Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was confronted by an angry GOP voter while taking a tour of a manufacturing facility in Wisconsin on Wednesday; blasting republican leadership for breaking their seven-year promise to the American people.
The unnamed factory worker, identified by the Associated Press as a registered republican, confronted the Speaker during the question and answer portion of Ryan’s tour of the facility.
“For eight horrible years, I heard: ‘We don’t have control of the House. We don’t have the Senate. We don’t have the presidency.’ Okay? And: ‘When we get in we have a plan and we’re going to change stuff.’ I’ll tell you what, you’re in there now and all I see is infighting. It is very dysfunctional,” the worker told Ryan.
The Speaker agreed with the disgruntled voter, saying he feels his “frustration” and that the republicans “have got to get it done” or the country would “continue down a bad path.”
“I can make sure that the House delivers. I don’t run the Senate, I run the House,” he added.
Ryan went on to say the GOP-led Congress is poised to begin work on other issues not relating to healthcare, including infrastructure, re-organizing the American tax code, rebuilding the military, and expanding the country’s manufacturing base.
