  • Ryan breaks record for shutting down floor debate.

    He took over the speakership promising a more open process than his predecessor, but ends up being the worst ever.

    Paul Ryan vowed an end to the much-despised top-down approach of his predecessor when he took the speaker’s gavel in 2015, promising a House that’s “more open, more inclusive, more deliberative, more participatory.”

    “We're not going to bottle up the process so much and predetermine the outcome of everything around here,” he said in his first news conference as speaker.

    But two years later, the House Rules Committee, which is controlled by the speaker, just set a record for the most closed rules in a session — barring lawmakers for the 49th time from offering amendments on a bill.

    Ryan has yet to allow a single piece of legislation to be governed by an open rule, which allows members to propose changes on the floor.

    and...what did anyone really expect from this chicken$#!+ sycophant rubberstamp?
    "We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties due to reality fluctuations. The elves are working tirelessly to patch the correct version of reality. Activities here have been temporarily disabled since the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and reason may be incomprehensible during this indeterminate period of instability. Normal service will be restored once we are certain as to what 'normal' is."

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting ', what a ride!'
