Even though he has expressed no interest whatsoever in being the next Speaker of the House, replacing the outgoing RINO John “Bendover” Boehner, pro-amnesty Congressman Paul Ryan (RINO – WI) is getting pressured from the establishment in both political parties to run for the soon to be vacated position.
Corrupt leftist Democrat Senator Harry Reid (Commie – NV) announced on Tuesday that he is a “Paul Ryan fan” and said he not only hopes Ryan runs for the leadership position, but he hopes that Paul Ryan will be the next Republican speaker.
“He appears to me to be one of the people over there that would be reasonable. I mean look at some of the other people,” Reid said. “I don’t agree with him on much of what he does. I think what he’s done with Medicare and Medicaid, what he’s wanted to do I disagree with. But generally speaking we’ve been able to work with him.”
Reid must have forgotten that when Democrats were in control of the House and Senate, he and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi ruled with an iron fist, going so far as to lock Republicans out of meetings and refuse to bring to the floor votes on issues they didn’t like. The rules change when Republicans are in charge, and the GOP is dumb enough to fall for this game every time. Now that Republicans control the House and Senate, Reid wants someone “Democrats can work with,” i.e. steamroll over.
Paul Ryan, who has a Liberty Score of only 58% (out of a possible 100%) voting record, an “F” from Conservative Review, dropped out of favor the past two years after being a leader in fighting for amnesty for illegal aliens.
Harry Reid obviously sees Paul Ryan as a squish, like his predecessor Boehner, someone who will not fight for the Constitution and will not stand up to the Obama dictatorship or the Socialist-Democrat Party.
Conservatives are livid at GOP leadership, including Senator Majority Leader, RINO “Obama’s Mitch” McConnell, who have failed to deliver on their campaign promises to defund Obamacare, defund Obama’s illegal amnesty, defund Planned Parenthood, and to stop the Obama Iran Deal.
Instead, Republican leadership have become the “Surrender Caucus,” surrendering their constitutional power of the purse to Obama, funding every single one of his destructive policies.
