House of Representatives to Vote On Speaker of the House
Ending weeks of uncertainty over who could win enough support in the GOP to succeed Speaker of the House John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the House Republican conference on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, voted to elevate U.S. Representative of Wisconsin Paul Ryan (R) to Speaker of the House. To become the GOP's Speaker-designate, which only took a majority of the 247 members of the House of Representatives Ryan won enough support. U.S. Representative of Florida Daniel Webster (R), who was supported by conservatives as a better choice to help ensure all members have an equal voice as the House of Representatives considers legislation, received 43 votes to Ryan's 200 votes.
Representative Paul Ryan on Thursday, October 29, 2015, will need the support of a majority of all House of Representatives members participating in the election of the nation's 54th, Speaker of the House or 218 if all members vote. To defeat the establishment Republican Ryan, 30 Republicans are needed to vote against him.
Ryan cannot be trusted because he has taken many anti-conservative positions. For example, Speaker-In- Waiting Paul Ryan abandoned his opposition to the big government spending Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (H.R. 1314). Representative Paul Ryan told Mark Levin on his radio show on July 11, 2012, that he had the votes to repeal 85 of Obamacare and then did nothing (Listen to Ryan explain it: Levin: Paul Ryan Told Me We Could Repeal 85% of Obamacare, Then He Did Nothing ) Ryan has voted for the $700 billion dollar Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) subsidy and bailout, the GM-Chrysler bailout, the confiscatory taxes on chief executive office (CEO) bonuses, No Child Left Behind, the $192 billion stimulus bill in 2009, the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008, the expansion of the Medicare prescription drug program in 2003, and gun control in 2014. Furthermore, to promote U.S. Senator of Florida Marco Rubio's amnesty for illegal aliens agenda through the House of Representatives, a newly-aired PBS documentary shows how Paul Ryan and Mick Mulvaney labored with U.S. Representative of Illinois Luis Gutierrez (D).

What Can You Do?
Urge your representative to NOT SUPPORT U.S. Representative of Wisconsin Paul Ryan (R) to become the next Speaker of the House of Representatives. A Speaker that will restore the House of Representatives to its proper Constitutional role is what is needed, and Ryan fails on all accounts. Specifically, target Republican representatives because only 30 Republican votes are needed to defeat the establishment Republican Ryan.
