Ryan Blames Senate For Stalled Legislation

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, on Wednesday evening blamed the Senate for Congress’ failure to pass major legislation this year, saying his chamber has done their job.

Ryan added that the House has passed over 300 bills, including promised legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, but most of those bills have gone nowhere in the Senat.

The Speaker blamed the Senate’s need to confirm President Trump’s nominees and by the filibuster, which Ryan is open to eliminating.

“Of course I’d like to see them do majority votes on these things,” Ryan said during an appearance on Fox News. “They don’t have the votes there for it, that’s the flat-simple answer.”
