A couple weeks ago, the Omnibus was passed by congress for which (new to the position) Speaker Paul Ryan has received a ton of grief.
Many are calling for him being challenged in the next election by a more conservative candidate.
The fury of resentment at the passage of this bill has been directed at him and others.
We sent a Republican Congress to stop this stuff.
We ousted Boehner to stop this stuff.
A friend of mine hosts a radio show (The Drift) on our local conservative station WAAM.
They have an online presence and I highly recommend you check them out.
I co-hosted a show with him last summer in which I helped interview Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) concerning the TPP, something brought to my attention by "Ducky's Here".
So when Gary Wellings (my friend) went on a rant to fire all the Republicans who voted for the Omnibus, I called in and asked him to hold off until he heard from Walberg, etc.
This is that section of his broadcast where he responds to my request by cutting me off the air.
I was rather upset at the time by how he responded.
The next Monday morning, Bill Bennett commented on Paul Ryan and said that he would have him on to explain what happened. Ryan's explanation did not satisfy a lot of people.
So yesterday, I was listening to The Drift, because, as I wrote on Facebook:
"Sometimes, someone will cut you off in a conversation and not let you finish your point.
You have a choice.
Write them off, or remember that you are friends.
I suggest the latter. It can be very rewarding.
And you've kept a friend."
As I was saying, I was listening to The Drift and this is what I heard.
Tim Walberg gives a very clear (much more than Ryan did) explanation of his vote for the Omnibus.
The 22 minute mark was very gratifying to me.
After that point Walberg went on to explain a lot more about what is going on in Congress with current issues.
I hope this helped you understand the position of the many ethical Republican congresscritters (that seemed to cave) the way it helped me.
