The Daily Quote

“[House Speaker] Paul Ryan [R-WI] is entering a crucial stretch of his speakership, with the White House pressing him to notch wins on President Donald Trump's priorities even as he faces the same internal dynamics that sunk his predecessor. As lawmakers return from their two-week Easter recess, Ryan will be on the spot as the party tries to avoid a government shutdown and push a repeal of Obamacare through the House after failing the first time. Yet the House leader is being buffeted by forces beyond his control, including an unpredictable president unschooled on how to get legislation passed in Congress, and a group of GOP lawmakers who’ve so far resisted pressure to compromise on health care.”
