Rep. Mo Brooks mentioned Monday that he’ll proceed to give a boost to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, despite the most recent budget deal, unless a better alternative comes along.
“It’s about a comparison. You’ve got to have alternatives and Paul Ryan is it, and he’s got a very difficult situation interacting with this White House, this Senate and all the different groups of congressmen in the House of Representatives,” Mr. Brooks, Alabama Republican, mentioned on CNN.
He used to be one of the most House Republicans who didn’t give a boost to the most recent budget deal because of his fear over the deficit and the debt. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the deal contains $320 billion in deficit spending. Mr. Ryan driven the deal via, announcing a lot of that used to be because of necessary spending on entitlements and now not the extra earmarks within the invoice.
“Do I have reservations about busting through the spending caps last week in nondefense matters? Absolutely,” Mr. Brooks mentioned.
“It passed. I wish it hadn’t. We are where we are,” he mentioned.
