ㅤô¿ô …The ultra-conservatives had their opportunity. Trump will not give them a second chance.

ㅤ"’Scuttlebutt is that Paul will have to step down from speakership soon,’ a source close to Republican leadership told Axios. ‘Members won’t follow a lame duck, he’ll have no leverage to cut deals, and the last thing they need in this environment is six months of palace intrigue and everyone stabbing everyone else in the back.’"

ㅤô¿ô …Scumbags. Not a single one of them cited the Republicans’ FAILURE to pass healthcare reform, which the real reason they have slim chance of being re-elected.
ㅤCongress also failed to fund the border wall, pass immigration reform or provide country-wide infrastructure funding. They did manage to pass the biggest spending bill in GOP history, which included funding for planned parenthood, funding for New York City infrastructure and a huge increase in defense spending to please the egomaniac John McCain.
ㅤThen these pussies have the gall to claim President Trump made them quit before being defeated.

ㅤ”Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky claimed Tuesday on ‘Fox & Friends’ that Congress will only call for votes if they already know the outcome in advance.”
ㅤô¿ô …I think this has been been going on among legislatures from their inception. The trouble these days is getting honest feedback in social media and the polls about their trial balloons.

ㅤ”‘It’s challenging. When you look at the historical trends, it could be tough to keep the House,’ said Brian Ballard, a Republican National Committee fundraiser and former lobbyist for the Trump Organization.
ㅤ’But the Senate map looks so good for us right now, it’s freeing up money for those who have maxed out to the Senate to do more to protect the House. That’s been the mentality of a lot of folks that I’m talking to. They know that if the Democrats take the House they’ll be looking to bury the President with investigations.'”

ㅤ”House conservatives are warning Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to take a hard line on immigration or else risk facing a revolt in his own ranks.”
ㅤô¿ô …Idle threats. It’s been difficult for Republicans to pass anything in the Senate. Clearly a pattern is emerging where the House Republicans will pass anything Senate Republicans are able to pass. There is a lot less pressure on Paul Ryan. Probably why Ryan seems much happier lately.

ㅤ”The bill passed in a 240-186 vote despite opposition from most Democrats, who had sought a firmer commitment from Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that he will bring immigration legislation to the floor for a vote that would protect immigrants who came to the United States as children from deportation.”

ㅤ”Speaker Paul Ryan signaled that next year he wants to tackle entitlement reform, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested that Republicans should move on from repealing Obamacare. Republicans will only have a one-seat majority in the Senate in 2018, which will make more contentious issues such as welfare reform and Obamacare repeal less politically viable, although some conservatives have argued that Republicans should focus on repealing Obamacare.
ㅤRep. Dave Brat, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, contended, ‘When I go back home, the No. 1 issue, by far, is still ObamaCare and major health-care reform that’s needed to bring these skyrocketing premiums to an end.'”
