Where Has Paul Ryan Been During the Latest Shutdown Debate?

With Congress locked in near-continuous budget and debt limit battles, one influential lawmaker has been noticeably quiet this year.

Rep. Paul D. Ryan, the House Budget chairman and the GOP’s 2012 vice presidential candidate, has been a trusted, go-to source on budget and fiscal issues in the party for years. Yet the Wisconsin Republican has not, seemingly, been at the forefront of the most recent fight over a stopgap spending bill, nor has he been a loud voice on the debt limit.

And that has some Republicans scratching their heads.

“It’s a legitimate question. I have no idea,” Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah said in response to a question about why Ryan hasn’t been more vocal.

“I don’t know that I can really answer that question,” said House Agriculture Chairman Frank D. Lucas of Oklahoma. “Maybe he’s got a lot of things going on. I just don’t know.”

Republican after Republican spoke highly of the GOP star, saying Ryan remains a thought-leader in the conference.

“He is certainly someone that all of us look to for his ability as a budgetary technician,” said Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona. “His advice, I think, is always not only insightful, but has a compelling impact on most of the members of the conference.”

But even aides who note that Ryan has been vocal behind closed doors say he could be more active.

“Members obviously trust and respect his position on these issues — it’d be helpful to hear more from him in selling our package to the conference,” a senior GOP aide told CQ Roll Call.

Ryan hasn’t been seen standing side by side with leadership selling various continuing resolution or debt limit strategies to the American people, as he once did. Nor has he been seen standing up to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas or bringing a dose of sobering political and economic reality to the fight to defund Obamacare.

Instead, Ryan has largely stayed out of the divisive intraparty battles over budget issues. Though he successfully pushed an austere budget resolution through the House earlier this year, he has said little as spending bills crafted under his blueprint have failed to garner rank-and-file GOP support.

Asked why he hasn’t been more visible on these economic issues, Ryan said he’s still “doing my job.”

“Just because you haven’t seen me on TV every day — I say things when I have something meaningful to say,” Ryan told CQ Roll Call.

Members and aides say Ryan has been quietly engaged and engaging.

“Chairman Ryan continues to be a leader on these issues,” a House leadership aide told CQ Roll Call. “He has worked with us on the debt limit and CR strategy.”

Rules Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said Ryan is involved, even if he hasn’t been at the forefront of the issues.

“Paul Ryan has probably the highest level of intellectual curiosity and direction, and is a team leader that keeps us focused on the answer,” Sessions said. “Paul is not trying to jump in front of these, but he certainly is nowhere on the second row.”

But why isn’t Ryan willing to be out front on those issues?

Republicans were not inclined to speculate, but Democrats had little problem spinning theories.

“I think that the basic dynamic of all this is pretty damn clear,” said House Ways and Means ranking member Sander M. Levin. “They’re divided, there really is no alternative. If they don’t come forth, this economy is badly hurt, and I think a lot of Republicans don’t want to be identified with that.”

The Michigan Democrat said he thought there was “a hesitancy to be associated with the result of what happens from their extremism.”

Rep. Alcee L. Hastings, D-Fla., suggested that “Paul is a lot more reasonable than some of the people that you do see in the forefront, certainly he’s more reasonable — and anybody is — than Ted Cruz.”

But as much as Democrats — and Republicans — seem to enjoy criticizing Cruz, the Texas senator has raised his profile with the CR and Obamacare issue, perhaps fueling his presidential prospects.

For Ryan, who is also rumored to be in the running for 2016, the calculus might be exactly the opposite.

By seemingly staying out of the fight, Ryan avoids the blowback if the government shut downs, if Obamacare is not defunded and if Congress fails to raise the debt limit.

For Ryan, name recognition is no problem, and he has always aimed to attract mainstream conservatives, many of whom believe the effort to defund Obamacare is a folly.

Staying silent and keeping off camera allows Ryan to let Congress work its will — and if it really came to it, perhaps he could step in as a fresh voice in the Republican Conference to urge his colleagues to keep the government and the global financial market running.

And Ryan may have calculated that his voice is better heard behind closed doors for now.

Of course, the chairman has been keeping busy. Besides working behind the scenes to find a compromise on immigration, he is writing a book, titled “Where Do We Go From Here?”

Many Republicans have been wondering that themselves and could be looking to Ryan to tell them.

  • Gregagolf

    Maybe listening to AC/DC or Led Zeplin!

    • Voter

      Why does Paul Ryan want to create 30 million democrat voters via amnesty? I guess he really loves Hillary Clinton and wants to create constituents for Obamacare.

      • Goon

        He needs to be primaried, the good people of Wisconsin deserve better. .

      • josh

        BC Paul Ryan is a communist infiltrator and a traitor to the American people. He is a bought and paid for puppet.

  • NepotismIsDomesticTerrorism

    Rules Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said Ryan is involved, even if he hasn’t been at the forefront of the issues.

    “Paul Ryan has probably the highest level of intellectual curiosity and direction, and is a team leader that keeps us focused on the answer,” Sessions said. “Paul is not trying to jump in front of these, but he certainly is nowhere on the second row.”


    Paul Ryan, Leading from Behind.


    • Dylan Felts

      Good grief!!! Not another one.

      • SWohio

        I thought he was trying to redeem himself with his support of defunding obamacare.

        Apparently I was wrong.

  • darleenclick

    When Progressive Democrats use the word “reasonable” what they really mean is people willing to kiss their feet. Their visceral hatred of Ted Cruz (which used to be directed against Paul Ryan) is the mark that Cruz is on the right path.

    • Filbert Brazil

      it is not “visceral hatred.” it is wonderment at how you rubes can continually be taken by flim-flam men like raffi.”

      • Voter

        As opposed to the inexperienced community organizer? At least Cruz has a position on something. Obama doesn’t have any deep values.

        • buddman

          But he has deep pockets with our money

  • Chaz22

    How many personalities does this man have ? I mean , he fought tooth and nail to help the House in particular and the party in general, now he acts like it doesn’t matter if he’s around or not . And he’s the fiscal hawk of Congress. There is something going on there that…well…is strange . I think somebody should corner him and find out ; actually , he owes it to us and the faithful peers of the House to come out with the real truth .
    I remember shortly after the election was over he went into hiding for months. He acted scared to death of fame- like he just couldn’t handle it . He litterally ran down the street with reporters running after him and yelling . He wouldn’t even stop to answer one question . When the press came in one door he would sneek out the back door fearfully . WHAT should we think of that ?
    I say to him ” SHAME on you for shirking your responsibility now of all times ! Don’t you think you owe it to your peers to try ? A horrible thought comes to me : maybe he doesn’t know enough about the issues to say anything . I hope I’m wrong!
    Maybe he’s a total actor, and has them all fooled . Maybe he just wants to do the funest thing and to hell with the rest of it. WHAT is it ? Whatever- he should do a fast turn-around and get to work. If not he may not be forgiven this time .

    • Superpower

      America is fresh out of ‘benefit of the doubts’ for these political chameleons. He’s gone!

    • matism

      He s a Rove Republican. Like many OTHERS in that party. Democrat Lite. Nothing more. By and large, the two parties have become nothing more than opposite ends of the same steaming turd. The only difference is whose cronies get to slop at the government trough when THEY are in charge.

      • typicalwhiteguy

        Yet further proof that the American “2-partysystem” has devolved into US (the self-sufficient American citizens), against THEM (the ruling class, the parasites and the unscrupulous media).

    • Goon

      Paul Ryan is a RINO who has been exposed, finally.

      • Chaz22

        I don’t see that being a “RINO” has anything to do with it . What we have a right to know is WHY the Chairman of the Budget Committee in Congress is not on the job. He , according to everything I’ve read, has a lot to offer at a time like this. Everyone is wondering why he’s acting like he’s bashful or something . There must be an explaination.
        I hate to say this because I have been a fan of his , but could it be what he needs is a psychologist ? I have a feeling something is very wrong .
        In my humble opinion I would say that he is in the wrong business. Believe it or not, he is NOT a public person or a performer . I do not think he is unattractive by any means, and I think he really IS smart , but he is actually a shy, nerdy person who is awkward at speaking “off the cuff” .
        Whatever, it is a shame, because he is killing himself.

