Rep Steve King says that House members are getting increasingly irritable at Deep State Paul Ryan and that there are plans to vote to vacate the seat after Ryan tries to pass a massive amnesty bill that Democrats want very badly before the November elections that does nothing to shut the open door immigration policy Ryan favors for his bosses in big business who want cheap labor. I wonder which one of them will hire Ryan at a huge salary if he can deliver this for them.
“It’s kind of odd that he has as much power as he has. But I do predict, and it is happening, that that power is diminishing.”
“I also have got information that there are–I’ll say ‘members’–I say that plurally, with knowledge, that are considering introducing a motion to vacate the chair. If they do that, that will throw this place into a tizzy and force the kind of election for a Speaker that may bring out someone who is a lot stronger on this.”
“From the time that Paul Ryan announced that he would be retiring at the end of this Congress, his juice has been diminished day by day by day,” King continued. “It’s not a personal thing. It’s just a function of how things work.
“He has less power, less influence, and yet he’s still leading us into this amnesty piece,” he explained, referring to the immigration compromise bill. “People are acting like he’s the Speaker of the House who will be deciding who can chair which committees, who can be seated on which committees, and whose bills move forward in the next Congress.”
“But that will not be the case,” King observed.
With the lone exception of tax cuts, Paul Ryan has been the most effective leader the Democrats have had over the past few years. No conservative cried when he announced his retirement.
