Ryan rules out House action on tariffs.
“You would have to pass a law saying ‘don’t raise those tariffs’ and the president would have to sign that law. That’s not going to happen.”

A veto, as we all know, can be overridden by Congress.
We bring this up because short-termer Senator Bob Corker introduced a bill (co-sponsored by five Democrats and four Republicans) that would require Comrade Stupid to get congressional approval before enacting any more tariffs on national-security grounds.
But all is not lost, Soybeaners of Possum Hollar! ZEGS says:
“What’s more effective and constructive is to work with the administration to get the policy in a good place and that’s what we’re doing,” Ryan said during a press conference in the U.S. Capitol. “That’s going to be more effective than trying to pass a piece of legislation that will not make it into law.”
I guess he’s never met Comrade Trump?
