Regular order? Seriously?

CRomnibus sounded evil, easy to vilify. So this year, when House Speaker Paul Ryan pushes another omnibus spending bill, he kicks in with a promises of "regular order" emerging in government next year.

I dare guess this year's omnibus spending bill will once again be complicit with the president's agenda, including a massive program to resettle Syrians in the U.S.

I have a new name for the Speaker. I call him the Cowardly Ryan, a speaker who hides behind the promise of a better tomorrow while delivering betrayal today.

Update: About midway through Tuesday night's Republican debate, Ryan apparently issued a statement saying a deal has been struck with Democrats allowing the spending plan's approval to roll. The timing? Suspicious, as if Ryan hoped the debate would provide distraction from what he's moving forward.
