  • What? House GOP hasn’t sent health-care bill to the Senate, may need to vote again (Paul Ryan!!)

    As things get dicier in the White House, it’s a comfort to know we still have competent leadership in the House. Remember, although an earlier version of the AHCA would have reduced the deficit by $150 billion over 10 years according to CBO, Ryan and his team refused to wait for CBO’s score of the amended version that passed the House a few weeks ago. And because they didn’t, they ended up holding a Rose Garden ceremony for a bill that might end up being defective under parliamentary rules. Gross malpractice, if the new score is bad:
  • WOW! Paul Ryan’s Bill Forbids Funding for Trump Wall– But Allows It for Border Security in Mid East

    House Republicans released its $1.1 trillion 1,665 page spending bill that includes an average of approximately 210 words per page — —or about twice as long as the stimulus law (the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act”) that President Barack Obama signed less than a month after his inauguration in 2009. Speaker Paul Ryan and GOP leaders inserted language that specifically restricts any and all funding of the Trump border wall. However Paul Ryan’s bill will provide funding for border security in Jordan and Lebanon! Wow! From page 364 of the House spending bill: View image on Twitter Follow Jack Posobiec...

    Is the AHCA dead? When Hugh Hewitt asked Paul Ryan that question this morning, the House Speaker immediately answered that it’s actually very much alive — and moving toward resolution. Ryan says that a House vote is now “extremely close,” but Ryan declined to specify when a floor vote might come: House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday that Republicans are “extremely close” to having enough votes to pass legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act but would not say whether or not the legislation would come up for a vote this week. …In an interview with conservative...

    Paul Ryan is all talk and no action. He has continually failed the President, the GOP and the American people by his inability to garner enough votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, while overseeing a budget deal that does everything for the Democrats and nothing for his own party and the American citizens who voted for change! We the People did not vote for continued funding of Planned Parenthood, sanctuary cities, the EPA and open borders! Speaker Ryan is not draining the swamp; he's filling it. He is nothing more than an obstructionist and an establishment hack, whose goal is...

    So it looks like we have a 100% Democrat-approved budget. The Trump budget continuing resolution looks pretty much like the Obama budget continuing resolutions of the last 8 years – except bigger. This isn’t exactly the Contract with America we signed on for.I guess we’re to believe the Republican’s perennial “we’ll just take one bite of the apple at a time” approach will work this time?  When it’s never worked before?So in lieu of a border wall we’re to be satisfied with the end of Michelle’s rotten school lunches?While that’s nice for the lunchroom crowd today, the orchard continues to...

    From day one, President Trump has made it clear that securing the border is a top national priority. Republicans in Congress couldn’t agree more. That’s why this week, Congress will vote for the biggest increase in border security funding in a long time. Here’s what that means: More boots on the ground - Customs and Border Protection will see $12.2 billion in funding—$911 million above last fiscal year—which means more agents, enhanced technology, and better tools to stem the flow of illegal activities across our border, as President Trump requested in his own budget amendment. The end of “catch and...

    I will not rehash things I have said before concerning traitor Ryan. His ineffectiveness as a leader and untrustworthiness and to me his intent to derail the repeal and replace obamma care is an attack on Trump's promise. I still think Romney still has his finger in something related to Ryan's actions and inactions.

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) leadership was called into question by new voices Thursday night as hopes expire of passing a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare before President Donald Trump’s first 100 days end on Saturday. At a meeting on the Hill late Thursday night, the speaker and his House Republican leadership team decided to further delay the vote. With what appeared to be the acquiescence of conservatives in the Freedom Caucus and think-tanks like Club for Growth and FreedomWorks, who took much of the blame for the failure of the first attempt to pass the American...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | April 24,2017 | By Rebecca Ballhaus
    Americans hold dim views of Congress and of House Speaker Paul Ryan, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds, with favorable opinions declining since February. Nearly three-quarters of Americans disapprove of Congress’s job performance, up 12 percentage points since February, the poll found. Just one-fifth said they approve of the job Congress is doing, a drop of 9 points. Mr. Ryan (R., Wis.) is one focus of growing dissatisfaction, with 40% saying they view the House speaker negatively, compared with 22% who had a positive view—an 18-point gap. In February, unfavorable opinions outweighed positive ones by just 1 point.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump reportedly backed off his demand that Congress include a down payment for a wall spanning the entire U.S.-Mexico border in a crucial spending bill that must pass by Friday night to keep the government funded. Republican lawmakers have urged the president to focus on border security in general instead of the wall, which Democrats have called a poison pill that would cause them to reject the bill and shut down the government. Trump told a group of conservative reporters he invited to the White House on Monday that he was open to getting funding for the...

    Failure to pass, or failure to craft a decent law? Last month’s healthcare fiasco was, without question, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s baby. He fought for it, promoted it, inexplicably rushed it to the floor, did everything he could to corral reluctant legislators. Heck, there are reports that he was down on his knees begging congressmen to vote for it. It didn’t work. In the end, all he could do was looked on as it collapsed. Now, according to Gallup, his favorability numbers have done the same.

    It’s also lower than Trump’s, notes WaPo’s Amber Phillips. Trump is at 39 percent in this poll, a dismal number for a president at any stage but especially during what’s supposed to be his “honeymoon period” with voters. And still, he’s fully 10 points better than Ryan.How many different contributing factors are there for Ryan’s garbage numbers? I can think of at least four.His approval rating isn’t wildly different from Boehner’s or Pelosi’s. His disapproval rating, though? Hoo boy. Contributing factor one: He was, of course, the quarterback for the GOP’s much-hated health-care bill, which was polling at a...
  • GOP Leaders Dropping Border Wall Funds, Says Report (GOPe-a-dopes strike again!)

    Federal funding for one of President Donald Trump’s premier policy proposals may be excluded from the House GOP’s budget for Fiscal Year 2017-2018. House Democrats, along with a few House Republicans, are working around-the-clock to make sure funding for the estimated $12 billion border wall is not factored into the GOP budget, according to a report by The Hill. “With Democrats united against new wall funding, it’s unlikely the Republicans have the votes to get it through and prevent a government shutdown,” The Hill report stated. House Speaker Paul Ryan, in a statement to The Hill, seemed to concede that...

    New data shows that Ryan's job approval rating has dropped below 50% among both Republicans and Trump voters The American Health Care Act, the GOP replacement for Obamacare, is — at least for now — just a memory. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan himself has admitted that "Obamacare is the law of the land … for the foreseeable future." The latest Economist/YouGov Poll suggests that opinions of Ryan and the House Republicans, but not President Trump, have diminished after the GOP-majority House of Representatives failed to vote on the proposed health care legislation. And that loss of support comes...

    With control of House, Senate and the Presidency, and with so much that cries out to be done after eight years of Obama inaction and/or mismanagement, Republicans have a golden opportunity to advance their own electoral fortunes by doing well for their country. But all of this is endangered by the fact that their major congressional leader is a man without political instincts, skills, or judgment. It’s unfair to say that he is a RINO, or to question his value to the party as the source of ideas that are sometimes very useful. But it is not unfair to say...

    Paul Ryan should walk around Congress for the next couple of weeks wearing a sign around his neck that reads, “I am a failure.” It’s not that everyone else doesn’t already know that he’s a failure – oh, that’s one message that he’s succeeded in getting out Lima Charlie – it’s that it doesn’t seem like he knows that he’s a failure. Perhaps some signage would remind him to wipe that smug, smarmy grin off his face, and inspire him to achieve something other than nothing. Yet he’ll persist, with his unerring poor judgment, his undercurrent of condescension to anyone...
