Why is Paul Ryan getting away with such a lame excuse?

This is an article that I found on the Internet. The author is exactly right to wonder why the press didn't challenge House Speaker Paul Ryan. The jibberish that he spewed is nonsensical! Mar 28, 2017 1:45pm EDT by Barbara Morrill After Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s complete and epic failure last Friday to jam Trumpcare down America’s throat, Ryan had this excuse: “Moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains,” Ryan said, noting the GOP is feeling them today. And then on Monday: Speaking to the donors Monday, Ryan gave an explanation similar to the one he offered reporters on Friday — where he said that “moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains.” House Republicans have had the majority since 2010. House Republicans voted on—and passed!—repealing Obamacare 54 times in the ensuing seven years. This “growing pains” crap is an utter load of codswallop. It’s nothing more than an excuse for seven years of tossing red meat to the Republican base instead of actually governing. So when Ryan or his minions try to peddle this pathetic excuse, they should be called out on it. Every. Freaking. Time.
