Libertarian praises Ryan, says Boehner 'called me names'


A Libertarian Republican in the House is giving House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., credit for running a more inclusive House that allowed one of his bills to move in the chamber this week.

In contrast, he said former Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, used to call him names.

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., noted Wednesday that his bill to more fully audit the Federal Reserve passed out of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee this week, and said that never could have happened under Boehner.

"I would have to say, it is run differently. I think Speaker Ryan is more inclusive than Speaker Boehner," Massie said on CSPAN.

"Speaker Boehner called Ted Cruz a few names," he added. "I didn't go out and tell anybody in the media, but he's also called me names."

"And when somebody asked him why aren't you moving Massie's bill, he would say, 'Well, because he's a ... whatever,'" Massie said.

But Massie said Ryan isn't that way, and said movement on his bill to audit the Fed is proof. "That's a first for me, and it would never have happened under John Boehner," he said.

Approximately two months ago Congressman Louie Gohmert was a guest on Hannity's afternoon radio show and said that Boehner called him a (another name for excrement) "______head".

Ryan does seem to have a vague interest in keeping the GOP together and minimizing infighting. Boehner was just a self-absorbed prick. Good for Massie.

I used to really hate Ryan and I still do, but someone who is 90% scum is an improvement over someone who is 100% scum. Glad to see that he isn't John "The ayes have it" Bohner

Do what you think you have to do Thomas, you are a politician and you know what chips are being chased, while I do not.

Sure looks like identical steaming TARP cheering piles to me, with lip service a plenty.