      He has spent his whole life in politics. He knows literally nothing else

  • johnB

    i work on the hill and have seen paul ryan twice in the last week, both times wearing ipod headphones and strolling around rather lackadaisically

  • RobPG

    Paul Ryan has ended his national career and quite possibly his Wisconsin one. I would send money to anybody willing to primary him.

    • WCommentary

      I’m in Illinois and would gladly knock on doors to help primary Ryan. I wouldn’t even mind if a Democrat defeated him in the general. Then we could move on. Peter King said Ted Cruz is a fraud; Ryan’s the fraud. It is unbelievable that people actually think he is the budget guru; how?

      • Marlene Hessler

        Please do not go dem in the 2014 election. Get some other Repub, even if you have to run. We take 5 dem senators out in Nov and Dirty Harry goes out. Impeachment will then pass both houses and the end of the corruption is in sight.

        • Dunnyveg

          You mean like the Republican senate went along with Beelzebubba’s impeachment?

      • Brian Cunningham

        The budget guru voted for No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, TARP, the auto bailout and EVERY debt ceiling increase.

        • Klaus

          Will there be anything left for Huma Clinton to accomplish in 2016-2024?

      • freevoter2016

        Peter King started to sing a different tune after a beltway rumor cast his integrity into question several months ago. The media stopped in its track why for a Republican never, I guess we will never know. Its typical DC politics to get something on your opponent and shut them up.

        • Klaus

          Peter King proves that 9/11 was an inside job. If Al Qaida really carried out 9/11, then Uncle Sam would not be arming and funding Al Qaida in Syria.

      • Feliciene

        Ryan & Cruz are not frauds & Peter King should have never called Cruz a fraud either. They are just different types of politicians.

      • silentfor56years

        Peter King is a fraud!

    • Superpower

      Me too.

    • Scott Coleman

      It is so sad. Ryan, along with Rubio, are very big disappointments.

      • Obama_Dogeater

        And they both must be sent home for good.

        • Jkjljmt_Pqprpstt

          • TheCoffinMaker

            He looks so much like Weiner …have you checked his Facebook account? or maybe the local YMCA?

          • Brian Astby

            The looks come from NY/NJ jew inbreeding.

          • Bill1969xxx

            Paul Ryan is an Irish Catholic you piece of human waste. Your mother should have aborted you.

          • Feliciene

            What a horrible comment & 10 likes? Talk about hatred because he is trying to do something about immigration which is needed. These comments are as bad as the far left makes.

          • Jim Bo

            THIS is what the sane Republicans are up against. Can’t negotiate with crazy.

          • MJ Alton

            What a disgusting comment. I suggest educating yourself about the art of discussion and manners.

          • Feliciene

            He looks nothing like Weiner & he certainly wouldn’t do what Weiner did because he is a very decent guy. Too decent & not phony enough to be a politician.

          • knotjammin2

            Excellent Post J.P.!!!

          • Dunnyveg

            Here is what I have done in the past to send a message to these open borders, we-are-the-world Republicans: At election time I go to a big bank and buy small-denomination Mexican peso notes, and send them as campaign donations, along with a sarcastic note congratulating them for their patriotism.

          • Sally Turnip

            I didn’t realize there was any honor in being a Mexican, and they can pay for their own trip.

          • nocab

            Mexico would send them back , they don’t want traitors , if they sell out America they will sell out Mexico also .

      • Brian Cunningham

        I was very excited when Romney selected Ryan as his running mate, but the more I have seen of him, the more disappointed I have been.
        Can anyone remember anything Paul Ryan did or said in the 2012 campaign (other than serving as a door mat for Slow Joe Biden)?

        • Akira88

          Instead of being disappointed where’s your outrage at the media ignoring huge issues? You know – Benghazi, Reid’s stonewalling, Obama twisting the arms of Senators —

          Doesn’t anyone question why Democrats are given a pass? No questions from the media why Democrats refused to pass the Republican resolutions?

          Paul Ryan hasn’t been in the news since last year. The media thinks we all suffer from ADD and are easily distracted.

          • John S. Perilloux

            We can be as outraged as we want to be because of the corruption of the news media, but there’s not a thing we can do about that. We CAN do something about Ryan though, and that’s vote him out.

        • HappyJohn9

          It’s apparent, now, that Ryan was a media selected VP candidate. A liberal in republican colors.

        • Thor Bonham

          Yes, he took a black girl to his prom .. That should tell you where allegiance lies ..

          • Dunnyveg

            Why don’t you go listen to NPR and sneer while sucking up your organic arugula and chablis, you liberal.

        • krusatyr

          Ryan gave factual, intelligent treatises on fixing deficits and debt, but now decided to take the establishment route to power, Cruz the populist/grassroots path.

          If Ryan delivers cheap peasant labor to big business, he has a lock on their campaign funding, is my read.

      • bitemeDC

        Yeah…I LOVED Paul Ryan…Amnesty has always been my “deal breaker”….

        • JoetheFilmmaker

          I never got past it when he brought his mom out.

        • Klaus

          Why did you LOVE Paul Ryan? You didn’t even know who he was. Why do you blindly follow leaders who are hand-picked for you outside of your control? Why are you always being asked to “give so-and-so a chance”? A chance to do what? Don’t they always do the same thing to you? When will you realize that R and D are fake opponents, owned and operated by the same globalist elite who are destroying your country by design?

          • Akira88

            Hey, Pal — we don’t even know who Obama is — and he’s the president.

          • Thor Bonham

        • call him pedro

          dont hold back. he is a traitor piece of fecal excrement, and the other pieces of paid-off pieces of rotting fecal excrement praise him in this article because they share the same smell and composition.

          Ryan/fecal filth has the same problem Rubio does, which is he destroyed himself and his career by embracing slave worker legalization for paying global corp scum.

          Now.. these two turds are seeking to keep quiet in hopes we will forget and elect them to SOMETHING again.

          Ryan may be able to get back into congress within his district, but he is a guaranteed loser in any presidential contest (unless he wants to switch over to the dem party).

          Even if the dems ran Hillary Clinton I would sit at home instead of vote for that treasonous piece of filth that calls itself paul amnesty ryan.

          • LibertyUnited

            Don’t you love how the globalists pick our Presidential candidates for us? The RINO’s and progressive DINO’S are one in the same. I’m tired of picking from the lessor of two evils. They are bought and paid for by special interests. Vote for Constitutionalists only. Rand Paul, Cruz, or Mike Lee have fought for the people and not the lobbyists.

        • Deg8890

          A weak link…I agree with you!!

      • BadWhisky

        I can at least understand Rubio somewhat, considering the background his parents came from…. NOT saying I agree with him…..

        • Thor Bonham

          HUH ? Who cares what his parents did or didn’t do, we have a constitution to be followed here , which he was elected to uphold.. It has no bearing on his personal feelings ..
          I know you don’t agree with him, but just listen to what you said ..

          • BadWhisky

            I did not say he was right, far from it, this is what you get when you put people in power that have divided loyalties and it is the exact reason for the Natural born citizen requirement for the executive. No you are taking what I said completely wrong; I said I understand his motivation, where as Ryan’s I do not. Understanding an individual’s motivation doesn’t make the actions right. I understand Ahmadinejad’s motivations and I know it might lead to world war 3 does that mean I agree with him, like him or condone him? NO….

      • Klaus

        Ryan and Rubio are doing great jobs … destroying the Republican party. It’s time for the Republican voters to take a knee and let Ryan and Rubio run the ball in for the score. Then y’all can rally around Canadian Football League standout, Ted Cruz, whose wife works for Goldman Sachs, Obama’s biggest supporter. GOP RIP.

        • Feliciene

          I guess to some they are not loudmouths so you turn on them. They are not destroying the party, it’s just that some people like extremism & we get it from both sides.

      • Jonathan777

        I have $20 bills earmarked for both Ryan and Rubio’s challengers tucked away safely in my dresser drawer. McLame has a $50 with his name on it. I will not forget these traitors come election time.

