The Speaker said more Americans will be without insurance because it's what they want, not because the GOP health care plan is bad.
Republicans in Congress – emboldened by the bully in the White House – are no longer trying to disguise how they feel toward lower and middle-income Americans.
House Oversight Democrats tore through Speaker Paul Ryan's bogus defense that Trump should get a free pass on obstructing justice because he's new at this by producing the evidence that the President knew exactly what he was doing.
Republicans in the House of Representatives are about to dismantle financial reforms enacted by President Obama after the Great Recession.
A new Quinnipiac University poll revealed that passing a bill that raised the cost of health care and took away coverage from millions has made Speaker Paul Ryan the most disliked leader in Congress.
Republican House leadership is worried now about what other leaks could come next.
After the leak of a taped conversation with Kevin McCarthy telling Paul Ryan and others that he thought Putin was paying Trump and Republican lawmaker Dana Rohrabacher, House leadership is “agitated."
In 2012, the FBI warned Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) that Russian spies were trying to recruit him. This new report takes aim at the "just joking" defense made by Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy in regards to the explosive report that in June of 2016 they were discussing Putin paying Donald Trump.
Imagine if House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA ) told Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and his colleagues last year that he thought Russian President Vladimir Putin paid Republican Donald Trump.
Because it was just reported that this happened on June 15, 2016. Spokespeople for the two Republican leaders flatly denied this, until confronted with the fact that there is a recording. Now they claim it was a joke.
Last summer, referencing Hillary Clinton, Ryan said: "Individuals who are 'extremely careless' with classified information should be denied further access to such information."
As Paul Ryan was leaving Success Academy charter school in Harlem Tuesday afternoon, he got loudly and angrily booed and people chanted, “Healthcare for all not just Paul!”
There were also "F*ck you!" chants, and there were a lot of them.
Paul Ryan was greeted by protesters shouting "Shame!" and carrying signs reading, among other things, "Healthcare is a human right!"
While Republicans are banking on their repeal efforts to excite the base of their party, it's becoming clear that they are in over their heads.
"AHCA was posted online a month ago" and "scored by CBO -- twice." She lies. The version voted on didn't exist a month ago and was never scored.
GOP Congressman Kevin McCarthy says Republicans do, in fact, have enough votes to advance the legislation.
As the GOP-controlled government continues to wage war on middle-class Americans, this number will likely get worse.
If this is the GOP's secret weapon in keeping control of the hotly contested seat, then they're in big trouble.
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) is much less popular than other new Speakers. Only 29% approve of Paul Ryan, while 54% disapprove of the job he is doing according to a new Pew Research poll.
With Trump in charge of America's nuclear arsenal – like a toddler playing with a loaded firearm – Congressional oversight is a necessity.
Democrats are taking this investigation seriously, while Republicans are bending over backward to protect the GOP president.
With members of Congress like Maxine Waters calling them out, Trump and the White House will not get away with lying about or diverting attention from their clear ties to Russia.
