Skip to comments.Paul Ryan says Republicans ‘look like fools’ with shutdown looming

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) criticized Republican lawmakers over their inability to agree on spending bills as the Oct. 1 government shutdown deadline draws closer.
“It’s nihilism, is what it is,” Ryan said during an event in Wisconsin. “We look like fools. We look like we can’t govern.”
A handful of Republican hard-liners have refused to agree on spending, preventing the chamber from passing a short-term funding measure to avoid a shutdown. Infighting within the House GOP has been happening for weeks, with current Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) unable to make either side happy.
On Tuesday night, House Republicans were able to advanced four of the 12 full-year appropriations bills. While it does nothing to avert a shutdown later this week, McCarthy hopes it will build momentum toward passing a short-term funding bill.

Maybe so but they still have jobs.
The democrats want a shutdown so they can make people suffer
Do you want to know what looks foolish?
The inability of the house to pass budgets.
In other words, the inability of the house TO DO THEIR DAMN JOBS!!!!!
That is what makes them look foolish
Eddie Munster said what?
The former lead assistant democrat speaks.
Ryan is a major reason Fox News sucks.
Sure, give into communism. But at least it looks like we can govern, right?
The GOPe wing is detestable. They stand for nothing and have no courage. Paul Ryan is the poster boy for that.
Paul Ryan is an expert on the subject. Can’t he just go away and stay gone?
It’s a win win situation for the Libs. A shutdown and they can make people suffer and blame it on the Republicans. If no shutdown they get all that money to spend and steal.
Sure, Eddie (Munster). We need to get a bloated budget enacted immediately so your cush K-street lobbying job won’t be unduly negatively impact. Screw you and the horse you rode in on, buddy.
“...the inability of the house TO DO THEIR DAMN JOBS!!!!!”
As of May 4, 2023, the base salary for all Members of Congress is $174,000.
Why doesn’t this puke just come out as a Dem. Much easier than continuing his pretense.
:: Ryan said during an event in Wisconsin. “We look like fools. We look like we can’t govern. ::
Translated through the neocon descrambler, Ryan said, “This isn’t how Republicans play politics. We need to slowly give up our unity and strength!”
Fed.gov is adding debt at $2 Trillion-per-year rate now.
This massive debt is funding 10,000 woke-marxist government social-engineering and political schemes to transform the nation.
The inflation it is causing will put half the country into poverty, while government and its cronies will reap the benefits.
Paul Ryan is the fool.
He’s being intentionally disingenuous. Both Ryan and Boehner did the same thing intentionally.
They dithered until September, so that the threat of a shutdown and the yelling and screaming created phony pressure so they could fund the government at the same or higher levels.

I’m not so sure a shutdown is a bad thing for Republicans. It’s about time to say stop the spending madness. A few weeks of a government shutdown will focus attention on the issue. The power of the purse must be reasserted. Fiscally conservative Republicans will benefit. Oh and f rat faced, back stabbing traitor Paul Ryan. He had a Republican majority and did nothing with it to spitefully undermine Trump.
And he certainly knows what a fool looks like (in his mirror)
Yes, this is the game they play, every year.
