Paul Ryan has led one healthcare repeal debacle, and handed the President the most obnoxious budget in history, and people are furious!
His approval rating has plummeted to a low of 22 percent with 40% of all Republicans disapproving.
The 18-point gap represents a major shift since February, when unfavorable opinions of the Speaker outweighed positive ones by just 1 percentage point.
It is important to note that these numbers came out BEFORE this week’s major budget blunder! The question remains: How low can he go?
The numbers come from the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll published Monday.
The Hill reports:
The growing dissatisfaction with Ryan coincides with increasing disapproval of the Republican-controlled Congress.
Nearly three-fourths of Americans in the poll disapprove of the performance of Congress. The disapproval rating has spiked 12 points since February.
Only one-fifth of Americans approve of Congress’s performance, a 9-point decline since February.
The new poll follows House Republicans’ failed attempt to pass legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Lack of support for the bill forced Ryan to pull the legislation before a scheduled vote.
The Paul Ryan budget funds Planned Parenthood and ObamaCare and nixes the border wall.
Ken Cuccinelli stated it so eloquently. GOP leaders in Congress have completely surrendered control over federal spending to the Democrats.
The new spending bill written by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell represents yet another betrayal of the voters who elected them.
Instead of fighting for President Trump’s budget priorities, the bill funds Planned Parenthood, it funds sanctuary cities, it subsidizes Obamacare, and it fails to fund the border wall.
We gave them the House, the Senate, and the White House yet nothing has changed. President Trump was prepared to fight the Democrats, but GOP leaders in Congress refused.
What is the point of electing Republicans if they won’t fight?
Nancy Pelosi and the entire DNC are laughing their butts off!
I’d be willing to let a Democrat beat Paul Ryan and take his seat for two years just to be rid of him. Primarying him is difficult and removing him from Speaker via the house floor is almost impossible.
Take him out! He is a traitor! Donald Trump best fight this. THIS was the main reason he was elected!
The only positive I found in the Paul Ryan budget was that the Education Department got some slashing. It was one of the few departments to see their budget trimmed under the new spending bill. The $68 billion budget is $1.2 billion lower than the spending level enacted in 2016 and $2.3 billion lower than President Barack Obama proposed for this year.
The rest is nonsense! DC is full of waste, fraud and abuse and this year, that will not change.
Paul Ryan has proven that he is a waste of space. When are the American people going to rise up? The infection is in both parties. Political differences aside, DC is a swamp of people that are literally criminals.
Paul Ryan is wasting taxpayer monies. He is using those monies to make deals that solely benefit himself! Insanity at it’s finest!
