Right now, the smart money for the next speaker of the House is Kevin McCarthy who is Paul Ryan light. If he gets the job, we can all say goodbye to the Trump agenda. Steve Scalise would have been a better choice but he has already said that he will not run against McCarthy, so that’s out. But there is a rumbling coming out of Washington that a Newt Gingrich type candidate is quietly picking up support. If this man wins, we can expect to see a lot of Trump agenda making it’s way through the House without delay. He is the Founder of the Freedom caucus and his name is Jim Jordan. He would be missed in the investigations but he is much more valuable as Speaker.
“What’s important is not who the next speaker is, but what the next speaker does,” Jordan told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “It’s time to start delivering on what we told the American people we would do.”
Forty-eight-year-old Ryan officially will not seek re-election in November, validating months of speculation around Washington the speaker was ready to hang up his hat after serving nearly two decades in Congress, he officially announced Wednesday morning. Ryan made the decision to spend more time with his family so as not to be a “weekend” father, he told reporters.
McCarthy has a good relationship with Trump personally but he is one of the knee buckling leadership we want to rid ourselves of. No one can accuse Jordan of trying to win a popularity contest and he is a rock ribbed conservative and his policies mesh almost perfectly with our president. Together they could push through the changes we need to permanently undo the damage of 8 years of Barack Obama.
Call your congressman and tell them you want Jim Jordan as the next Speaker of the House.
