Ryan burned his bridges with the GOP base.  Now he is about to drop a nuke on what's left.

That's a shame because he's at least trying to get things moving in the right direction.

"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security

Yes, I believe Ryan has burned and nuked his relationship with true Conservatives.  Like Rubio, he had great potential at one time.  At least Rubio is trying to give an olive branch back to the base.

When taking the entrance exam for medical school, most were perplexed by this question:

"Rearrange the letters P-N-E-S-I to spell out the part of the human body that is most useful when erect."

Those who spelled SPINE became doctors.

The rest are in Congress.
