Boehner's mirror image. Paul Ryan

Out of the chaos in Congress, following Kevin McCarthy’s decision to not become the most inarticulate speaker of the House ever (because SEX SCANDAL, allegedly,Boehner's mirror image.Paul Ryan is John Boehner-lite , the newly-elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives . Both these men as a placid and plastic copies of each other with the same party line. Now, imagine Paul Ryan, the man who is second in the United States presidential line of succession, curled up alone in a dark office on a sagging metal cot, with streaks of dappled moonlight shining across his face, his eyes wide open and staring into the darkness. This might be the (2)>>
 "conservative Apocalypse" . We could stomach the placid hard line of  John Boehner , we may have to endure an even harder line with Ryan. I suspect Ryan's nomination may come at the heels of Hillary Clinton winning? The Party of NO , may become the Party of NOWHERE . If Mrs. Clinton wins , the obvious political strategy is to gridlock Congress as much as it was under the Obama administration. Ryan is the perfect choice for this after all he sounds obnoxiously like Boehner . (***)>> Boehner gave a farewell address before the vote last Thursday, a day after the House approved a significant budget deal he negotiated with President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats. The legislation, which eliminates the possibility of a default and decreases the chance of a government shutdown, effectively gives Ryan a fresh start. As a "family man" Paul Ryan is the most anti-family republican.  House Speaker Paul Ryan pushed back against calls to expand paid family leave in a series of interviews televised Sunday, saying his commitment to spending weekends in Wisconsin with his family doesn't mean he's signing on to supporting "some new unfunded mandate." When asked on "Fox News Sunday" whether he would make paid family leave legislation a priority, Ryan stressed he was referring to spending weekends with his family and constituents in Janesville. (1)>> The Hypocrisy is in the details . It's OK for him to spend time with his family , but not you or me.  Hay paid leave ? ."I don't think people asked me to be speaker so I can take more money from hardworking taxpayers to create some new federal entitlement. But I think people want to have members of Congress that represent them, that are like them," Ryan said. "Don't you want your member of Congress to be a citizen legislator who lives with you, among you, who has your own kinds of concerns, who wants to spend time with his children on Saturdays and Sundays?  Ryan has also proposed slashing food stamps, one of the single most effective programs in lifting people out of poverty we currently have. Ryan’s 2014 budget would have cut more than $135
billion from the program. That single mother from Wisconsin earning $9 an hour would have seen her $11 per day allotment of food stamps for herself and her child cut significantly under the Ryan budget plan. With Boehner gone and McCarthy as speaker, nothing will change. Ryan is accepting the job based on a series of demands that he has made. Like any other job interview, Ryan’s prospective employers — members of his own political party — can accept his demands or tell him to shove off. But it seems like, for now, even the extremists in his party are willing to give Ryan most of what he wants.   So far, Republicans have all been looking up and shouting “Save us!” and Ryan has looked down and whispered, “No.” The man still wants to be president, and being speaker of the House of Loons doesn’t strike him as a hot prospect, although now “top GOP sources” tell the Washington Post that maybe Ryan is softening. Paul states the party has lost its vision. “This begins a new day in the House of Representatives,” Ryan told media after a majority of the Republican conference nominated him to be the next Speaker of the House. “Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) served with humility and distinction, and we owe him a debt of gratitude. But tomorrow we are turning the page. … We are going to move forward, we are going to unify. Our party has lost its vision, and we are going to replace it with a vision.” The Tea Party may also get rid of Ryan. Conservatives and tea party-type Republicans have responded to Rep. Paul Ryan’s list of speaker demands with some scathing words of resistance, calling on fellow-minded activists and politicians to stop his run for the House leadership slot. Tea Party Patriots, meanwhile, outright called for resistance against Ryan. Under a headline on its website that read “STOP PAUL RYAN,” the group called for activists to unite and kick off a telephone campaign to keep the Wisconsin congressman from taking the seat.

However it was all too late when the article was written .

(***)>>The next time Congress would have to deal with the debt ceiling increase would be March 2017. Government funding levels would be set through the end of the next fiscal year, taking a shutdown threat off of the table for the first year of Ryan’s speakership. Spending targets would be in place through the end of 2017. The idea of balancing the budget and not spending more than revenue receipts is a "lunatic" position? I guess unfettered spending, especially on social programs, yearly deficits and a doubling of the national debt in just 6 1/2 years is somehow fine? Liberalism and Socialism fiscal policies are simply unsustainable, except to those who believe like Bernie Sanders. What will you all do when the fiscsl house of cards all come tumbling down - blame the "lunatics" or those who created the unsustainable policies and debt in order to creat a government dependent underclass and to stay in power?(1)>> So it's okay for Ryan to take his weekends of that "We the people pay for" but won't back mandatory family leave, Because it would result in creating a new federal entitlement. Then I believe he shouldn't be allowed to have his weekends off when he should be working. He just gave himself a federal funded entitlement on our tax dollars. Ryan is painfully out of touch. He has zero clue about how the average salaried employee lives. Here's a hint: they don't work 4 days a week with 3 days reserved for traveling home and family time! (2)>>  "conservative Apocalypse". -"Paul Ryan represents one of the absolute worst outcomes for conservatives. " [Conservative Review] . "Conservative talk show hosts, including Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, have already denounced him as a dangerous moderate," according to Doyle McManus at the Los Angeles Times. "Tea party organizations are already raising money from supporters with appeals to stop any more Ryanesque budget deals."
