Paul Ryan betrayed conservatives

A poll of likely Republican voters shows House Speaker Paul Ryan well below 50 percent in his race to maintain his seat in Wisconsin’s first Congressional district.

What Does It Cost To Buy A Paul Ryan Vote?

Richard Lawless, Daily Caller Opinion

A few months ago, Secretary Lew met with Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan. After that meeting, Speaker Ryan abandoned his position on a Republican Puerto Rico solution and began publicly supporting the administration’s position. A solution that violated every core Conservative and Republican principal his party stood for.

Jack Kemp's Lesson For Paul Ryan

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

It is now 13 days since Donald Trump clinched his status as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Which is to say, Speaker Ryan, a man who styles himself as Jack Kemp’s disciple, has another six days to match Kemp’s record of endorsing a man with whom Kemp vigorously disagreed, but had the Republican nomination sewn-up. Kemp went from saying Bush’s election would mean “the end of the Reagan agenda” to campaigning at his side.

Trump: ‘I’m Not Ready To Support Ryan’s Agenda’

Kerry Picket, The Daily Caller

“I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda. Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!” Trump said in a statement.

The Ryan Fantasy

Daniel Larison, The American Conservative

Even if Ryan is looking ahead to the next election, I’m skeptical that he would be the one that the GOP gets behind. No one has secured the nomination of either major party running from the House in well over a century, and I doubt Ryan will be the one to change that. 

Trump’s Biggest Donors – Paul Ryan & Mitch McConnell

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

The passage of the Obama - Ryan - McConnell omnibus killed whatever hope Jeb Bush and the other establishment candidates might have had to regain some momentum going into the Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina contests. The only remaining question for conservatives and Republicans to answer is whether they choose the incendiary and unpredictable commentary of Mr. Trump or the proven limited government constitutional conservatism of Senator Cruz to represent them in the contest against Hillary Clinton in November.