          How can you “love” a RINO? There isn’t a conservative bone in his body!

      • Akira88

        Why isn’t Harry Reid or any other Democrat being investigated? Republicans are always in the news negatively. Where are the mainstream media questions about the Senate stonewalling? Where’s the articles about Chuck Schumer? Bringing up Paul Ryan and blathering on to fill up space makes no sense other than to divert the attention of people from real issues journalists refuse to confront.

          Why is that? Ryan’s doing more damage to the party than any democrat could.

        • WhereDidMyLibertyGo?

          Ryan is a democrat just as evil as any Kennedy and for the same reasons. Only this one hasn’t the integrity to declare his true allegiance. Hint: it’s not to the GOP and it sure as hell isn’t to America, the land that granted his worthless carcass succor in his time of need.

      • Nobel Sweepstakes Winner

        There is something to be said for substituting a recognizable foe out in the open and plain to all, vs. the skulking puppet Ryan undermining the republic in the background

      Agreed. Where can I find information to help get rid of/replace Ryan?

        DO NOT ADVOCATE REBELLION! You can’t fix stupid but you can vote it out!

        Just another laconic thought to ponder while thinking about the politicians (on both sides of the aisle) whom YOU voted into office, who are now usurping our Constitution! In only 399 days, within the constraints of the Constitution, “WE, THE PEOPLE” ” have a renewed responsibility to respond to our nationally elected leadership’s errant legislative attempts to circumvent our rights by voting in the 2014 mid–term elections . . .

        • M_J_S

          So far, no matter who we vote it is not working.

          Enough is enough. No, we will not be lured into public marches, but good luck collecting the money to fund their idiotic programs.

          Perhaps someone will hack into members of congress’ bank accounts and seize their assets? Let them fund illegals, because WE WILL NOT.

          • Lt_Scrounge

            Considering that one of the sections of the Obamacare law requires that the government be given full real time access to your bank accounts, how hard would it be for some hacker to access that information and drain the accounts of a number of high dollar Democrat donors? One can only hope.

          • wookiebush

            Except that all high dollar DemonRAT donors have been given exemptions from Obamacare, so that could not happen.


          • Lt_Scrounge

            They’ve been given unconstitutional waivers concerning the individual and business mandates, but I don’t think that they have been given full waivers. Even if they have, those waivers are only temporary.

          • Deb Sharpe

            Well, I can GUARANTEE one thing. If you vote Democratic in 2014 and/or 2016, we are royally screwed. Had Romney been elected, we’d be on our way to recovery right now.

        • Creative_Artists

          Exactly. No to rebellion. Yes to legitimate political action in the political arena. Our putative representatives have forgotten their role. They now represent themselves exclusively. We are all still to busy working and trying to feed the family. We are all still a little too worried about remaining comfortable. There is too much on the line to leave it to others.

        • Thor Bonham

          You act like M_S_J is the only voter in this country ..
          There is no other way but a rebellion, his vote gets cancelled out by the first democrat libtard scum that walks in ..
          Besides, you’re just regurgitating some talking heads talking points ( Mark Levin ) with the “vote them out” mantra .. Don’t get me wrong, I love Mark, but just happen to disagree with him on this point ..
          The country is on it’s last leg because people try the “vote them out” policy ..
          Tell me, is it working ? Now, do you see any other way ?

      Ryan must be wanting to put a stake in the heart of the GOP.

    • tkdblkblt

      I am absolutely disappointed in Ryan. I’m from Wisconsin. He has lost my support, as have most of the squishy republicans. It’s about time that we got some candidates who are truly conservative that will stand by their principles. I for one will probably sit out the 2014 election. It all depends on what happens with immigration; debt ceiling; abamacare and securing the border.

      I’m in full agreement. To think this guy might have been VP and then Prez. He is a traitor to his country, state, party, and Americans that work for a living. If he runs for anything, I will support his opponent with donations.

    • TheBitterClinger1

      I know little of Wisconsin but I am predicting this: Instead of Amnesty BROADENING the base of the Republican Party it will cause yet more normally Republican voters to sit on their votes or vote third party. John McCain’s New Rockefeller Republicanism ‘ain’t reaching nobody’ as it were. You just might find Americans of Mexican heritage-Republicans-furious at this pandering.
      Too many of these “young lions of the Republican Party” were all too soon tamed and neutered by the old guard. Rubio was punked by Schumer and McCain and even Cantor seems to be caving.

          • chucky greenwood

            Say what you want about Romney, but if he were president, we wouldn’t still be dealing with Obamacare, an Amnesty bill, gay marriage, DHS buying hundreds of millions of rounds, gun/magazine bans, Eric freakin Holder, the UN Small Arms Treaty, etc. Additionally, Romney was in support of auditing the Fed, reducing gov’t spending and size, a simplified tax code and many other good ideas. But apparently, since he wasn’t the “ideal” candidate, many Independents and Republicans didn’t vote and we’re stuck with Obama and all his great ideas for the next 3 years, and we get to hear these people complain as if they didn’t have a choice.

          • Unqualified?

            Romney was a terrible candidate who barely mentioned Obamacare during his campaign. He failed to attack Obama on too many issues because he listened to the typical establishment advisers. I’ll give you this; he was a much better candidate than McCain.

          • chucky greenwood

            True. He was a hundred times better than McCain. But, he definitely campaigned on Repealing Obamacare. He was running commercials out here on it, mentioned it in all the debates and had it as part of his 21 point plan or whatever it was called. He did lose the thing, in part, because he got soft in the debates, when he should’ve relentlessly hammered Obama. The GOP also blew it by letting the debates be hosted by lying idiots like Candy Crowley.

        • Hedley Lamar

          Romney was THE ONLY Republican candidate who was against amnesty.

          • matism

            Romney is FOR amnesty.

          • Hedley Lamar

            WRONG! Romney got into a heated argument with Gingrich and Perry during the debates who were both FOR amnesty. Romney said to go after the employers and the illegals would “self-deport”. Look it up.

          • chucky greenwood

            Romney was a strong supporter of e-Verify as well. He knew that if you would take away the jobs magnet, the problem would nearly fix itself.

          • Nobel Sweepstakes Winner

            Perry accused Romney of being “heartless”–if he’d thrown in “hostage-taker” and “terrorist” too, Perry could have made a great 2013 DNC spokesman

          • chucky greenwood

            You are correct, and we would not be having this discussion if Romney were president. He took a lot of heat for it, too. Some will remember the “self deport” comment. If you follow Numbers USA, you would see that Romney was tougher on illegal immigration than anyone except Michelle Bachman.

          • Feliciene

            I was a big supporter of Romney but I wished he wouldn’t have taken such a strong stand against it as he didn’t get too many Latino votes. He would have been such a good president.

          • Brian Cunningham

            In retrospect, it appears Mitt Romney was more conservative than Paul Ryan.

          • Nobel Sweepstakes Winner

            Damning with faint praise

          • Unqualified?

            He didn’t lose the election because of amnesty I can tell you. He lost because he didn’t go on the attack enough, said nothing while Obama hammered him early, barely mentioned Obamacare, and he listened to the wrong(establishment) advisers. You first must win over your base to stand a chance in a national election.

  • Unqualified?

    Ryan will be finished if he tries this. This is another example of our legislators not listening to their constituents. Hopefully they will fire him when he’s up for re-election.

    Paul Ryan claims to be a Randian capitalist, but he NEVER READ her, or obviously, could not grasp her ideas and principles. Ryan does not attack Corporate Welfare but he venomously attacks Workers. Rand opposed the Military and Religion as enslavers of the body and the mind, but Ryan grovels to both. Ryan is all FOR war ….. as long as HE does not have to put himself in “harm’s way”. Ryan is all FOR religion, as long as he does not have to show grace to the Working Class. Ryan strongly attacks Social Security, even though he cashed every single check after his Father died, and was so rich to begin with that he couls SAVE all those Social Security monies to pay for his college. He is a FRAUD.

