4U.S. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jim Jor­dan, a lead­ing House con­ser­va­tive, said that fel­low con­ser­va­tives are not dis­cussing re­plac­ing Speaker Paul Ryan de­spite un­hap­pi­ness with the way Re­pub­li­can lead­ers han­dled last week’s debt ceil­ing in­crease that in­cluded no fis­cal re­forms. Many Repub­li­cans are un­happy with the deal Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump reached last week with Demo­cratic lead­ers to raise the debt ceil­ing. In an in­ter­view with Fox News, Jor­dan, a Re­pub­li­can, ap­peared to cast blame for the debt ceil­ing hike on party lead­ers in­clud­ing Ryan, say­ing they had not pro­vided any “good op­tions” to Trump be­fore he struck a deal with Democrats. “In this sit­u­a­tion, he [Trump] wasn’t pre­sented with good op­tions,” said Jor­dan, co-founder and for­mer chair­man of the House Free­dom Cau­cus, the most con­ser­va­tive group in the House.
