Paul Ryan: Good Riddance To A Narcissistic Psychopath
Congress will be a better place without Paul Ryan.
Congress will be a better place without Paul Ryan.
The fattest rat of all has abandoned ship.
Rumors are swirling yet again that House Speaker Paul Ryan is set to resign and be replaced by Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.).
What was used to be a necessary bipartisan agency has become an annoying impediment for a party done with free and fair elections.
Not $150. $1.50. One dollar and two quarters more. A week. We have reached peak aristocracy. Time to get out the guillotines.
Paul Nehlen is quite literally running on a platform of "I hate Jews."
The rats are getting nervous as the blue tidal wave closes in.
The tax cuts passed in the Senate are nothing more than a colossal, naked giveaway to giant corporations and the ultra rich. They add an astonishing $1.4 trillion to the national debt and are deeply unpopular.
Paul Nehlen is openly spewing white nationalist hate speech as he runs to unseat Paul Ryan. He won't be the last.
While the left is still reeling from the abominable tax plan just passed by the Republican Party, NY Mag's Jonathan Chait points out that in the long term, this is about the best thing that could have ever happened to the Democrats.
Speaking at a town hall event last night, Ryan doubled down on the GOP talking point that Obamacare is a complete failure. “The status quo is not an option. Obamacare is not working,” he said, “We’ve got dozens of counties around America that have zero insurers left.”
There is no question where their priorities lay and that's tragic.
Showing all the spine of a slug covered in salt, Paul Ryan continues to be a profile in Republican courage.
Why can't both parties work together? This is why and it's not a bipartisan issue.
Trump is so disorganized and incompetent that he hasn't bothered to hire people to run the basic infrastructure of government -- this despite being in power for over 5 months.
The details of the bill are absolutely horrifying and should cause be cause for extreme panic should it become law.
Paul Ryan is sabotaging his own healthcare reform and that might be the plan.
"They were told a bunch of crazy nonsense"
It turns out Republicans were right all along: Trump could be played.
Paul Ryan’s humiliation at the defeat of the American Health Care Act was welcomed because it saved lives. But rest assured, Paul Ryan radicalized vision of a less secure safety net for Americans has not gone away.
"It is hard to imagine the electoral reckoning that would follow the implementation of this law."
Congressional Republicans are growing increasingly frustrated that they are not getting guidance from the White House on major issues.
The GOP is planning an all out assault on women's rights, but they will not have the last laugh.
Any polling or facts that contradict the GOP agenda will be henceforth written off as "fake news" or whatever the hell else Trump blurts on Twitter.
Republican leadership held its first news conference since Trump's win and proved they are a merry group of hypocrites.
Hillary is going to accomplish her goals and Republicans can either take some of the credit or get steamrolled by the Clinton juggernaut
Man, that kind of scathing condemnation from Ryan over Trump's latest horrific comment is surely the thing that's finally going to turn Trump around and make him see the error of his ways.
This is why you practice out loud first.
When pressed by a Republican student on his support for Trump at a CNN Town Hall, Ryan summed up the state of his party in one testy sentence.
At least he's consistent.
We're all now just spirits dwelling in some alternate dimension.
As if the "gun show loophole" is even a thing, amirite?
I'm sure he came up with something reasonable.
Ryan's probably the only guy who can hold together the various factions of the dysfunctional Republican House. He's like Nick Fury if you can imagine the Avengers as a bunch of ten-year-olds gorging on paint chips.
While impossible to predict the nature of the 2016 Presidential election, we can be sure it won't be a battle of ideas. Because one side categorically doesn't have any.
Even if he can't do it in public, it's nice to know that President Obama notices the badly-concealed racism that the rest of us are constantly pointing out.
Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) hit upon a popular Republican theme when he told a crowd at a conservative think tank that unemployed Americans just don't want to work, and would rather "just sit around."
Nate Silver and Ezra Klein, two of the left's smartest smart guys, are saying usefully dumb shit these days. Their down-the-middle "credibility" grab is understandable, but why is the rest of the left so afraid to call them out?
Rand Paul won't have an easy path to the nomination, but more and more it's looking like he'll have the easiest.
Now that Rick Perry has convinced us he’s smart because of his new glasses, it’s time other possible presidential candidates take a page out of the governor’s playbook.
Jonathan Chait wound up writing the single dumbest paragraph about racism, in the single dumbest six million-word column about racism, that you will ever read on a site that isn't The Daily Caller.
The GOP never will, because they don’t want to. In order to do so they’d have to see poor people as citizens contributing to society, not as takers. They’d have to see them as I see them: as people worthy of respect and dignity.
Last week, Bill Maher told the New York Times that his show will attempt to oust a sitting member of Congress. Moreover, he will ask his viewers to help him select the congressperson that is both terrible enough and in a competitive enough race to get the bullseye put on their back.
It’s Wednesday. It is what you make of it. Here’s what’s happening on the interweb:
During a House-Senate budget conference committee meeting on Wednesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders took the time to school his Republican colleagues on the actual causes of the deficit.
