DICKERSON: He talked about a bold vision. And when he offered bold visions in his budget years, it was often a big, big target for democrats. I mean isn’t that a recipe — if he’s going to offer bold vision — for more fighting over ideology?
On the other hand, to the extent he wants to sit down work collaboratively to solve problems, one of those is comprehensive immigration reform and he’s already taken that off the table because they don’t trust the president. I’m not sure what that has to do with the House of Representatives passing substantive, constructive legislation that the — that the chamber of commerce supports and labor supports and a broad spectrum of the country supports.
Hoyer was reacting to Ryan’s claim that he will not allow a vote on immigration reform because President Obama is “untrustworthy.”
House Democrats are going to sit around and let Ryan pile up lie filled excuses as for why he refuses to do his job and allow votes on bills that a majority of Americans support.
Ryan is also on notice that his economic agenda is dead on arrival. Ryan is not going to be able to use his position to push gutting Social Security and Medicare. Ryan’s “bold vision” for the House is about to run into a brick wall if he insists on pushing his unpopular agenda.
The message is clear. Ryan is going to be in for a bumpy ride if he refuses to work with Democrats.