  • KimsTruths

    I’m conservative, but we should have some type of work program for “currently employed illegals” but, they must prove they have been employed for the last 3 years and have been paying taxes, we can then put them on the slow track to citizenship at the back of the line. What we don’t need are to legalize NON working illegals who will only drain our funds via subsidized “everything.” We must ensure the illegals we put on a path to citizenship are hard working contributors and they must know ENGLISH and be able to pass a test to prove it. If they don’t have at least an 8th grade literacy level, they should have to learn before they get considered for a path to citizenship. No exceptions. Otherwise, we can pretty much assume they are going to be low level earners and need taxpayer support.

    While we are at it, we shouldn’t give any welfare to “Americans” if they can’t demonstrate an 8th grade proficiency in English. (unless they are handicapped) Why do we support the lazy and the weak, who have “chosen” to be that way. We should not. You know who I’m talking about here, the high school drop outs having 3 kids before they turn 20 years old. They should get nothing.

    • tham

      I thought the guest worker program made the most sense. No citizenship. They remain Mexicans and return to Mexico when the guest worker pass expires. There is a certain reality to these folks working in many aspects of America. OIbama isn’t even deporting the criminals at this point.

    • dareisay

      In 2009 our elite politicians brought in 1.2 million Visa workers, they want to double that number…this on top of millions we make citizens each year. There are not brought JOBS for us, let alone millions of foreigners!

    • Catoii

      The problem with any kind of requirements for amnesty is that the Obama administration will either game them or ignore them entirely. The immigration bureaucracy is already overwhelmed. There is simply no practical way they can verify things like whether an illegal immigrant has worked for the past three years (consider that they aren’t supposed to be allowed to work in the first place). So the Obama admin. will simply pretend to enforce such requirements. For example, they may just ask immigrants to sign a statement asserting that they meet them.

      The larger issue is, untrammeled immigration has absolutely destroyed our working class. If we were able to cut off immigration tomorrow, blue collar wages would rise and our current unemployed will be able to find work. But immigrants bring down wages for low skilled work, which makes going on unemployment or disability benefits more attractive than gardening or housecleaning for peanuts.

      The elites don’t mind because these illegals are never going to jeopardize their jobs, and they also get cheap labor for menial household tasks (nannying, gardening, cleaning). One of the greatest unspoken truths in our politics is that allowing illegal immigration hurts our poor the most, while helping the upper classes.

    • Nobel Sweepstakes Winner

      The path to citizenship is institutionally permanent due to automatic naturalization of any children born in U.S. territory. Then, family re-unification, then chain migration of estranged nephews and third-cousins. Illegals of all races & creeds happily abuse this dysfunctional system, apparently designed to serve everyone in the world aside from U.S. citizens, lately found to be undesirable to our elites’ taste

    After we learned that Paul Ryan wants illegal alien amnesty….he is toast…. just like Rubio…..He has shown that the does not want to do what is best for American citizens without jobs and supports only to elevate his political ambitions. No, we don’t want to legalize 30 million illegal aliens from the Third World that are sucking us dry. Plain and simple…Paul Ryan has shown that he is NOT a conservative.

    The Illegal Immigrants from Mexico are used to living in a country under the
    combined rule of Drug Lords and a Fascist Government. They have no concept of traditional American Liberty. The American corporations such as General Electric prefer partnering with Fascist governments such as China PRC. RINOs such as Ryan want Illegal Immigrants to make it impossible for Natural Born American citizens to elect a majority party that believes in traditional American Liberty. Either implementing ObamaFascistCare or converting Illegal Immigrants into voters will seal the deal to make the majority of the American voters subservient to a Fascist system of government. ObamaFascistCare will be a key to creating a Corporative State. A definition of a Corporative State follows: An “economic system inaugurated by the Fascist regime of Benito Mussolini in Italy. It was adapted in modified form under other European dictatorships, among them Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist regime in Germany and the Spanish regime of Francisco Franco [and now by the Fascist regime of Barry Soetoro]. Although the Italian system was based upon unlimited government control of economic life, it still preserved the framework of capitalism. Legislation of 1926 and later years set up 22 guilds, or associations, of employees and employers to administer various sectors of the national economy. These were represented in the national council of corporations. The corporations were generally weighted by the state in favor of the wealthy classes, and they served to combat socialism and syndicalism by absorbing the trade union movement. The Italian corporative state aimed in general at reduced consumption in the interest of militarization.”

  • Slappyhappy

    Romney made a BIG mistake in choosing Ryan as his VP running mate. Ryan is the face of taking away SS. 9 million Republicans didn’t show up on election day and many of these voters didn’t vote because Ryan is the no touch third rail. Well meaning idiot both he and Romney. How could they be so blind to reality. Now, Ryan his political career over wants amnesty. An investigating reporter wouldn’t have to dig very deep to uncover his future employer putting bundles of cash in his coffers. It’s all about the money. Ryan thinks he can run for the President.

    The Media Establishment is doing everything it can to support Obama’s dream of a Fascist America. As the New York Times was in 1922, the NYT and the American Media Establishment is in 2013. The New York Times was right there in the beginning of Fascism supporting Mussolini’s creation of Fascism. Please visit the NYT article as follows:


    “Scholar and Editor, Self Taught, Is Premier at Thirty-Eight, ONCE A SOCIALIST
    LEADER, Spectre of a Bolshevik Government Led Him to Organize Fascisti and
    Upset Cabinet”.

    By ALICE ROHE November 05, 1922,

    “EVERYTHING is possible in Italy. The speaker was Benite Mussolini, the
    new Italian Premier; the place was Rome; the time– just the other day. Since
    then his words have become reality. He has been swept into the seats of the

  • Steve White

    This is why the Republican congress has such low ratings! They say one thing to us, and work behind our backs playing democrat-lite. This whole thing is to replace conservatives who stayed home and didn’t vote for Romney with some sort of allegedly grateful Mexican immigrant, who they believe will suddenly vote for Republicans if they vote for amnesty.

    I used to think Mr. Ryan was a very promising young conservative politician. He said all the right things, made all the right noises. Actions, as they say, speak louder than words. Very disappointing.

    Ryan and Rubio need to be thrown from office as a message to the Republican Party: Treachery will not be rewarded. And we don’t care if that means a Democrat takes their place.

    The Big Government Republican Establishment must be eliminated.

  • god

    When you don’t hear from GOP elite, get ready to pull a knife out of your back. These turncoats always do the wrong thing in the middle of the night. Ryan is on the WRONG side of the immigration issue. He may be good on budgets but if he goes down the amnesty path and takes the GOP with him, you can kiss support from the base good-bye. The Tea party will move the needle one way or another, one candidate at a time. We’re sick of RINOS!

    Ryan is a back-stabbing traitor to the Americans who granted his ingrate people succor in their time of need (i.e., inviting the whole damned world to eat-out the substance of us Americans, without so much as a by-your-leave).

    Sadly, it seems to be a consistent character trait of his kind. No wonder the English did all in their power to crush them.

    OPEN LETTER TO PAUL RYAN : so you have chosen, once again, to dodge attention and find a safe hide-a-way . There has been quite a a bit of talk about this but nobody can answer the question “WHY ” ? My best advice to you would be : SPEAK UP AND TELL US WHY YOU ARE ACTING LIKE THAT !
    You seem to think you have what it takes to be a presidential candidate in 2016. Are you stupid or something ? Newsflash : a president has to be out there in front and communicating every day ! He has to be ready to face the cameras and speak any moment- he can’t slip out the back door and refuse to be a leader. What makes you think you can ever be president if you can’t face the music ?
    I wish you could read this, because you are killing yourself. You have had two wonderful oportunities to show what you are made of; to show the country that you can play an important roll, but you went into hiding . Or it seemed that way. Right after the 2012 election you vanished and everyone was puzzled. . After a while you joined the rest of the key Republican leaders and let yourself be heard. Now you are doing the same thing . You are missing a perfect chance to do your thing ( it’s all about budgets- you nitwit ) and you are afraid to stand up and do your job. We the people desserve an explaination. TALK !

    These are the RINOS. They’ve already been marked. So lets get them out. It doesn’t matter what they do now. They MUST go.

