buy votes to get him re-elected.

Tariffs are not the answer. Deregulate starting with EPA, OSHA, and the rest then lower corporate tax rates. America can compete if government gets the hell out of the way. We can kick China’s arse if we have business-friendly policies. Mexico too.

Hey, Ryan—here’s something to think about: I’m not against “free trade” in principle; I just want some “fair trade” thrown in there to stop the international trade muggings we have experienced under your “free trade” deals, you blockhead.

I see populist is the new “derogatory” name the RINOS and the “purist” conservative NeverTrumpers are using against Trump supporters. Now Ryan added progressive to the mix. I guess they think calling us out as lefties will rid themselves of Trump and us as well. Right, Lyin Ryan.

We would be much better off economically if we fund the federal budget through tariffs on goods imported from countries with whom we have massive trade deficits (China, Mexico) than if we fund the federal budget through an income tax as we do now.

The idea that Congress will ever dismantle the US welfare state so that we can compete with dollar-a-day Third World labor is a pipe dream.

And because the US is and will continue to be a welfare state, it is economic madness to permit businesses free access to the US market while discarding their American labor force in favor of Third World labor, while shifting onto taxpayers the massive lifetime costs associated with unemployment and underemployment, food, healthcare, housing, crime and addiction of the American workers who been discarded.

Ryan: Doing things the GOPe way allowed the Left to turn America into a lite version of the Soviet Union. Another term for them will turn it into the heavy version. Now sit down and shut up.

Here is my fear. Ryan is being set up to be the President once they move on impeaching Trump. I cannot think of any other reason the establishment is hot on Ryan.
