Ryan: Congress 'forfeiting' to Obama

Congress is “forfeiting” its power to the White House, Speaker Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanTwitter joins Democrats to boost mail-in voting — here's why Lobbying world John Ratcliffe is the right choice for director of national intelligence — and for America MORE (R-Wis.) said Thursday during a speech from the Capitol.

"Our problem is not so much that the presidency, under both parties, keeps breaking the rules, though it does,” Ryan said. "Our problem is that Congress, under both parties, keeps forfeiting the game, yielding to the executive branch, giving the president a blank check.”

"This means more than just out-of-control spending,” Ryan added. "It means more chaos at the border. It means not being able to live out your faith. It means not being free.”

Surrounded by more than a dozen House Republicans, Ryan called for lawmakers to “put the people back in the driver’s seat” during the latest installment of the GOP’s policy rollout.
