The GOPe DC apparatchik (writ large) are all-in with their demands to support Representative Paul Ryan as the next Speaker of the House (SoH).
Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan appeared on Fox News Sunday to outline what the problems are, and it has less to do with Paul Ryan “the Speaker” – and more to do with removing the GOPe stranglehold; ie. the GOPe demand on the apparatus of power.
Jim Jordan articulates the problem. The essence of the problem is what the media and GOPe want to hide.
Within those rules Jordan is describing you find out why so many of the House of Representatives are frustrated with a UniParty leadership team that demands compliance to a regime interest that remains antithetical to the desires of the electorate who sent them there.
The GOPe leadership (Boehner, McCarthy, McConnell, Cornyn) are beholden to Wall Street, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and K-Street, they refuse to be beholden to the will of the electorate.
This UniParty alliance where Progressive Republicans and Progressive Democrats are sympatico with a Progressive White House is the root cause of the problem. See the Trade Authority Usurpation as one easily identifiable example; see the lack of a federal budget for fiscal year 2016 as yet another.
Finally, after years of frustration, and especially in the face of “the-Senate-is-blocking-us-excuse” being removed (because Republicans took control of the Senate), the internal result was a coalition who said “enough”, this is ridiculous.
It makes no sense, for them or for us, to replace Speaker Boehner with yet another GOPe progressive speaker who is intent on delivering/maintaining the same progressive Big-Government constructs.
