Paul Ryan’s Cave Doesn’t Get House Out of Swamp

‘Ryan Was Either Feckless or Complicit in Attempted Dismantling of House Ethics Rules’

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements about U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan presiding over the attempted gutting of House ethics rules. Late Monday morning, Republicans hastily announced the planned floor vote for today will be delayed, for now.

“This was Paul Ryan’s failure. He was either feckless or he was complicit in the attempted dismantling of the House ethics rules. The sacred cow of politics has shown he is nothing but a paper tiger.

“House Republicans have learned the lesson Donald Trump learned about Paul Ryan: You can say and do whatever you want, and Paul Ryan will always cave if it means holding onto his own personal power.”
