Why Congressman Dave Brat didn’t vote for Paul Ryan. Â Brat didn’t vote for Ryan for exactly the reasons he previously said,
â€œBefore 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 theÂ ten Republican consensus principlesÂ I laid out,â€ Brat said in a statement.Â â€œUnfortunately, I never received that confirmation from Congressman Ryan, preventing me from being able to support him.â€
Don’t you love a man who is true to his word? Â Don’t you wish all Congressmen were like Dave Brat?
