As Democrats begin to look forward to the 2018 election, putting together attack ads and finding candidates to oppose the GOP’s biggest offenders, one Congressman seems woefully out of reach: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Next to President Trump, Ryan is without a doubt the most reprehensible Republican in office today. Not only does he have bad ideas and a total apathy for the well-being of Americans (in fact, some suggest that he enjoys causing pain and suffering to the little folk), but he is in a unique position of power in a unique time in U.S. government, allowing him to create and destroy policy almost at will.
Unfortunately for America, the possibility of kicking Ryan out of office any time soon seems near impossible thanks to the crooked dealings of the GOP. Ryan’s district in Wisconsin benefits from an extreme degree of gerrymandering, as well as a state-wide, coordinated effort towards voter suppression.
