It would seem that the wolf is shedding its sheepish skin as Ryan puts forth conditions (ultimatums?) if he's going to accept the Speakership.  But these conditions that changes House standards seem to be aimed exclusively at the House Freedom Caucus, the conservative group in the HoR that have been creditted (or blaimed) for John Boehner's early retirement from Congress altogether.  Imo, his retirement didn't come early enough.

So, Rep. Paul Ryan said that he'd run for the Speakership - IF the entire GOP conference unites behind him.  He wants the "entire" conference to blindly follow his lead - w/ out challenge?  It sounds just like the way Barack Obama has been running things for the past six-plus years so far.  Is Ryan demanding OBEDIENCE from the GOP?  Isn't that exactly what the GOP members,.including those in the Senate, mind you... have given Obama, Pelosi and Reid since 2011?

The reason, and the very intentions behind the Framers having established three co-equal Branches of the federal government was so that no one person, or entity, would have full control; or autonomy.  And safeguards were/are included w/ the inclusion of Article V of the US Constitution, and the ratification of the 1st, 2nd, and 10th Amendments - which were added so that the sovereign States, and their residents, had the LEGAL tools to protect and defend themselves from any enemies, or adversaries, of the Constitution - foreign or even domestic.  And, the way I see it, our domestic adversaries have given uncontested and unconditional entry to illegal aliens coming from nations and/or regions that have shown to be hostile to America to say  the least.  

Have we not surrendered enough already?  Is not dissension a form of expression and protest - which is very much protected by the Constitution?  I am weary of those that say we must walk in lockstep w/ each other - regardless of party affiliation. Imo, Ryan is demanding utopian House.  He seems to want things to be easy to do.  If it's too hard for him to handle, then he should stay out. If Rep. Paul Ryan actually believes that by getting the entire House behind him will appease the American people, and make them obediently silent when the House continues to cave in to the democrats' every demand (and they will), then Ryan is as delusional as the rest of his squishy/moderate GOP colleagues.  And that would make him no different than Boehner or McConnell. Big surprise.  

What good is it to change one's mask if they all share the same soiled underwear?

“I don’t think anybody would be above what we think are the minimum standards necessary for speaker,”, said Rep. John Fleming, one of the founders of The Freedom Caucus.
  Walking in lockstep is exactly what I am completely FED UP with!

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
