Speaker of the House Paul Ryan slammed Arizona Senator John McCain Tuesday morning, calling out the ‘GOP Maverick’ for his crucial ‘no’ vote that sank the Republican’s seven-year pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Rep. Ryan was speaking with Fox Business when he was asked to comment on the recently passed bipartisan budget agreement; urging his “partners in government” to come together and tackle “entitlement reform.”

“The House Republicans passed the biggest entitlement reform package ever when we passed our healthcare bill. Unfortunately, somebody did this,” mocking Senator McCain’s iconic ‘thumbs-down’ vote to save the nation’s failing healthcare law, “Instead of that.”
“We passed a budget before that that cut $7.4 trillion in spending over ten years in the House. The problem is that we have to get our partners in government to be willing to do the kind of entitlement reform we’re willing to do in the House.
