    Ryan says he is ‘not ready’ to back Trump, deepening GOP divide

    Not ready to support Rumps, not there yet.

    In an extraordinary rebuke of the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.), the nation’s highest-ranking GOP official, said Thursday that he could not support Donald Trump until he changes his tone and demonstrates that he shares the party’s values.

    Romney and the Bush's are saying they won't support Rumps. I presume that means they will discourage their county club form donating to the race.
    Laura Bush said she would vote for Hillary, I'm guessing her in laws will vote for Hillary too

    And oddly enough his popularity is due to the fact he doesn't share the parties values, and people are drawn to his tone, but hey Jeb demonstrated the parties values to the tune of a 150 million and a number equal to that in yawns, and then Marco, and then....., oh well... the party is non too handy at picking mouth pieces who share the values and tones people like.

    Trump went Left today in both HIS OWN tax plan, and supporting the 15 minimum wage.

    Conservatives, even considering voting for Trump need to hear why they can expect him to not be a Hillary Clone, but at least have a slight modicum of Republicanism as the Republican Candidate.

    He needs voters, voters don't need him. In team sports coachspeak: we can lose without him...

    I'm not open to raising it. He apparently is:


    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-im-open-to-doing-something-on-minimum-wage/

    Donald Trump suggested Wednesday that he would be open to lifting the minimum wage, switching his previous primary campaign stance that the U.S. could not afford to hike the current federal rate of $7.25 per hour.

    Asked specifically if he was "open to raising the minimum wage" during an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Trump responded: "I am open to doing something with it, because I don't like that."


    He did the same thing with commenting that his OWN tax plan doesn't have high enough rates.

    I've been telling ya- he changes back to Dem plans whenever he gets the chance. You're stuck with him, not me. You guys made your own beds....

    Asked whether he would consider raising the minimum wage, Trump said he is "looking at that" and "open to doing something with it," despite claiming months earlier that he opposed raising the minimum wage because the U.S. needs to keep wages low to compete with foreign countries.
    "I'm actually very different from most Republicans" on the issue, Trump said in the interview Wednesday. Doing something with it is hardly $15 an hour and as usual the other half of his statement is missing. Wonder why.

    That maybe so but they do have a lot of rich friends who usually give freely to the cause.
    I don't think the Kochs will answer the phone for Rumps either

    The Donald will be a full blown progressive by the time the November election rolls along.
    And his fans here will be right behind him.

    Why not just support Bernie?

    It's the odd looking grey suits we'll all be forced to wear in my case.

    It shouldn't exist, that's why. Its a Tenth Amendment issue.

    Besides, you're forgetting that during the campaign he said it shouldn't be raised.

    Burny is too idealistic all that stuff can't be free. He has some good thoughts though.

    Only you would consider an observation to be an insult.

    I guess it was lost in cyberspace or something but the other half of his comment was something to the effect of I'll improve the economy and bring back jobs better than minimum wage.
    If it's a tenth admendment issue wonder boy Paul Ryan should have eliminated it.
