Oct. 21, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) demands that he will only run for House Speaker if he is anointed without opposition before a single vote is cast:
“It is almost obscene that in response to demands that the power of the Speaker be limited, that Paul Ryan is demanding a scepter, crown and throne to take the job. Talk about a guy who just doesn’t get what’s wrong in Washington, D.C.”
