WATCH: Paul Ryan says he will serve as House Speaker… as long as his conditions are met.

Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) held a press conference, announcing that he will serve as speaker, as long as it will unify the party.

“We need to move from an opposition party to a proposition party,” Ryan stated. “If I can truly be a unifying figure, then I will gladly serve. If my colleagues entrust me with being the speaker, then I want us to be the solution.”

“I cannot and will not give up my family time,” Ryan exclaimed. “This is a job where you are expected to be on the road about a hundred days a year; our kids are 10, 12 and 13, and I’m not going to do that.”

This resulted in Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) dropping out of the race and endorsing Ryan.

Congressman Daniel Webster (R-FL), who was endorsed by the The House Freedom Caucus, is remaining in the race.

“I’m running for speaker to transform a broken Congress based on the power of a few into a principle-based, member-driven Congress,” Webster released in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to share my vision of pushing down the pyramid of power and spreading out the base to allow each member to be successful.”

The Republican establishment has been pressuring Ryan to jump into the race for the speakership, and it appears that he has finally caved.

Congress passed the American Health Care Act, a health care plan intended to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

screen-shot-2017-05-04-at-8-57-26-pmThe bill passed by a 217-213 vote. All House Democrats opposed the replacement healthcare bill.

The truth, which has not been widely reported, is that Obamacare was failing on its own. Individual states were finding loopholes to opt out and insurance companies were denying and dropping coverage all across the nation, as many individuals and businesses simply could not afford the premiums.

Not only could you not keep your own doctor under Obamacare, the inappropriately named “Affordable Health Care Act,” was anything but affordable for many Americans.

Trump has promised that his new health care plan would lower premiums and encourage employers, unburdened with high healthcare costs for their employees, to begin hiring again.

Trump congratulated and thanked House Speaker Paul Ryan and praised House Republicans for working together to pass the bill.

“What we have is something very, very incredibly well-crafted,” Trump said.

Alarmist Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, condemned the passage of Trump’s healthcare bill.

“Make no mistake, many people will die as a result of this bill,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, said.

Sen. Ted Cruz Attacks Obama in NH

(Reuters) – Senator Ted Cruz, the conservative Texas Republican considering a run for the presidency, lashed out at President Barack Obama during a visit to New Hampshire on Sunday, saying his administration had repeatedly trampled on the Constitution.

Cruz, who is exploring a run for the White House in 2016, struck a defiantly aggressive tone during a speech in the first state to hold a presidential primary election, slamming Obama on his handling of immigration, negotiations with Iran and his signature health care reforms.The freshman senator from Texas was one of four Republican presidential hopefuls who paid weekend visits to New Hampshire, which has tended to favor moderates in recent years. The flurry of activity marks the opening salvo in a primary race that still lacks a clear front-runner.

“We’ve got to get back to defending our Constitutional liberties,” Cruz said in a luncheon speech in Barrington, about 30 miles northeast of Manchester. “We’ve never seen a federal government come after the Bill of Rights like this administration.”

Cruz coyly resisted calls from an audience eager for him to announce his candidacy, including the pleas of one supporter who opened his wallet and offered a blank check to the freshman Senator from Texas.

Instead Cruz sketched the outlines of a fledgling platform, calling for a flat tax so that every American can “fill out his or her taxes on a postcard.”

He railed against limits on campaign spending, saying it would be better to require full disclosure than “to muzzle individual citizens from speaking out.”

“He’s strong, he’s honest and he goes by the book,” said Bob Raas, 70, a retired truck driver from Barrington, as he pulled a miniature copy of the Constitution from his shirt pocket.

Cruz was joined in the Granite State this weekend by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, former Texas Governor Rick Perry and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

In New Hampshire, voters still expect to shake hands and ask questions of candidates in person before they make their selections.

Cruz earlier this week received a cool reception from former New Hampshire GOP Chairman Fergus Cullen, who invited Jeb Bush to a gathering at his home but declined to invite Cruz, saying the Texas Senator represents everything that is wrong with the Republican Party in Washington.

The snub did little to dampen the enthusiasm of the bustling crowd of supporters who turned up to see Cruz.

“I would have driven a thousand miles to hear him,” said Gary DiPiero, a 47-year old landscaper who came from neighboring Massachusetts to hear the senator speak. “I’ve had it with the Bushes.”
