PLS CALL: NO to Paul Ryan for Speaker!

October 22, 2015

After John Boehner announced his resignation as Speaker of the House and Kevin McCarthy withdrew from the race to succeed him, the Republican kingmakers turned in desperation to Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI).

Ryan is a Republican the establishment can count on. He loyally sides with leadership over conservatives in the House, and has helped punish members who voted their conscience.

Furthermore, his own record includes support for liberal agenda items. He voted to grant homosexuals special rights in 2007 (ENDA), said yes to the 2008 Wall Street bailouts (TARP), and proudly supports amnesty. Just this year, while voting with the weak leadership to fund every one of President Obama’s priorities, Ryan led the fight in the House to grant the president more power to negotiate trade deals. Ryan’s Democratic fans include Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and pro-amnesty fanatic Rep. Luis Gutierrez.

If you have a Republican congressman, please contact him today and urge him or her to oppose Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House.
