Ryan: Lib­er­als fa­vor agenda of gov­ern­ment to fa­vor elites

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION + WORLD -

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Fri­day, as he did it four days ear­lier, talked about the choices in this year’s elec­tions with­out ut­ter­ing the words “Don­ald Trump.” Af­ter pri­vately telling House Repub­li­cans that he would no longer de­fend or cam­paign for his party’s pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee, Ryan, R-Wis., tore into Demo­crat Hil­lary Clin­ton and lib­er­als for pur­su­ing a gov­ern­ment-heavy agenda for elites and said a GOP-run Congress would block at least parts of their plans.

In nearly 45 min­utes of re­marks to col­lege Repub­li­cans in Madi­son, Wis­con­sin, the closest he came to men­tion­ing Trump was in de­scrib­ing the pres­i­den­tial cam­paign’s tone and warn­ing stu­dents away from be­hav­ior that sounded sus­pi­ciously like things that have char­ac­ter­ized Trump’s now flag­ging cam­paign.

He told the stu­dents that Democrats want to in­crease bu­reau­cratic con­trol of peo­ples’ lives and con­firm lib­eral judges. “A Repub­li­can Congress will not stand for this,” he promised.
