Ryan wants strong GOP votes on spending and tax deals

Congressional leaders have agreed to the core components of a nearly $2-trillion year-end tax and spending deal but still have to figure out how to structure it so it can pass the House with strong Republican votes, according to sources familiar with the talks.

The votes will be the first test of newly elected Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) leadership and he is proceeding carefully to make sure he has as many GOP votes as possible for the spending and tax packages. They are expected to move separately in the lower chamber.

The omnibus spending bill is $1.1 trillion and the tax package earlier this month was estimated in the range of $600 to $800 billion.

    I started worrying about Paul Ryan when I seen the democrats approved him as speaker that in itself was troublesome.

  • bertroga says:

    The opposition party should go through the bho budget and eliminate the things they do not like. We have to stop the USA from going bankrupt, but the politicos keep spending like we had the money. The RNC is not doing it’s job, to stop the downfall of the USA.

    He is a jerk from my home state of Wisconsin. Between him and Scott walker screwed Wisconsin over.

  • Patrick Brown says:

    I love it. Collect $600 billion, spend $1.1 trillion, put us $500 billion deeper in debt. Is this how the GOP manages the store. When are we going to turn the corner, cut the crap (er I mean pork) and collect $1.1 trillion while spending $600 billion.

    Even Keynes would cringe at these guys. Even Keynes would raise the white flag and tell these guys enough, you’ve got to pay the bills some day!!!!! You just can’t keep spending your way to oblivion!

      Both parties are the parties of tax and spend! We
      need to fire every representative and senator and start over!

    Now we know why he feathered his nest by saying he couldn’t be fired if he took the job and it only emphasizes why he and Romney LOST the election. These people just don’t learn. Leave town Mr. Ryan. Cut out the welfare that goes to the Congress, the freebies, vacations, and all the other junk you take from the tax payers and label it govt.

    Like or not this is how government works. There are no winners and should not be, This isn’t a game, this is business. No one gets everything they want. If people don’t complain there is something wrong with the spending bill.

  • Gnowark says:

    I’m glad that they have “agreed to core components” so I’m sure we’ll know the details as soon “still have to figure out how to structure it.” I guess the new Paul Boehner-Ryan will win the 2016 Obamao Transparency Award. We are just superfluous to deciding how our money is wasted.

      Umm..they’ll have to pass it so they can read it.

    This clown has turned into the biggest phony like his predecessor Boehner. One RINO after another.
