So much for supporting Conservative values. Paul Ryan was so desperate to pass Obama-trade that he doesn’t want anybody to know what’s in the bill:
“It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,” he told the Rules Committee.
So why the secrecy? Because the bill is alleged to give President Obama more authority to push his immigration and “climate change” agenda on Americans. And Paul Ryan thought that was a terrible thing (not that Obama would get more authority but that the word got out):
Ryan, however, wasn’t finished. Appearing on Fox and Friends, he attacked conservative websites Breitbart said “have revealed the immigration and climate change provisions within President Obama’s trade agenda.”
“Look, first of all, don’t believe everything you read on the internet, Brian,” he said after being asked about provisions dealing with climate change and immigration. “Just let me give you a little tip there. Second of all, this is why we need to pass Trade Promotion Authority. What we have in Trade Promotion Authority is a prevention of any immigration changes, of any climate change legislation going into a trade agreement. So by passing Trade Promotion Authority, we’re putting congress in the driver’s seat which is transparency.”
Senator Ted Cruz also supports Ryan and Obama and wants the bill passed… immigration and “climate change” provisions and all.
Ryan has turned out to be anything but a straight shooter and his plea for needing to pass the bill before its contents can be revealed to the American public is worse than Nancy Pelosi’s “we need to pass it in order to know what’s in it.”
