Paul Ryan Kisses Koch Ass
Republican House speaker, Paul Ryan, doesn't get it. They should be thanking him, not the other way around. Oh, wait a second. He gets his reward.
Ryan offered up a brief video thanking America's billionaires network for making tax reform for billionaires a reality.
"Your network has been instrumental for allowing us to reach so many milestones that have long been talked about, but until this year, have not been achieved," Ryan said in a three-minute video message aired to hundreds of Republican mega-donors attending a three-day meeting in California.
"And because of your help, we have been able to take the ball and run with it," he said.
Ryan, the House Speaker, rattled off policy priorities for 2018 that align with the influential Koch network's goals, including deregulation and an overhaul of the criminal-justice system.
