The sincerity of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Catholic faith came into question Thursday as lawmakers attempted to negotiate a legislative compromise regarding the children of illegal immigrants, or “Dreamers.”

Rep. Linda Sanchez told a group of reporters that Mr. Ryan seemingly uses his Catholicism as a shield when talking about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. Her comments came against a political backdrop in which the Republican leader is also trying to secure a budget deal that will prevent a government shutdown Friday.

“As much as he loves to play the Catholic card and say that he really feels for these Dreamers and he wants people to believe he’s empathetic — schedule the vote,” the California Democrat said, the Washington Examiner reported. “Man up. Put your money where your mouth is. Be apart of the solution not apart of the problem.”

The fifth-ranking House Democrat also called the Wisconsin Republican the “sole impediment” to passing a new version of DACA, which would affect roughly 800,000 young people.

    You incompetent fool! The Catholic Church hierarchy is one of the most liberal forces in this country, spoken as a disappointed lifelong Catholic. How dare you question a person’s religious beliefs because he does not believe in flaunting the Constitution of this country, and trying to ameliorate President Obama’s unconstitutional action has caused. Get some sense lady, and stop pandering!

    THIS COUNTRY NEED TO CLEAN HOUSE IN WASHINGTON, EVERYONE WANTS THEIR WAY OR THEY FREEZE EVERYTHING. THEY NEED TO QUIT RUNNING THEIR BIG MOUTHS AND WHEN A BILL COMES UP HAVE A UP AND DOWN VOTE ON THE BILL AND MAJORITY VOTES PASS THE BILL. WHO EVER THOUGHT UP THIS CRAP OF 60 VOTES WAS PLAIN STUPID. CUT OUT ALL CRAFT, ONE BILL AT A TIME, AND IF ANYONE HAS TAKEN MONEY FROM LOBISTEST, THEN HAVE A PENALTY OF 10 THOUSAND DOLLAR AND 2 YEARS IN JAIL. RUN THIS PLACE LIKE A BUSINESS.

  • Everyone has got to know that this is a government take over. From Clinton introducing sharia & the quaran into our public schools to flooding our country with illegals. We need to stop doing business with Mexico and China. Kick all the illegals out with jail time and death penaltys if they come back. Want Mexico to pay for the wall? Do it through Western Union end of story. 33 1/3 cents on the dollar. If they dont like it go home. No one is forcing them to stay here.

    “The Catholic Card”? Hey Rep Sanchez, bigoted much? How about you playing the “Hispanic Card” or the “Woman Card” to get what you want? Democrats are putting their love of illegals over their duty to the Country. They are NOW complaining about “kicking the can down the road” when they just went 8 years kicking the can down the road so many times they are out of road. They ONLY care about hindering the progress being made by this administration. They are using their compliant media to push their racist, sexist agenda against any and all who dare to opposes them. They will push any lie, half truth or innuendo they can. Look at the accusation from (aptly named) Dick Durbin. Not a single other person in the room heard the comment he declares he heard form the President, yet the media is treating it as Gospel. Now we have this woman making a comment that would have ended the career of a Conservative female, Hispanic or not. Double standards?
