Aside from the occasional PowerPoint, its really not clear what the man is good for.
His bill was to preserve the power Fedzilla derives from Obamacare and the control of all health care and medical records.
He is good for the Uniparty.
Paul Ryan is Viewed by the Entire establishment as wildly successful. He completely tarnished and destroyed any reform of Health Insurance without even forcing a Vote so the American People could see for themselves the treasonous bastards in action.
That my friends in pure political mastery, trust me this is a BIG WIN for Paul Ryan. The American People? well, that’s another story
WUZZIE RYANO.....et tu Ryano
Wow! Can’t believe I agree with Slate!
Paul Ryan - the Great Pretender.
He was never anything at all. His whole career is based on his faux showmanship. This is a man who lost (big) in a debate to Crazy Joe "Mind If I Massage Your Wife's Shoulders" Biden.
This is a man who decided the best way to save money in 2013 was to cut the pensions of military vets, including 100% disabled combat veterans missing limbs.
This is a man who told House Republicans he would backstab Donald Trump, forever.
“House Speaker Paul Ryan ... said, ‘and, well, were feeling those growing pains today.’”
The only pains we’re feeling, Ryan, is having you as Speaker pushing your Chamber of Commerce bills.
“... ‘I will not sugarcoat this. This is a disappointing day for us.’”
But we are not disappointed, but jubilant to have had your warmed over ObummerCare 2.0 bill killed.
Now, do the honorable thing and resign.
He was a loser RINO (Demo-lite) when they picked him ... should have picked Louie Gohmert.
I won’t join the uber liberal Slate in bashing Ryan. The guy has a thankless job, and he certainly isn’t popular with the Democrat party.
He may need to be re-invigorated with some conservative principles, inspired to catch a new vision as to what it means to say “government cannot solve our problems” and the depth to which Constitutional, limited federal power should go.
But to repeatedly bash this man does not do any good.
I know Slate is an ultra-left site, but they have a point.
There is an office that is only rarely mentioned, but should right now be the focus of conservatives in the House.
The office is of the “Parliamentarian of the United States House of Representatives.” The current Parliamentarian is Thomas J. Wickham Jr.
He is the one man who determines what parts of Obamacare can go to the conference committee for repeal, from the House. There is also a Senate Parliamentarian, who does the same for the senate.
Just a few days ago, he chimed in to say that the Ryan proposal could have gone a LOT further to repeal Obamacare in the conference committee.
So right now, the Freedom Caucus needs to get an explicit list of every part of Obamacare that can go to the conference committee for repeal.
Then demand a “clean bill” with ALL of this be voted on by the House. This will be the MAXIMUM amount of Obamacare that can be repealed right now.
Conservatives in the senate would do the same there.
More than anything else, this would be a “separating the sheep from the goats” vote. It would give Republican liberals an opportunity to commit political suicide by voting to keep Obamacare.
It would give the people clarity about who supports the people, and who supports globalism and special interests.
By demanding a clean bill to go to conference, the truth will win out.
Ryan must go. The GOPe is stabbing POTUS in the back. Primary them. Give no money to the RNC.
Please jump off the capital you worthless GOPe dope
Paul Ryan tried to pull an Obama and ram his ACA Repeal Bill on the American public. In this case, he had an unfinished bill which would be like building an airplane without the landing gear. It was a toxic bill given the same rush job the Obama Regime pulled. However, Ryan’s rush job was for show and ignored the disaster it would create if it was left unfinished.
He played that “I’m still learning” card when he first became speaker and gave Obama everything he wanted and more in his budget bill. He’s a POS traitor.
Paul Ryan is pathetic. And inept. He is said to be intelligent but I wouldn’t trust him to care for a goldfish.
