Tea Party Launches Campaign Against RINO Ryan for Speaker
The Tea Party Patriots is a conservative American political organization that promotes “fiscally responsible” activism as part of the Tea Party movement. Its mission is “to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.
Paul Ryan is NOT the guy.
The Tea Party Patriots released this statement on Wednesday.
As you’ve probably heard from media reports by now, last night Rep. Paul Ryan gave a speech to his colleagues in the Republican Conference meeting that he would accept the job of Speaker of the House as long as he could be a unifying force AND as long as the 3 major factions in the House got behind him. Oh, and there’s one other thing. He wants the Republican Conference to change the rules of the House to remove the power of Members to issue a motion to vacate the chair – which you’ll recall is the mechanism that Mark Meadows of North Carolina used to ultimately force John Boehner to step down.
So Paul Ryan wants to be Speaker as long as he can never be removed. He wants all future Speakers to never fear retribution from Members of Congress for doing a bad job. This is just another reason why Paul Ryan does not need to be the next Speaker of the House.
