Paul Ryan, SOB (Son of Boehner)
If you are a film lover like I am, you are familiar with the “son of” films. Son of Kong (1933), Son of Frankenstein (1939), Son of Dracula (1943), and Son of Dr. Jekyll (1951) come to mind. There was also Son of Flubber (1963), but that’s a different genre. They were cheap knockoffs of the originals that hoped to reap the financial rewards that their originals made. The storylines were thin and predictable, just like today’s GOP political flubbing.
The GOP is in control of everything and refuses to do what’s necessary to save the Republic. Trump is stymied by an incalcitrant political machine whose gears move only to give the impression of motion when the Democrats are in control.
Dr. Gary North has dubbed Paul Ryan “Son of Boehner,” and for good reason:
On November 6, 2010, I published an article predicting the Republican Party’s predictable capitulation to ObamaCare.
It happened this week. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan oversaw the burial of House Republicans’ opposition. His toothless and feckless compromise bill — ObamaCare Lite — was DOA.
Ryan used to parade his fondness for the economics of Ayn Rand, but when push came to shove, he made a Greenspan career move — another official Ayn Rand fan before he got into power. Ryan wimped out. He played ball in a rigged game. He went with the flow . . . over the falls.
For over six years, the Republicans submitted dozens of doomed bills to repeal ObamaCare. Citing Macbeth, it was all sound and fury, signifying nothing . . . nothing but the same old surrender to the Democrats’ welfare state. They never repeal anything that the Democrats ram down their throats. Once there is a new voting bloc getting fat on Uncle Sugar, the Republicans refuse to repeal the boondoggle.
I know there are true believers out there who assure us: “This time it will be different. This time if we elect a true Republican, he will roll back the welfare state.”
Nope. Sorry. Nothing will change. It’s always this: “Replace. Don’t repeal.”
I say: “Repeal.” If something is morally evil — and the welfare state is evil — repeal it.
If the Democrats ever enact a law setting up a program of tax-funded prostitution, Republicans in Congress will submit a bill modifying the law. It will set up tax credits that help to offset the financial burden of funding weekly tricks for millions of men who otherwise could not afford them.
Here is what I wrote.