    Don’t forget, Rubio and Ryan campaigned to defund Obamacare while offering free healthcare to illegal immigrants. They’re appeasing to the illegal immigrants in order to gain enough support for their “signature amnesty” legislation. The whole scam tells me that Rubio and Ryan have no intention (and never had any intention) of defunding Obamacare. They’re just angling for time while they wait for the big one-party Dem/Rep merge.

    Get them out, folks. I’m doing my part– I’m donating to all the conservative contenders in 2014. NOT the GOP. The conservatives individually.

  • ordinary american

    Lying Ryan has also contracted the “self destruct” germ that Rubio was infected with. Ryan has no concept that what he is doing is to make sure that the GOP will become extinct. Right now the GOP is on the “Endangered Species List” and either Obamacare or Amnesty will insure that the GOP will become a footnote in history. The real shame is that we will become a one party country and that will be the end of the American Experiment! Didn’t this dumb bastrd learn anything form history? He lost the last election and has not idea the he, Romney and the other establishment republican dumb bastrds so alienated the religious middle, religious right, conservatives, libertarians, Tea Party, American Patriots, etc that enough of them did not vote for him. Lying Ryan did not lose because of the lack of the Hispanic vote. It was because of the lack of inclusiveness by the GOP. Like others who have commented I too will contribute to whomever is willing to primary this POS and other POS who votes for Obama care and Amnesty.

  • Old_Conservative

    If any Republican supports an amnesty plan for illegals (I say send them all back and come in the front door like everyone else!) they should be recalled or impeached. That type of Anti-American behavior simply must be terminated one way or another!

    Here is another one I can’t understand – Bush tried to force CRAMnesty down our throats twice during his 2 terms in office. I know Bush has relatives that are Mexican, but why is it they see the need to over-run the country with Mexicans. I know they want cheap labor, but these people don’t want America in the way my relatives did when they came from Europe. My grandmother became an American. She didn’t teach her children or her grandchildren how to speak her native language.

    The Mexican’s don’t want to learn English and they don’t really seem to like us. All they seem to want is the benefits our government will give them.

    Paul RINO the big gov planner. He showed up at the debate unprepared and got his but spanked by Joe Cverkoff Biden. Romney had done well in the first debate and then Ryan fell flat on his RINO face totally unprepared.

    His career is over. This guy is a loser.

    how about enforce the immigration laws ALREADY ON THE BOOKS? instead of amnesty for upto 58MM LOW-SKILLED illegals?

    There’s something odd going on when some hack journalist takes attention away from the unbelievable mess Obamacare will bring by blathering on about Paul Ryan – an ex pres candidate. It’s of no importance at all — not today. It’s only serving to get people riled about Republicans while the Democrats are left in their little bubble untouched by scrutiny.

  • Pepperspray137

    You know when the left calls (R)s stupid this is one of the reasons why. When the Amnesty takes effect they will seal their fates. No Mexican coming from Mexico is EVER going to vote (R) EVER. I don’t mean they disagree with republican policies, or their stand on moral issues, they just know that (R) = bad. It’s is the exact same with the Native American population out here, every single one I know and talk to about politics would NEVER vote (R) lest they be disowned and alienated. (R)s have some serious PR issues they need to work out before they increase the left’s voting bloc with so little thought. We on the right blame the left for “ruining America” and the right just hands them a few million more votes as if it’s going to do anything but strengthen their opposition.

    • Col Klink

      Those Nat-Am people are just doing what they believe is best for the working middle-class. Ive heard it before. But those days are over. As if voting matters anyway.

  • PatriotBill

    “For Ryan, name recognition is no problem, and he has always aimed to attract mainstream conservatives, many of whom believe the effort to defund Obamacare is a folly.”

    I have NEVER met a mainstream conservative who believes that the effort to defund Obamacare is a folly. Every conservative who I know, wants to end Obamacare. What a hit piece this article is!!

    I sure hope Paul Ryan takes note of how his former running mate, Mitt boy,ran his poorly planned campaign. Mitt clearly ignored his base and targeted independents and moderates. Look how well that strategy turned out. Millions of grass roots Republicans (conservatives) did not vote in the last election cycle. YET there are still those who wish to work with the other side and be non-confrontational. Do the Democrats work that way. They never quit even in the face of defeat. They all stand together on issues. NOT like our RHINO weak stomach turds. They slink down in their seats hoping that no one will notice their yellow bellies and quiver at the thought of standing together with their base. Ryan working on an amnesty deal makes me sick. Just like Marco Rubio. I am so done with these RHINO’s because they continue to ignore their base. We need to do something about it because they just do not get it anymore!!

  • downtownon911

    Paul Ryan is a fool on a fool’s errand.

  • Col Klink

    The immigration and gun control issues go together back and forth between the two because gun control is preparation for the coming civil war with govt backed immigrant cartel gangs, and the muslim refugees. They may even have a crusade here in north America and guess who will get caught in the middle.
    Hopefully it is still many years away, but this is what is taking shape!

  • ernaldin

    NO AMNESTY! Here illegally? GET OUT!

  • Sonshine

    Well in a country that selects it leaders like they buy the breakfast cereal what can you expect. American politics have always been about image not substance; especially when dealing with national elections.

  • Hedley Lamar

    Ryan is hiding under his desk because, like Rubio, he made himself irrelevant by advocating amnesty.

  • John Geyer

    Adios, Ryan.

  • disqus_hQ19w3VLjt

    I have written him many times and spoke to him once. This bill will result in 12 years of wage depression for Americans. How is that representing the americans you are supposed to represent? He represents those who have no right to representation at the expense of the American taxpayer. I agree with RobPG. Let’s get a real representive to challenge him.

  • AdmiralAkbarf

    If amnesty pushes through, the thousands and thousands of people who spend thousands of dollars in filing fees, travel time, and time off for themselves and their families to come here the right way should get a refund.

  • eeddggy

    Mr. Ryan, I can’t tell you just how severely disappointed working Americans are with you. Just disgraceful.

    Political Suicide. I thought there was more to Ryan. A big disappointment.

      Just think….he could have been Vice President.

  • Doug Doakes

    Amnesty is insanity for conservative Americans.

  • Ron

    I hope Paul Ryan is not willing to fall on his sword like Marco Rubio on Amnesty. Without assured strong border security Amnesty is out of the question.

    • gene456

      That means amnesty is forever out of the question, because the Democruds will NEVER, EVER secure the border.

  • bucketnutz

    I never understood why an American Congressman feels the need to represent people from another country over the interests of the people who he is supposed to represent.

    • Gas_Passer

      I would call a person like Congressmen Paul Ryan a “Benedict Arnold” of the Republican Congress and American people.

  • Deserttrek

  • Thomas

    Paul Ryan needs to become a democrat. NO AMNESTY!

  • Brian Astby

    Let’s primary this traitor.

  • SwaptionsNG

    Ryan’s presidential potential is finished. He made sure of that when he decided to back amnesty over law. He is working on amnesty because he feels its his “catholic” duty. And that’s fine and I respect his personal religious beliefs. But its not his political duty, which is to uphold the Constitution of the United States and protect our borders. Its Republicans like Ryan, Cantor and Boehner that allowed the country to be taken over by the left in the first place. They are too weak to stand up for principle.

    • DeadWhiteMan

      I’m a devout Catholic, and I can tell you that there is NO Catholic teaching stating that you must support amnesty or dictating anything specific about immigration.

      I would end all immigration, not just the illegal variety.

      • SwaptionsNG

        I agree with you sir. Thats why I didnt capitalize catholic in referring to Mr Ryans personal beliefs. I do not find any Catholic teaching supporting or dictating amnesty either, however Mr Ryan when talking to Democrat Mr Menendez said his cathloic teachings required him to support amnesty, thats what i was referring to.

        • DeadWhiteMan

          Don’t worry, I wasn’t implying that you were casting stones. I just wanted to make clear what the reality was since so many “catholic” individuals are misrepresenting the teachings. Heck, even Nancy Pelousy would talk about her alleged Catholicity. However, the recent smackdown the Vatican gave her should disabuse a few more people of the notion that she represents anything but the Devil.

