GOP Member Of The House Releases Bombshell Statement On Paul Ryan
When America saw Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) endorse Mitt Romney while his father was still in the race and about to be cheated from the RNC (as he has been in Iowa), it was a blow that many within the liberty movement never forgave. Perhaps Dr. Ron Paul, his father, had told him to do so since he knew that it would place Rand well among the GOP leadership. It did, for Rand Paul stood on the debate stage and is a leading voice in D.C. today, often on TV. Still, when Ron Paul retired from political life and the Constitutional-minded among us drifted toward his son, that betrayal was always there as the knife handle protruded from our backs.
Regardless, Rand Paul has shown himself a loyal man of the Constitution and a blessing to the country. That said, it is not he who is the “new Ron Paul,” but rather, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI). This is a man who posts his every vote with a detailed explanation of “why and how” on his Facebook page, stands as boldly as anyone for liberty, and has the best ideas regarding healthcare, for instance. This man today has said what everyone on the right has been thinking about House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), and that is “We need either a change in direction from this speaker, or we need a new speaker.”
Ryan fumbled an ACA replacement bill that they had well over half of a decade to write, he is losing the tax reform battle, and has lost secured funds for The Wall (even though Obama had the money already in the leftover budget). Nothing that he has done has been of much of a help towards Trump’s goal of making the country great again, and yet he remains there standing, like a blemished hood piece on a priceless car. Amash, all but a Libertarian Party member himself (before Johnson ruined it), is calling for the GOP speaker – or whoever replaces him – to be “nonpartisan.”
Showing that he is not afraid to buck against his own party just as President Donald Trump has, Amash shows that he takes marching orders from NO ONE. “When we go home for the weekend, they give us a set of talking points. They say, ‘Here are your talking points.’ That’s not the way you’re supposed to represent a community,” he admitted. This should be major news for the next two weeks, but the media knows that the left does the same kind of thing, so it won’t be. Rather than present what would best help the areas that they represent, members of Congress are sent home with homework as if they were in grade school or robots who can not think independently. This is what he means by “nonpartisan,” not “catering to Democrats.”

Amash is not alone as other leaders are feeling the same way. Lou Dobbs on Fox News has suggested that Speaker Ryan is going to destroy the party. Judge Jeanine Pirro has called for his resignation, as well saying (in the longest run sentence ever), “Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the house. The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill, the one trumpeted to repeal and replace Obamacare, the one that he had seven years to work on, the one he had under lock and key in the basement of Congress, the one that had to be pulled to prevent the embarrassment of not having enough votes to pass.” With THAT many words, one can just feel the Republican fury headed towards Ryan.
Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), said that there are “no conversations going on,” in response, much to the chagrin of most Trump supporters who are wondering which side Ryan is on. His healthcare bill, for instance, was abysmal. Sure, it eliminated the fines and some of the costs, but that just meant that it was less abysmal than Obamacare. This analogy may be a good slogan for the Speaker; “Paul Ryan – better than Pelosi.”
That’s not saying much. That bar is set pretty low, indeed.
Breitbart reported that Amash then tried to “recenter” the conversation about his constituents in the town hall meeting by saying, “I’m the one holding a town hall here— not Donald Trump.” Once again proving that he likes to keep things on a level to where it affects the average man, there is a lot to be learned about the Congressman and how he works. For Amash and those like him, this is not about which side of the political spectrum one is on as much as what side of the Constitution the country is on, particularly the leadership.
As the nation waits to see just how the new presidency is going to play out, much of what is hoisted on Trump as “his doing” is really the fault of Ryan. Donald Trump should not be reacting to Ryan, but acting. It is the Speaker who should be reacting, making things happen that the White House needs to occur in order for the U.S. to again progress to a level of prosperity and security that is due to America. It is due to us because we suffered through the Bush years, we had to endure the pure destruction of everything that we loved about our nation under Obama, and now we have a chance at something more with Trump.
The issue is, with people like Paul “The RHINO” Ryan at the helm, nothing is getting done. The President did not promise the voters a healthcare bill that was somewhat less shaky than Obamacare, for example. He promised a great plan, and as Justin Amash has stated, Ryan is just not getting the job done. The Speaker of the House had previously ran to be President himself, but considering how badly things have gone for him even on this level, America may have dodged two bullets. One with Hillary and one with Ryan.
