Paul Ryan Throws in the Towel on Entitlement Reform

Paul Ryan says Trump's slur against African countries is 'unfortunate, unhelpful'

Speaker Paul Ryan calls Pres. Trump's immigrant remarks 'unfortunate' and 'unhelpful'

If not, they will need votes from Democrats, who are insisting the bill includes a solution to the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "I think people are attaching them in their minds as far as leverage is concerned, but they won't be technically attached as far as legislation is concerned".

A day after reports President Trump used an insulting term to describe Haiti and African countries - the Speaker of the House offers his response in Milwaukee.

Congressional negotiators have spent weeks battling over top lines for military and domestic spending, with Republicans and Democrats alike warning that failure to strike a deal would harm United States military readiness and capability.

Bipartisan negotiations hit a snag after President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected an agreement reached by a group of six senators. And Ryan said he immediately thought about oppression his family had faced. "I thought about my own family". "And I just think it's important that we celebrate that".

Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, echoed that sentiment, saying he wants a "bipartisan consensus" on entitlement reform.

"The Irish were really looked down upon back in those days".

Ryan said Congress will eventually have to address making changes to the social safety net, arguing the current structure is fiscally unsustainable.
