Breaking news: Paul Ryan is running for House Speaker. Despite issuing a list of demands which were largely rejected by the Freedom Caucus, Ryan is jumping in anyway. John Iadarola (Think Tank) and Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Wisconsin Republican Paul Ryan has officially entered the House speaker race, saying in a letter to colleagues, “After talking with so many of you, and hearing your words of encouragement, I believe we are ready to move forward as a one, united team.” His announcement came after securing the support of three disparate House Republican groups.
Ryan had said he would run if certain conditions were met. It’s not clear whether they were. He wanted the Republican Party to unite behind his candidacy and change the rules to make it harder for a speaker to be ousted, and he wanted more time to spend with his family.”*
