Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

The Washington press corps has long indulged Paul Ryan, describing him in countless admiring profiles as serious, principled, reasonable, and even compassionate, since long before he rose to become Speaker of the House. But taking “a closer look” at the process that led to yesterday’s narrow House approval of the Trumpcare bill, also known as the American Health Care Act, Seth Meyers is prepared to dispute that assessment of Ryan.

The bill itself is a potential disaster, of course, threatening ruinous impact on health insurance enrollment, coverage and costs for older citizens, and Medicaid coverage for the poor and disabled. Celebrating that “victory” with a beer bash combined terrible policy with obnoxious bad taste.

But Meyers wonders why Ryan — who complained so righteously about the process when Obamacare passed in 2009 — rammed through the Trumpcare bill with far less scrutiny and ceremony than the Democratic bill endured back then. Recall how the Affordable Care Act underwent weeks and months of hearings, readings, textual analysis, and budget scoring. None of that now: No hearings, no budget analysis, not  even a bill text to read until the day of the vote.

The Late Night host has lots of clips of Ryan whining. “I don’t think we should pass bills that we haven’t read and don’t know what they cost,” said he, in a perfect preview of what he and his members did yesterday.

You already know the Speaker is a hypocrite and a fraud, but it’s still highly amusing to watch Meyers prove it, clip by clip.

  1. 2018 BYE BYE RYAN,… AND THE OTHERS… OUT OF A JOB THEY DON’T KNOW HOW OR WANT TO DO to protect the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Hypocrites, ignominius unservice to all of us.

  2. That is one face that proves beauty is as beauty does. Goodbye democracy. It was nice while it lasted.

  3. Ryan is a smooth and consummate opportunist, taking advantage of his voter base simply to appease a childish immature infatuation with a Party Ideology.
    His inordinate devotion to such suggests a dysfunctional nature as severe as Donald’s, except he hides it well with a disingenuous charm undetectable to so many voters, and he isn’t emotionally immature like Donald—the media to a large extent has been suckered by the faux innocent veneer of Paul.

    But Paul’s day I would surmise is coming, and having lived a life of privilege and comfort, he’ll find the trauma of outrage, resulting from his cavalier attitude about the hardships of others, overwhelming.

  5. Irony would be for Ryan and the other 216 uninformed, party line voting republicans to have their insurance canceled because of a pre-existing condition called stupidity. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so all of the representatives that kvetched about the ACA being passed and not knowing what was in it, congratulations. When the ACA was passed, there was several months of readings, briefings, analysis and cost estimates. Trumpcare on the other hand was cobbled together to appeal to the radical right and the corporations. There weren’t any readings, in fact there was nothing to read until the day before it was voted on, no analysis, and the cost estimates were based on the previous version, without ample time to include the changes that were made to appease their masters. The senate has already said that it is not even going to be considered, and these are the people who have a 6 year tenure. They at least can hope that by the time they come up for re-election, the majority of the storm will have blown over. Unfortunately, the representatives only have a 2 year tenure, so there will be 216 chances to remove these people in 2018. Ryan is not in my district, but hopefully, we can get the gerrymandered districts redrawn and enough people are finally fed up that we can get rid of him. If not, the only other option is to replace enough republicans with democrats so that he loses his speakers position.

  6. The scary thing is that this is what Dynamic Scoring is, in its black and slimy heart.

    Make the pitch, vote based on that, and never, ever review it.
