Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Speaker Ryan Has His Leadership Questioned After Failing on Healthcare Bill Again

This time, it seemed as if the Freedom Caucus as well as prominent think tanks, such as the Club for Growth and FreedomWorks, had signed on for passage of the new version of the American Healthcare Act.

However, several moderate Republicans balked this time, with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy telling the media on Friday that the vote was postponed because “we’re still educating members.”

Whether or not a vote will come next week remains to be seen. But it does mark a major disappointing for President Donald Trump, who planned to accomplish healthcare reform in his first 100 days of presidency.

Last evening, both Laura Ingraham and Lou Dobbs appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program to blast Speaker Ryan for failing to get the job done.

Ingraham made it clear that she may be losing patience with Ryan as a leader. she characterized this latest failure as an “embarrassment.”

Paul Ryan was given this assignment to quarterback this legislation through the House. It wasn’t easy. It was going to be difficult. You have a lot of different factions, different people, different values, different personalities, but this is something you had to do. If you can’t get health care done, and done right, eight years after saying you were gonna do it … I don’t even know what to say about that. What does that say about your ability to lead at a critical time for our economy?”

Dobbs was even more caustic in his condemnation of Ryan’s handling of AHCA.

I think the man is absolutely a disaster. He’s become nothing less than a caricature as House speaker. He’s inept, and the conference, if they don’t get rid of him, we’re going to watch this nonsense go on in perpetuity.”

Dobbs advocated replacing Ryan as House Speaker by one of two members of the Freedom Caucus: Mark Meadows of North Carolina or Jim Jordan of Ohio.

Paul Ryan is not a conservative, never has been. His leadership team is a mixed bag of conservatives [and] moderates. The Freedom Caucus are traditional conservatives and great Americans, all of them. … You and I both know Mark [Meadows] and Jim Jordan … for the great Republicans they are. I think either one of those two would make such a terrific speaker.”

Ingraham and Dobbs are part of a growing number of people who are increasingly frustrated with Ryan’s inability to get behind Trump and move more legislation in the House of Representatives.
