Allan, I think #ExpelPaulRyan is also appropriate for at least these 3 reasons:
(1) This quote: “I think as public policy makers, we don’t just knee-jerk before we even have all of the facts and the data.”
> The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occured on December 14, 2012 . I don’t think 5+ years qualifies as knee-jerk, Jerk!
(2) This quote: The public needs to “step back and count our blessings.”
> I’m pretty sure he meant “count the blessed loved ones HE’s not lost in any of the mass shootings.”
And
(3) During the 2016 election cycle, Paul Ryan received $171,977 from gun rights groups like the NRA and Gun Owners of America — tops among 223 GOP members in the House of Representatives who shared $5,900,000 in “donations”. (Note: 9 Democrats received $106,000.)