          God bless

          • SwaptionsNG

  • jayballs

    We need immigration reform, there are many good Hispanics that been here for a long time and have families. I think they should serve in the military to become citizens or pay back taxes. We should kick out all the illegals that have committed crimes and also they need to learn and speak English! Don’t bash Ryan until we see what’s in his bill..

    • MinistryofFear

      His bill won’t matter. It gets sent to the Senate and then reconciled. Whatever positive items get yanked. Then they can pass it and say “See we tried, but the Dems fooled us!” Cover for all

    • gene456

      No, we do NOT need “immigration reform”. We already have very good immigration laws in place. They just need to be enforced – that’s all. Just because a bunch of slimy thieving TB-infested Pedros decide to break the law does not mean we must change the law.

      What a jerk.

    • DaveHolden

      I’m so sick of this. Why should the government benefit by NOT doing their job? If you do that, why would they ever secure the border. Don’t you people ever think? No wonder you are losing your country.

      “We should kick out all the illegals that have committed crimes….”

      Illegals are criminals and all should be deported.

  • Thor Bonham

  • knotjammin2

    Ryan, you need to stop working on a bill that brings in more illegals and start working on one that would help the legal citizens get back to work.

  • Steve N Adrienne Hughes

    When are we going to learn there isn’t but a few that wouldn’t sail all of us down the river for a little added sweet pork in a horrible bill as long as it gets his or her brain dead constituents to vote for them next election cycle. Now how good does that “crazy” Ron Paul look in comparison to the turn coat ticket Romney Ryan.

    • gene456

      He still looks crazy. Ryan may be a turncoat, I agree. But Ron Paul is still wacked out. Nice try, though.

      • DaveHolden

        How is he crazy? Sounds most like the Founding Fathers.

        • gene456

          • DaveHolden

            Yeah, outlawing plants should be the Federal Government’s concerns, right?

          • gene456

            Yes, it should. Drugs fcuk people up, including marijuana, which IS a gateway to harder drugs, in spite of the nonsense you people try to foist upon us. Every person I’ve ever known who has screwed his life up with drugs – and I’ve known a number of them – started out with pot. You want to deny that reality, be my guest. But that’s the truth.

            It’s little wonder why Ron Paul’s followers are such fanatics. The man is a modern-day Pied Piper.

          • DaveHolden

            “Every person I’ve ever known who has screwed his life up with drugs – and I’ve known a number of them – started out with pot.”

            If it is a gateway it is BECAUSE it is illegal. Ever consider that? Why aren’t cigarettes a gateway? Alcohol?

          • gene456

            That makes absolutely no sense. A lot of things are illegal. That doesn’t mean they lead to drug use. But pot DOES. Sorry, but again, that’s the truth.

          • gene456

            Right! Because marijuana is a gateway to other drugs, in spite of the absolute lies you people try to foist upon us.

      • Steve N Adrienne Hughes

    Paul Ryan would have been a shoe-in for the nomination in 2016. But that’s no longer the case. Like Rubio, the dope swallowed the McCain Kool-Aid, and now he’s tainted forever. Such a shame.

  • Feliciene

    Ryan is basically a very decent guy who doesn’t need the limelight as some politicians do. It doesn’t help him politically but I really like him & wish we had more politicians like him.

    • gene456

      Any Republican that a dirt bag like Alcee Hastings speaks well of CANNOT be good. Sorry, but if the Democruds and/or old media like him, then REAL Americans cannot. That’s the way it is.

      • Feliciene

        It’s sad how people turn on a decent politician the minute they don’t agree with him on some issues. I don’t know any politician that I totally agree with.

        • gene456

          This is not just “any” issue. This is a matter of our survival.

          With the handouts that the Democruds plan to give these vermin, and the way the old media is against us no matter what we say or do, this issue becomes a matter of life and death for us. It is Fantasy-Land to believe that these illegals suddenly made legal are going to support us. Ryan is just playing right into the Democruds’ hands.

          • Feliciene

            Doing nothing is not working either because something has to be done as the illegals keep coming in. I have to give credit to Ryan & Rubio who are least trying to do something about it. As of now, we lost most of the Latino votes.

          • Guest


            Fcuk the La-teen-no vote. If we bring in all those illegals and make them legal, there is NO WAY they are ever going to vote for us anyway. This is something those boneheads Rubio and Ryan fail to comprehend.

          • Feliciene

            Whites will be a minority pretty soon if not already. We need more Latinos &, of course, the far right staying home instead of voting didn’t help matters either. If we don’t unite, dems will win again.

  • ScottyGunn

      I’m afraid so. And the Dean of that infamous school is headed by Professor John McCain.

  • E. O’Neal

    If Ryan is working behind the scenes on a stealth amnesty bill, he has no future at all in national Republican politics.

  • no amnesty

    NO AMNESTY! We have already given amnesty to millions of illegals…where does it stop? Hey worthless Congress, here is an idea…CLOSE THE BORDER! How can you work a deal on amnesty when the border is still open? You will give amnesty to 11 million illegals, then in three years have to give amnesty to 20 million more. REAL AMERICAN TAX PAYING CITIZENS, want the border CLOSED! You worthless politicians are killing AMERICA!

    There you have it.Mainstream conservatives. Sooo the large majority of conservatives are not mainstream according to this blah blah blah.
    Methinks they have confused conservatives w/ republicans. Deliberately.
    Conservatives and republicans are not necessarily synonymous. It quite true most cons votes the R ticket most of the time because the large majority of dem pols are are even worse.
    By it’s very nature, if one is a conservative, one wants the government to get out of their health care decisions.
    This piece is part of the MSM effort to keep Ryan in the forefront of campaign for the R nom for prez.It may work w/ republicans, but not “mainstreet conservatives”
    Um, MSM = mainstream media.. Mainstream Media = hard left propaganda machine.

  • DaveHolden

    Ask Ryan if he would support a RETURN of the Palestinians to their homes in Palestine (now called “Israel” in some parts.) He would oppose that. Yet he supports an outright invasion of foreigners here. What does that say?

    • luckystrike57

      Ryan is a Hypocrite.

    • Mike Latoris

      It says he is a globalist, zionist shill. There is a reason RINO infiltrators like Ryan run in Liberaltarded states like Wisconsin. He can get liberals to vote for him on a Republican ticket.

    • Mike Latoris

      Actually, there is a silver lining – Romney / Ryan would have put the conservative base back to blissful sleep while they set upon furthering the globalist agenda of Socialized medicine (Romenycare predates Obamacare), working on ful blown amnesty, and an “assault” weapons ban, something Romney supported fully.

      These RINOs aren’t conservatives and they are antipodal to the US Constitution. Yes, we suffer under Obama, but the sleeping neo-rino-cons in this country need to emerge from the slumber, feel the pain, and reconnect with the founding principles of these United States.

    Can anyone tell me the benefit of multiculturalism?

    With a major shift in the hispanic population within the U.S. how do you think things will play out?

    What happens to a so called democracy when everyone in the country is different and have opposing views?

    Doesn’t multiculturalism destroy nations and the uniqueness of cultures?

    • DaveHolden

      Hitler embraced multiculturalism….

    • Mike Latoris

      Multiculturalism only succeeds when there is individual liberty and a common bond of admiration and adherence to the US Constitution. The wave of immigration in the early 20th century was comprised of dozens of cultures who all desired to assimilate under the ideal of personal liberty and freedom and succeeded due to a hard work ethic and pride in one’s labor and ability to provide for one’s family, free from the interference of Statism they experienced in their lands of origin.

      “Multiculturalism” and “Liberty” today are misnomers.

  • jabusse

    Maybe Ryan should move to mexico where the budget is balanced on the back of americans. He might learn how they really take advantage of us.

  • Right-wing Realist

    Even the German chancellor Angela Merkel has admitted that multiculturalism within Germany has “utterly failed”.

    -One recent poll showed one-third of Germans believed the country was “overrun by foreigners”.
    -It also found 55% of Germans believed that Arabs are “unpleasant people”, compared with the 44% who held the opinion seven years ago.

