Why Congressman Dave Brat didn’t vote for Paul Ryan. Brat didn’t vote for Ryan for exactly the reasons he previously said,
“Before Congressman Ryan announced his consideration for the position, I made a promise to my constituents to only vote for a Speaker candidate who was willing to commit, on paper, to the ten Republican consensus principles I laid out,” Brat said in a statement. “Unfortunately, I never received that confirmation from Congressman Ryan, preventing me from being able to support him.”
Don’t you love a man who is true to his word? Don’t you wish all Congressmen were like Dave Brat?
