You Won’t Believe What Paul Ryan Just Did

Paul Ryan has a message to tardy lawmakers: get to work.

According to The Hill:

“Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) means business when it comes to being on time for House votes.

Tardiness has long been a largely unenforced problem when it comes to voting. Last week, Ryan chastised colleagues for being late, saying that “voting within the allotted time would help with the maintenance of the institution.”

He abruptly ordered Wednesday’s vote be closed after the allotted 15 minutes on legislation to prevent the Obama administration from lifting sanctions on Iranian entities unless it certifies they aren’t involved with terrorism or the country’s ballistic missile program.

As a result, more than 130 lawmakers missed the vote, which was gaveled down when the tally hit 191-106, and the vote was vacated.

Typically, the first votes of a series take closer to 30 minutes than the official 15 minutes. Lawmakers typically take longer than the allotted time to break from meetings or walk over to the Capitol from their offices across the street.”

  1. Once you sell or give away your integrity, it is rarely regained.. Mr. Ryan has no support. We simply hope the damage is not too severe, before he can be replaced..

    • I can speak for anyone but myself, but for my money, Ryan pretty much proved what he really is right out of the box: Another John Boehner.

  2. Trump need to do whatever is nessarey to get all the votes! Have you ever heard of Congress being on time for anything?

  3. He needs to be replaced soon! He is showing his true colors! Sometime you would think he backs the president! Back stabber!!!!

  4. so by closing the voting of republicans only lets obama’s democRATS get their votes counted over ours, sounds like he’s more in bed with the enemy than even boring Boehner.
