We are more than 80 days into Donald Trump’s Presidency and the sheer inaction in Congress is unbelievable.
With the exception of Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation, what has Congress done so far? Yes, they have passed a few small bills here and there. But none of the legislative agendas We the People voted for have made it through Congress…
The House of Representatives voted to repeal Obamacare dozens of times when Barack Obama was President. However, now that we have a President who would actually sign the bill, Paul Ryan couldn’t get it done.
Republicans have been promising tax reform for decades. Now that we have a President who will actually sign Conservative tax reform into law, the GOP is hiding from their promises. The White House announced that they were starting over on a tax reform bill because the GOP can’t all agree on it.
There’s the issue of border wall funding, which we focused on yesterday. Every single Republican in Congress campaigned on a promise to secure our border. Some of them have been around so long that they actually voted for the Border Wall bill in 2006. Yesterday, we got news that Paul Ryan and the GOP leadership decided to remove border wall funding from this year’s spending bill.
On every one of these issues, the failures can be traced right back to Paul Ryan. To his credit, Mitch McConnell is getting things done in the Senate. The problem is Paul Ryan.
Rasmussen released a new poll today showing President Trump at 47% approval nationwide. Alternatively, Rasmussen pegs Paul Ryan’s approval rating at an abysmal 39%. In Paul Ryan’s own Congressional District, he is less popular than Donald Trump.
The American people voted for an agenda that Paul Ryan is clearly not interested in carrying out.
We knew it was going to be like this. Paul Ryan went on record during the Presidential Campaign saying he would never support Donald Trump. He went on record criticizing most of his policy proposals.
Why would we ever think Paul Ryan would change his mind?
While Freedom Caucus Members are working to resurrect the Obamacare repeal bill, do you know where Paul Ryan is? He’s at Universal Studios, Hollywood (shown above) so he can go on the Harry Potter rides. Not a joke.
He has checked out.
When we ran our piece yesterday on Paul Ryan’s decision to pull funding for the boder wall from the budget, we got hundreds of responses on our Facebook page and by email. The number one response we got from people was that Ryan needs to be removed as Speaker of the House.
We completely agree.
We are closing in on the end of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office. Paul Ryan is now claiming that he needs at least twice as many days to get some of these agenda items through the House of Representatives.
He has completely failed so far but he’s asking for a second chance. What is the idiom say about “fool me twice?”
There was a special election in Kansas yesterday. Since Rep. Mike Pompeo became Donald Trump’s CIA chief, his seat has been vacant. This is a district that Donald Trump won by 27% in November. Last night, the Republican candidate won by only single digits. The writing is on the wall. This is what future elections look like if the agenda the American people voted for continues to be rejected in Congress.
Obamacare repeal is non-negotiable. Building the wall is non-negotiable. Tax reform is non-negotiable. But Paul Ryan doesn’t seem to get the message…
We are calling for the immediate replacement of Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House of Representatives. This isn’t a call that we make lightly or one that we particularly enjoy. But this has gone on long enough.
Ask yourself this: is this what you voted for? Completely surrendering on all of the major issues?
Honestly, is this what you voted for?
