Isn’t it interesting that the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, Senator TIm Kaine is already out singing praises for Speaker Paul Ryan. It’s like the Democrats feel they have already won with Speaker Ryan supporting the left’s progressive agenda. Afterall, Ryan has sided more often than not with Democrats and Obama in the past few years when it comes to passing policies. It’s NO different with Amnesty!
Ryan was on Obama’s side when it came time to fund Obamacare. Ryan was on Obama’s side when it came time to sign the spending bill that funded sanctuary cities, unconstitutional executive amnesty and the expansion of refugees and resettlement. Ryan was even on Obama’s side when it came time to promote trade and supported the 6-year Trade Promotion Authority (TPA). He basically gave Obama the “fast track” on TPP. So, it’s not surprising that Sen. Kaine would say “Ryan is – key to passing Clinton’s agenda” is it? Afterall, Ryan is like the “cheerleader on the side” for progressives and moving America more to the left, where Democrats, like Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine stand. They would love to keep their progressive agenda moving right along with the expansion of Social Security. How else do you think they can continue to support all the illegals they plan to continue to bring into our country? We don’t have to guess which side of Amnesty Ryan’s on, based on his past history. It’s NOT good!
For the liberal wing of the Democratic Party seeking to coalesce behind Hillary Clinton, her running mate’s recent comments praising House Speaker Paul Ryan aren’t sitting well.
Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia said he didn’t think Democrats would take back the House, telling CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday that Ryan will be a key to passing Clinton’s agenda.
“Paul Ryan was supposed to be a breath of fresh air,” said Representative Raul Grijalva of Arizona, a Sanders delegate who spoke Monday night at the party convention in Philadelphia. “But I’ve seen no more comity, or compromise, under Ryan.”
“He’s being pressured by the same people,” Grijalva said, referring to the House Freedom Caucus and other conservatives.
Kelly Ward, the executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which is working to take back the House, said working with the Republican speaker “doesn’t mean you can get things done in the House.”
The comments reflect a natural split between the strategy of the presidential ticket and that for congressional candidates.
House Democrats are making the pitch that the party has to retake both chambers, not just the Senate, to have any chance of enacting a truly progressive agenda. Clinton and Kaine, meanwhile, want to sell a general-election audience on their ability to get things done in a divided government, given the nearly insurmountable odds of winning the 30 extra seats needed to return the speaker’s gavel to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
But Kaine insisted on Sunday that Clinton’s agenda wouldn’t be “DOA” despite a Republican House because of Ryan.
He noted that Ryan helped solve the 2013 shutdown showdown over defunding Obamacare, and his admiration for Ryan continued after he took the speaker’s gavel from John Boehner last year and helped craft a bipartisan spending bill.
“He wants to do things,” Kaine said. “He wants not just a portrait but he would like a legacy. That’s my belief. There’s going to be room to make some things happen.”
That’s not an exciting prospect to many of the delegates in Philadelphia hoping for big changes, like a doubling of the minimum wage, tax hikes on the wealthy, universal pre-school, debt-free public colleges and other campaign promises being made by Clinton and so far rejected by congressional Republicans.
Paul Ryan needs to remember who got him elected – Conservatives! Thank goodness for the Freedom Caucus and other conservatives who continue to try and keep Speaker Ryan in check. But you can kiss our borders good-bye if Hillary Clinton gets elected. If you think we have even the slightest control over our borders now with Obama in charge, wait until Clinton’s president. It will be like flood waters breaking the damn when it comes to illegal immigrants. There won’t be ANY borders if Hillary Clinton’s our next president. She will make Obama look like a “light-weight” when it comes to increasing illegal immigration and legalizing it in America. Unfortunately, Kaine’s right…Speaker Ryan supports Amnesty!
It will be as Ann Coulter says “Adios America“!
There is a better answer – Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen for Congress. Nehlen is running against Paul Ryan and the primary is August 9th. Ryan is on the WRONG side when it comes to closed borders and America. You have two choices – 1) VOTE NEHLEN for CLOSED BORDERS or 2) Pay for Amnesty!
