Congressman Tim Ryan Has Got To Go In 2018.....

First, he "Challenged" Minority Leader Pelosi's Leadership Position In The House In 2017, and now this DINO supports Trump's Tax Cuts. Rumor has it he will try to run for POTUS in 2020. This cannot happen. This can never be. Tim Ryan's seat is SAFE DEM and Ohioans, Find A REAL DEMOCRAT to run against Tim Ryan in 2018, ASAP!!!

Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan (Ohio) is going against party leaders and calling for a business friendly agenda ahead of the 2018-midterm elections.

“To be competitive globally, we have to reduce the corporate tax rate,” Ryan told The Hill in an interview from his Youngstown, Ohio, district office. “We’re just not competitive globally because of that."

Ryan, a fast-rising Democrat from industrial Ohio, is challenging Democrats to take a different approach to big business and work with corporate America to create jobs.

"We can’t just be the party of redistribution of wealth; we need to be the party of the creation of wealth in communities all over the country, not to just Silicon Valley, not just Wall Street, but all over."

The Democrat raised eyebrows on Capitol Hill last fall when he challenged Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for her seat as House Minority Leader. Ryan lost, but he hasn’t stopped calling for new blood to lead Democrats ahead of the 2018-midterm elections.

“There’s no better inside player than Nancy Pelosi and I don’t have any animosity towards her,” Ryan said. “I’m pretty clear that I’ve thought we probably need to go into '18 with a different messenger whether it was me or anybody else.”

It has already started. That's A Problem as haven't crapola of aspect started under Cheeto at all. Hell, the Secret Service is working for Free, Federal Workers are not getting their raises, Social Security and Medicare is being cut and much, much more.

WTF Is TIM RYAN ON THIS? He's saying dumb ass BS like this:

"We can’t just be the party of redistribution of wealth; we need to be the party of the creation of wealth in communities all over the country, not to just Silicon Valley, not just Wall Street, but all over."

OHIOANS -- PRIMARY DINO TIM RYAN IN 2018. He's Got To GO!

Cutting taxes does not create jobs. That is a myth that I think even Republicans understand, though they do not care. Why the hell would any business hire workers with "extra money" saved from taxes? If the demand for product stays the same, even if it only increases slightly, that is not enough justification for adding additional expenditures (which is what most businesses consider employees to be). They are certainly not marked as "Assets" on the accounting sheets. The only thing that really creates the demand for new hiring is a high enough demand for more production that cannot be met by any other means (automation, increasing production from existing workforce, or contracting with other partners).

Given that Ryan is from an industrial district, I could see from a completely cynical political perspective that he would echo the trick that Republicans use to get votes, but to try to promote it as a new message for the entire Democratic Party is just stupid. Either Ryan is stupid or he thinks we are.

If He is from an Industrial District is STFU and vote how he was going to vote on Trump's Tax Cuts. He still would be a DINO DESERVING a Primary Challenge For The Vote Alone.

However, with the video (In The Article Itself), it appears Tim Ryan not only wanted but desired ATTENTION for riding along with Cheeto's Tax Cuts. This is unacceptable behavior and characteristics for anyone holding an elected office in the U.S. House and/or Senate calling themselves a DEMOCRAT.

Especially in light of the U.S. Secret Service Men and Women WORKING FOR FREE to protect Cheeto, Federal Workers not getting their negotiated wage increases from Cheeto, Cheeto "thisclose" from pulling DACA Protection from Dreamers, Cheeto Cuts to Social Security and Medicare, Cheeto Charlottesville Melee BS (ALL OF IT), the BS Pardon of Racist Joe Arpaio last week --- shall we go on.....

Any Democrat saying anything about "Working With Cheeto" On ANYTHING at this point, needs to be Primary Challenged. Tim Ryan most definitely can be primary challenged in his SAFE DEM DISTRICT in 2018. Ohioans need to ENSURE THIS HAPPENS!
