Default The next Speaker of the House?

So, I'm not the most constitutionally, or political policy studied person here, but this article certainly caught my interest... I'm wondering what those that are more educated on such matters than I have to say about it?

Nope, Jim Jordan from Ohio. It's too bad Kevin McCarthy is the one who seems to be getting the RINO blessing. We will be disappointed in him even more than we were with Paul Ryan.

I found it odd that she bailed out when she did so at least from the way I look at it there has to be a reason which will show itself sooner or later. I have no doubt she will be running for something soon enough.

I too think there's more to the story with Haley. She's good and I hope does something else in the cabinet but I'm not sure that's where she wants to be.

What gives me the willies is the list of likely committer heads in Congress if the Democrats win a majority.
Pelosi. Waters. Lowey and Schiff will be in positions to do some real damage. Waters has already vowed to dissect Trumps finances and Taxes ad nauseam. Kind of like the collusion investigation on steroids.

I lost any use for Ryan when he tried to balance the budget on the backs of the military retirees. For those that don't remember he wanted to take a full percentage point of cost of living allowances from military retirees but did not want to do the same for other federal retirees. That sort of irritated me!
