With the recent release of an Obama-sized stimulus package, President Trump has once again suffered defeat at the hands of Speaker Paul Ryan. A defeat that has drawn the ire of some of the Republican party’s most conservative members–and rightfully so. Speaker Ryan is perhaps the most dangerous enemy in the D.C. swamp.
Washington RINO’s, led by Ryan, conceded virtually everything to Democrats in the disastrous $1.1 trillion spending bill. And, it’s hard to tell which is most disturbing–what is or isn’t included in the package.
There is no funding for the border wall and no funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
But, there is funding for Planned Parenthood, sanctuary cities, and Obamacare. Speaking about the stimulus, head of the Senate Conservative Fund, Ken Cuccinelli, said “Instead of fighting for President Trump’s conservative budget priorities, they have surrendered to the Democrats once again.”
One would think that having a Republican majority in Congress, and a Republican president, would mean big changes, but that simply can’t happen with enemies like Paul Ryan calling the shots.
After his epic failure to secure the votes on repealing and replacing Obamacare, coupled with the budget disaster, it is becoming more clear that Ryan is working against President Trump. He is the proverbial…
Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
“It’s no different than if Hillary was elected; it’s a huge loss, and I’m livid. Paul Ryan’s House is a not conservative House,” said Republican Art Halvorson, who nearly defeated Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., in the 2016 primary with 49.4 percent of the vote. As expected, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have claimed victory.
Their “victory” may be short lived however, as Ryan’s days as speaker may be coming to an end. Ryan took over as Speaker of the House in 2015, after John Boehner resigned. Boehner was essentially forced out by conservatives who grew tired of his concessions to congressional Democrats.
While Ryan faces no immediate challenge to his position, speculation is growing that that will change in the near future.
“Republican leaders promised things would be different if Republicans won the White House, but this bill proves that nothing has changed,” said Cuccinelli. “This is why it is so important for Republican voters to elect true conservatives in the upcoming midterm elections.”
