Ryan Is Being Hammered Online For Claiming ‘The Most Productive’ Presidency And Congress Of Our Lifetime
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is being dragged and tossed around social media after claiming on Tuesday that this could be the “most productive” presidency and Congress in our lifetime.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, Ryan was asked how he would grade the president thus far in his term.
“I think he’s doing fine,” Ryan said.
The speaker declined to give a letter grade to Trump, adding that he thinks what’s important is whether “we do our jobs or not.”
“We have an opportunity in front of us. We’re making good progress on these things. We campaigned on doing serious things with this president,” Ryan said.
“It’s going to take us time to do those things. But we get this done, this will be the most productive presidency and Congress in our — in our lifetime.”
Ryan’s comments come after Senate Republicans last week released a draft of their plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
On Monday, several Senate Republicans said they would not back a procedural motion on the legislation after a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report fund the bill would leave 22 million more people without insurance over the next decade.

Yes, kicking 24 million plus people off healthcare, giving huge tax breaks to the rich, polluting the environment… very productive.
