Paul Ryan Will be Doing Nothing until He Retires

Republican Losers

For the last 9 years, 3 months, and 3 days Republicans have done nothing to improve the lives of the voting public. They will claim that I’m mistaken, because they passed “tax reform.” This bill was a gift to the wealthy and will harm the majority; it doesn’t count. Paul Ryan has admitted that he will be doing nothing, again, until he retires in January.

First of all, let’s be completely honest; Republicans do nothing unless they see a political advantage in the results. They do not serve the majority, they serve themselves and special interests. Changes are needed in the tax bill, but Republicans will likely refuse to make any alterations. They are fearful that the majority will once again be reminded that their tax cuts are temporary, while the cuts for corporations and the wealthy are permanent.

Republicans prefer to remain invisible in the hopes of retaining control of the House and Senate, or at least one of the houses of Congress. Special elections this year have been a disaster for the GOP, and if the trend continues, and women, millenials, and our next voting group which is still in high school keep their passion and remain resolved, November 6th could see a record voter turnout.

Although Republicans control the House and the Senate, they cannot agree on anything. ‘Doing nothing’ will be standard operating procedure until next January or February.

Only one Republican has kept his word for the last 9+ years; Mitch McConnell. In January of 2009 he promised that his party would do nothing as long as a black man remained in the White House. He has continued to be faithful to that promise although we now have a white supremacist sitting behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office.

Here’s the worst part of this story; Republicans have everything they want and remain incompetent. They are entirely unable to govern. We need only look back to Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and now Trump to realize that all Republicans lack the ability to lead in the modern world.

Let’s eliminate Republicans from the House and Senate and restore our government. Partisanship has failed as it should.
