Rep. Ryan On Working With Republicans: 'It's Just Been A Real Slog' | Stephanie Ruhle | MSNBC


  1. irs has been short staffed cut off badly in need of computers outdated for over 8 years, 2019 returns not processed 8 months behind right now. republicans still voting no

    1. @Candace H but assuring on website, that all those who havent received their desparately needed refunds , will be paid interest…..

  2. How can Tim Ryan and Gym Jordan be from the same state?
    Citizens of Ohio, please, send more people like Tim Ryan to Congress, and zero people like Gym Jordan.
    Thank you.
    Respectfully, America. 👍👍

    1. I’m in Tim Ryan’s district and believe me, I will vote for him for the Senate should he choose to run for Portman’s seat!! I am a huge supporter for Tim…
      Jim Jordan makes me ashamed to admit I’m an Ohioan.

      WTF GERALDO????? This is the first I’m hearing of this….please God, just no.

    2. @David J I didn’t either. I knew Jerry Springer was. I guess according to the video he’s thinking of running for the open Senate seat when Portman retires. That’s what I’m hearing in the video anyway…

    3. @J. Noble They also defaced the American flag with images of Trump and that stupid blue line. I am sure the police fely much better being beaten with an American flag with a blue line than just a regular American flag.
      These “patriots” are as completely unaware of the Flag Code as they are of the US Constitution!

    1. Thank you! I’m tired of giving air to the concept of “bipartisanship” with insanity and dictatorship. There’s no compromise in a dictatorship. That’s the whole point of it lol.

  3. Republicans aren’t interested in providing help and relief for millions of working class Americans , or anything else that would truly benefit the American people. Instead, they are focused like a space laser on Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss. It’s called priorities people.

    1. @drumwild so u don’t have a homeless problem either and 75percent of your small businesses are gone California is lala land but the tent business is booming

    2. @Damien Darko247 That trickle down is working now. All those jobs Biden has gotten rid of are making others lose there jobs as well. Weird

    3. They invested in the death market: caskets, body bags, HCQ, ventilators (that didn’t work), tax payer funded vaccines for their own black market (FL/CPAC) for donors, pilfered PPE to resell to the highest bidder, etc. All the rest is to distract from RICO/other investigations/charges. They seem to be laboring under the delusion that they can manipulate the outcome in their favor. Don’t forget they used CARES money to, allegedly, acquire smallpox virus. Death for everyone else is their platform/business model. No need to delude ourselves thinking there’s common ground.

    4. They’re interested in greed and stupidity. Otherwise, campaign coffers and support at the ballot box would suffer.

      Forget governing.

  4. Those Republicans are still fighting a war against Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama. They are stuck in the past and can’t see the future. You can’t work with people like that.

    1. In reality it goes all the way back to, feed a fish or teach to fish. Democrats have always wanted to feed someone a fish.
      Thats worked well 😕

    2. @elroy the great no. This is extenuating circumstances. And really, even if there’s a build up to a larger social safety net in the future, western and Central Europeans (i.e., the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, etc.) they provide a larger social safely net, and it is nothing but beneficial to everyone. And I’m not talking about socialism. I’m sick of the left calling for socialism, and I’m sick of the right calling everything social policy by Democrats socialism. In much Europe they have social democracy, and the people are very happy. They are work, they’re paid, they live and enjoy a good affordable life, they’re not afraid of getting sick and going bankrupt, they get to go on holiday, and really enjoy what life has to offer. Again, they’re happy. Why can’t America have nice things?

    3. @elroy the great whoever said there are no stupid questions was wrong. We are happy, but it is possible to feel multiple emotions at once or rotate. We’re happy. But we’re also empathetic, and feel the pain of other people’s struggles and plight. We also feel anger when we think about all the injustices in the world.

    1. They are LITERALLY sitting there broke and starving whilst the GOP officials that elected them deny them help and they’re STILL cheering them on. Half of America is just dumb and soulless now.

  5. As an Independent voter, I will support who ever works for the country not for their own special interest especially when religion is involved in their party. (Keep the faith dump the Religion)

    1. Here here buddy, one day it’ll be our time (the independents) to take power and bring true common sense legislation to our great American land. Independents United!!!

  6. Just saw a Republican senator tweeted (bragged) how the Relief bill will help restaurant owners and workers, a bill he voted against. Another example of GOP hypocrisy.

  7. Remember this in November 2022. They don’t want to give you money to feed your kids, to pay bills, or anything to help the country.

    1. The Dems need to take this to local TV, bill boards and radio in these red regions of poverty every day til the 2022 election is over. The people need to know that the $1400 and unemployment benefits were not supported by their people in DC. Until the Dems get a fire in their belly to fight fully in these districts, the same flim-flammers will be back.

    2. @elroy the great no. Mitch said no. And they voted on Trump’s 2000 dollars. All democrats voted yes, all GOP senators voted no. This was preelection and GOP had the majority. So yes, blame Mitch.

    3. @elroy the great why ask them…if I am not mistaken Republicans controlled the Senate and blocked everything the House passed on to them…and everything that wasn’t “Republican” sat on McConnell’s desk…nice try…next contestant…

    4. @elroy the great I have a conspiracy theory for you: Donald Trump is a Democrat insider, paid by the Democrats to take out the Republican party 🤣

  8. Love, love, LOVE Tim Ryan!! I’m in Ohio and am fighting for Mr. Ryan! Just as I did President Biden!! 💙🇺🇸♥️

  9. The problem is not just that they voted against the relief bill. They voted against the wishes of more than 2/3 of the American people, many of which are their constituents.
