Ryan is a Successful Speaker

New Speaker Paul Ryan had a very successful wind up t0 2015.

In Speaker Boehner’s last major action—the 2 year budget outline—only 79 Republicans voted for the deal–far short of a majority of the republican caucus. In the final actual appropriations bill 150 Republicans supported the legislation. On the tax extenders bill 241 Republicans voted for the bill. In short, Ryan has the respect and confidence of many more members of his caucus than did Boehner.

Some are skeptical that Ryan will be a successful Speaker.  I am not. While I may disagree with him on substance, his temperament, style, and intellect are all world class. In a pinch maybe a deadlocked Republican convention will nominate him for president!