    DOES THAT SEEM FAMILIAR? CAN YOU RELATE TO THAT? Multiculturalism will destroy America. It is no coincidence that the massive increase of non-european immigrants into this country has caused America to head off course.

    conservative are really in trouble. we can’t trust any of these people not to be self serving. they sell out at the drop of a hat if they think it will make them popular on msnbc.

  • pearsone

    His 15 minutes of fame are done.Wisconsin do the right thing and primary him out of office before he further damages our republic.The political class like him,boehner,king in ny, and a list of other so called republicans are no better than the BIG GOVERNMENT PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS.

  • mrrealworld

    The GOP needs a new voting block as the RNC/GOP leaves the conservative base-constituency in droves. After 33 years of supporting this party, the GOP finally left me. I’m free!

    • Obamamerica

      The Tea Party needs to make it official and leave the GOP

    • DaveHolden

      Is Cantor a citizen of Israel?
      Does he support the return of the Palestinians to their land?

    • Obamamerica

      He doesn’t care. He’s a progressive

  • Jason

    I don’t get it, Obama is mad the Congress is using it’s power to defund an unpopular ACA. All the while Obama thumbs his nose at the current immigration laws. The guy truly thinks the only valid laws are the ones he agrees with.

    To Jeff Flake and the rest…what makes you think any new law will be enforced any more faithfully than the current law?

    • Obamamerica

      Why has Arizona NOT recalled Flake-out yet??? I understand its hard to get out McCain, but c’mon man!

  • pearsone

    Wake up America -Now who is really upset about this shutdown.The Washington establishment and all their cronies who steal our money.Washington and its career politicians and bureaucrats,and the public sector unions who have a strangle hold on our government .All their perks and pensions is where the money is going.

  • mdavis223

    Ryan stands the chance of being a one-time VP candidate in one term to being booted off the Hill in the next term. That is what will happen if Ryan attempts to push through immigration reform, if not worse.

  • DrDean

    Headline should read:

    “During the Latest Shutdown Debate, Paul Ryan’s Been Working On Amnesty, Gutting The Working/Middle Classes, and Killing His Career.”

    Film at 11…..

    • sickofit5

      sadly, that appears to be true.

  • johnnyjunior

    “If amnesty goes through, America becomes California and no Republican will ever win another national election, I can see why Democrats would want amnesty, but why on earth are Marco Rubio and these endless Bushes supporting it? Even Shemp and Zippo Bush are supporting amnesty for illegals.” (Ann Coulter 3/16/13) Add Paul Ryan to the list.

    • DaveHolden

      Because Israel demands it.

    • Obamamerica

      Because Progressives control both parties. War is coming

  • Christopher Morgan Gilcrest

    Ryan got a taste of the Ruling Elite living style with the failed presidential effort and does not like the hard life of a Tea Party Revolutionary.

    Now over the next week few weeks the Ruling Elite in the Republican Party will join Democrats pass a CR that funds Obama Care, raise the national debt limit with some meaningless savings over 10 years that will be gone by the next CR, pass a flood the USA immigration plan. Happy Holidays, I can hear the audio from Star Wars……..”THE REPUBLIC HAS FALLEN”……..
    And in 2014 when burned out conservatives stay home again the House will fall to the Dem’s, and the Republicans will enjoy a life time of being the happy minority free from the burden of answering to the conservative cause…….

    • Obamamerica

      He was never “Tea Party”. We just thought he was a believer and backed him. He has been exposed like Rubio has

    • DaveHolden

      What makes you associate Tea Party with this vacant-eyed psychopath. If they support a foreign socialist welfare state and WAR on their behalf they are not a tea party candidate.

  • jb80538

    NO AMNESTY! Deport all illegals!

    Remember folks; socialism is NEVER for the socialists. It’s for the serfs, while the socialists make themselves out to be rulers, living in the vast luxury that was paid for with the serf’s labor & money.

    Americans, by and large, have too much wealth and individual liberty to be relegated to serfdom. Therefore, a 3-headed assault has been designed to separate you from what you have. The 3 fronts are:

    -guns – no means to resist.

    -amnesty – flood our culture and job market with hordes that are conditioned to vote for more socialism.

    -economy – QE, de-valuation of the $, tens of trillions of new debt.

    The last point is where this ACA debate is relevant. Any government that controls the means and access to healthcare not only controls your wallet, they control you!!!

  • Humidifier

    Politicians will work for food if necessary. Core values my fanny.

    • My Son My Hero

      well there’s your problem I saw it right off, you assume that a politician has values to begin with that was your mistake, politicians are like reptiles they’ll eat their own to get ahead, come to think of it that’s why we call lawyers snakes right and what are most politicians….. lawyers

    • lisa a

      They will offer some of your food to someone else so they can have the lions share to bribe someone else with (maybe another food stealer).
      Rinse and repeat

  • Karen

    Kohler laid off 750 workers in Paul’s district, but they signed a letter to congress stating they needed comprehensive immigration reform because they are having trouble finding workers.

    • Gas_Passer

      What a bunch of crap!

    • Jonathan Miller

      “Trouble finding workers” What companies say when they wish to wage-smash the workforce so the CEO can get a million dollar bonus,

  • Richard Stanton

    Why is it these fools don’t get that we don’t want OCare or amnesty. Ryan needs to get with the peoples wishes that put him in office and quit trying to be a Democrat.

    • DaveHolden

      Because Israel demands both.

    • Gas_Passer

      Where the hell is Ryan from? Wisconsin? Come on Wisconsin, get rid of this illegal alien lover who is gonna screw your kids from getting a JOB!

    • Gas_Passer

      You’re G-D right! I’m tired of taken this shlt!

  • miss_msry

    No Amnesty! Can that be any clearer?

  • Buddy P

    Working on an amnesty deal?…Working on an amnesty deal! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME. Why the heck hasn’t he been working on a way to keep this government open?

    • Obamamerica

      Paul Ryan is a Progressive

      • Buddy P

        I hope this guy doesn’t insult America by trying to run for President, or any other office, as a Conservative. I have held my nose and voted for some pretty crappy Republicans, but I couldn’t vote for this idiot

  • Bear1000

    Just another typical, backstabbing politician.

  • DaveHolden

    H1b fraud:

  • Gas_Passer

    Is it even worth for a white American to even vote……..for a Republican anymore?

    I see less and less in being represented by our elected Republicans that WE elect.

    • Obamamerica

      This is why we need to push Levin’s idea for a State’s Convention to amend the Constitution for TERM LIMITS

      • Gas_Passer

        Bring it on!

  • Jfd6400

    Mr. Ryan, you sir will be defeated in the next election!! I will do my part to make sure it happens. Good day!!

  • Obamamerica

    Paul Ryan has been exposed as Marco was. RINO PROGRESSIVES

    • DaveHolden

      Why do people assume otherwise? Why do people think con-artists like Herman Cain would be otherwise.

      Go by voting history. Had Obama supporters done so they would have known him, too. Just look at his FISA bill vote in the Senate. All you need to know.

  • DaveHolden

    It would be easy to defeat this Amnesty. You guys don’t know how to play the game. Most of you are brainwashed in to thinking issues are strictly pigeon-holed when they are not. TIE the issue of Amnesty in the US to the Palestinians returning to their land. It is pretty easy to do – if the US is to support an invasion of foreigners then Israel, if they are supposedly “like us”, should at the very least allow the Palestinians to RETURN to their land AND allow comparable immigration of non-Jews. Amnesty would never be spoken of again.

    Look at who supports Amnesty and it is a list of Israeli dual-citizens in our government. People like Schumer and Cantor and Feinstein.

  • Dunnyveg

    Democrat liberals are the reason I am enjoying this government shutdown, and Republican we-are-the-world, open border liberals are the reason I hope this shutdown is permanent. Our own government has declared war on us.

  • knighttemplar01

    Ryan is not listening to the American people, he is owned by his backers and they want cheap ignorant labor, its like having underpaid Chinese workers only they speak Spanish. We have been warning our representatives, to let the obama/ reid and the gang of 8 obamanation die, seal our borders deport the illiterate, illegals here now, period.

  • Buddy P

    Please stop using the term “illegal aliens” That is a Racist term. Instead you must call them by their real name – foreign invaders.

    • lisa a

      Pre Democrat voters.

