The Republican Leadership is either an enabler or is a part of the Progressive movement. I believe the latter. The Republican Leadership is as responsible for the progress of the progressives as is the Marxist movement in the Democratic Party. All the while the Republican Leadership has assisted the Marxist/Progressives, they have tried to convince us they were fiscally responsible and believed in conservative principles.
The European Union has been assisting Greece for years because Greece was irresponsible in handling their finances. Many who had loaned Greece money in good faith have had to suffer losses as part of the “restructuring” processes. Of course Greece promised they would become more fiscally responsible. They have not and their crisis just keeps getting worse and worse.
Puerto Rico has been as fiscally irresponsible as Greece. Now the United States Congress, under the leadership of the Republicans and Ryan, are being as naïve and irresponsible as the EU has been with Greece.
It is this type of irresponsible action spearheaded by the Republican Leadership that has enabled a candidate as Progressive as either of the candidates for the Democrats to become the Republican presumptive nominee. It is because of people like Ryan, Boehner, McConnell, McCain, McCarthy, and the others who made promises they had no intention of keeping that has brought about the tremendous unrest we have in the nation today.
First Puerto Rico, then Illinois, then California, then Chicago, and on and on irresponsible entities will be enabled. Like Greece, the irresponsible Progressives in charge of these governments will continue to spend recklessly by overtaxing and buying votes with handouts. That is the world of the Progressive, which includes the Republican presumptive nominee and the Republican Leadership.
Here is the story:
Speaker Paul Ryan has reached a tentative deal with the Treasury Department on a rescue package to ease Puerto Rico's debt crisis, according to House Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R- Utah), who has been leading negotiations.
“We are moving forward — there is a deal,” the Utah Republican said Wednesday afternoon, adding that legislative text of the deal would be released later on Wednesday.
The tentative agreement represents a breakthrough on an issue that has been stuck in congressional limbo for months. Ryan (R-Wis.) said last year that helping Puerto Rico restructure its multi-billion-dollar debt would be a top priority for the first quarter of 2016. But conservatives balked at Bishop’s initial proposal, following a series of ads that labeled the measure a “bailout.” Democrats also refused to support that earlier deal because of a minimum wage decrease included in the measure.
