There is much to say about Speaker of the House Paul Ryan; and none of it is positive. The “party of hypocrites” has a true leader. Ryan denounced Trump constantly until he was elected, and he is now one of his biggest supporters. His tax plans, and economic policies would greatly harm the American people. At last count, the Republican-led House attempted to repeal the Affordable Care Act 54 times; and failed. Ryan claims that Republican politicians have finalized a new plan to replace “Obamacare;” there’s only one problem; no one will approve it.
It is no surprise that progressives and others on the left side of the aisle oppose the plan. They have always believed that both parties should work together to repair and improve the original law; not simply remove healthcare from 22 million Americans. But the lack of support from right wing groups makes it highly unlikely that this bill will become law.
Those on the right believe that it is poorly written. Groups such as the Koch brothers; one of the owners of the GOP; the TEA Party, the Club for Growth, and multiple individual Congressmen and Senators have offered multiple reasons why it is simply a bad piece of legislation.
Ryan is proud of it, and this proves that he is incompetent.
Without the illegitimate election of Trump, we would not have known what a devious, ambitious, and unqualified man Ryan was. He is a leader of the party of “no” and is responsible for the failure of our government. Along with Mitch, “the turtle,” McConnell, they have led their party into the dark and dismal past of America.
If our nation’s people care about the future of America, they will refuse to vote for Republicans in the 2018 midterms. All 435 Representatives are up for reelection, including Ryan.
Do the right thing; vote the ‘bums’ out of office.