  • dougtheavenger

    Paul Ryan = POS.

  • n_slash_a

    Maybe he has been quiet because he knew the legacy media would blame the entire government shutdown on him if he was more vocal?

  • dougtheavenger

    Cheap immigrant labor is subsidized by the taxpayer. All the welfare
    they collect (food stamps, EITC, Section 8 housing, etc.) supplements
    their wages and allows the people who employ them to pay less. This is not free market forces. It is indirect subsidy of low wage industry. We should never allow a US business to employ any foreign national for less than a living wage ($14.50/hour).

    • Jonathan Miller

      Good luck with that, you won’t find any jobs in my state that way.

      • dougtheavenger

        If I take your statement as true, then only foreign nationals hold jobs in your state. US citizens would be able to work for $7.25/hour under the law I proposed.

        • Jonathan Miller

          I live in NC, where there are no jobs. Period. And when one is lucky to find one, they do not start at 14.50. You can demand two-tiered minimum wage but demand and wish away and see which comes true first.

  • dredzo

    Ryan needs to leave the amnesty for illegals alone, or he will lose any support from anyone.

    • dougtheavenger

      As far as I am concerned, Ryan is unfit for public office.

    • Buddy P

      lose? Does he have any? Oh ya, dopey me. He has a bunch of libs and foreign invaders behind him

  • LVR

    If they are going to grant “11 million” illegals (FELONS) amnesty, or in other words a pardon for their crimes then every person (Citizen) in this Country who has been convicted of a crime must get the same consideration and pardon. Equal protection clause, right?

    • lisa a

      I wouldn’t hold my breath on that.

      • LVR

        Laws must be applied equally. If they don’t grant pardons to everyone, they can’t grant them anyone.

        • lisa a

          You’re assuming they are going to play by the rules.

          • LVR

            True, but if this passes, I’d bet you’re going to see many people taking their convictions to court requesting pardons under the equal protection clause. I don’t see how it can be denied.

  • dougtheavenger

    Ryan has made it clear that he considers a “labor shortage” to be a bad thing. In other words, high unemployment is good. What a douche.

    • Gas_Passer

      How does Ryan think there’s a labor shortage when MILLIONS and MILLIONS of Americans can’t find a JOB?

  • lestref

    Paul RINO. No amnesty. Period.

  • big_conservative

    The Repukes in the House do Obamnesty, they can count the GOP as good as dead. It may already be dead anyway. But Obamnesty will be the final nail in the coffin.

  • Gas_Passer

    Does Ryan think that helping pass Amnesty for Illegal Aliens is going to help him in a presidential run in 2016. He’s insane if he thinks that’s going to help him win. He won’t be getting my vote if he is the nominee for the Republicans.

    • Loretta Adams

      Yes, because he knows you will vote for him over HIllary…no matter what happens…and he is RIGHT.

  • mcc985

    yes, push hard for that amnesty, Paul! It did wonders for the presidential prospects of Rubio! You should take all the lessons you learned from the 2012 election and be doing the OPPOSITE!

  • mcgirv

    He has Rubioitis. It’s contagious.

  • muthamedia

    With the disaster that is the federal government, this guy is working on amnesty for illegals that will take the country over the cliff.

  • JI

    There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrats and the Republicans on any issue of big importance (such as replacing the native population with an entirely different culture that has proven it will not assimilate).

  • fcalsnoe

    Ryan Rubio Cantor have turned pure evil. Is this the only place people seem to notice it and bring it up.


    Folks! We The People!

    When will you tax paying people wake up and realize that you are being treated like tax paying slaves to a bunch of insane mentally ill tax paid government employees of We The People who have been in a mode of treason for decades?

    We The People’s Constitution does not authorize a tax paid health insurance program that is being rammed down your throat whether you like it or not! Something like this must go through the amendment procedure which is being deliberately treasonously ignored by We The People’s evil and corrupt tax paid government employees!

    We The People…We Need To Talk!

  • Mark Woodworth, Ph.D.

    If the Rs allow illegal immigrants to become legal, in any way shape or form, the party is dead. A new party will emerge. The RINO party will become irrelevant.


    And on the subject of amnesty. IT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE IN 1986 PEOPLE!

    Wake up! What is wrong with you people? You people should be kicking these tax paid treasonous freaks of nature out of We The People’s Washington D.C. job site ASAP! They all need to be placed into hospitals for the mentally insane! They are destroying your home and you do nothing about it!

    We The People…We Need To Talk!

  • fb0252

    Ryan is working on a bill to stop legal immigration.

    • SophiaWeisheit

      Yep, all you have to do is legalize all the fence jumpers and there won’t be any more illegal aliens. Problem solved! What a genius !

  • SUSANM621


    • NUTN2SAY

      America has many We The People who are out of work. What do corrupt and treasonous tax paid elected government employees do? They import illegal foreigners from across the southern border to America so as to give those tax paying unemployed We The People unfair job search competition! And for a second time these traitors want to turn these imported illegal foreigners into U.S. citizens! This is your tax dollar at work! This is treason!

  • FaceliftMask

    The same Paul Ryan that voted to exempt himself from insider trading laws too? I’m so shocked… NOT.

  • leighrow

    So how much is this big government tool going to personally make from the deal!? What a loser!

  • Julia Thompson

    Work on any deal you want Ryan…you are slitting your own throat. I for one will not even vote for you as dog catcher….

    • leighrow

      Paul Ryan doesn’t care…he is a big government tool. The only job he ever had was in government. He will go to work for a big Lobbyist soon if he doesn’t run for president. Paul Ryan is the epitome of what we Don’t need in Washington!

    • Loretta Adams

      Yes, you will. When push comes to shove, and you have to choose between Hillary and someone like him, they KNOW you will vote for them….even if it means you voting for someone who cannibalizes their own principles. God Bless.

      • Julia Thompson

        Sorry, Loretta, you are wrong. I have quit voting for RINOs….I no longer sacrifice MY principles and have stopped voting for them for sometime now. I will skip the primaries and votes rather than do something that is against everything I believe.

  • leighrow

    These people will be added to the Obamacare rolls which will drastically affect the quality of healthcare that law abiding citizens receive. I detest this ugly man!

    • Ron Mexico

      I agree with you 100%. Two weeks ago we found out that in Los Angeles alone it will cost tax payers $650 million to provide illegals with welfare and free health care. This does not include education or incarceration. We have become a third world dumping ground. Bye, bye America!

      • leighrow

        It is funny how politicians like Paul Ryan ignores this glaring fact…I guess Paul Ryan is getting paid well by the globalists to sell out the USA!

  • omnibus

    When did Paul Ryan become a Democrat?

  • SophiaWeisheit

    Another flash-in-the-pan republican who actually shows his true RINO colors.

  • Reader11722

    RINOs who love illegals (like Ryan and Cruz), yet another violation of our rights. The gov’t constantly violates our rights.

    They violate the 1st Amendment by caging protesters and banning books like “America Deceived II”.

    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by allowing TSA to grope you.

    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars.

    Impeach Obama, support Rand Paul.

    Last link of “America Deceived II” before it is completely banned:

  • hun555

    Hey…what happened…He used to be your Republican hero?…next is Cruz..

  • mike077

    Scandal in waiting? Is that why he is quiet? A national campaign brings a lot of pressure and temptations.

  • Pax Romana

    I’ve voted Republican all my life. If the Republican Party votes for legalizing illegals, then I am finished with them and will never vote Republican again. And I’m not the only one saying that. Many of my friends and relatives are saying the exact same thing. These corrupt ‘Big Business in their Pockets’ Republican Leaders are destroying America and the Republican Party all at the same time. If they’re so hell bent on destroying America and the Party, then to hell with it!

    • hun555

      what happened in 1986…did not get the memo?..or you just a younger person.

  • Jesse4

    He’s probably trying to keep all that shutdown stink off of himself for the next election. Cruz and some of the others will be associated with the shutdown debacle, while Ryan isn’t. Assuming voters take revenge for the shutdown/CR crisis like the polls suggest, he might end up being the most electable Republican running after the others self immolate in protest of Obamacare.
