Ryan in danger of losing seat on appropriations committee



Published: Thu, December 16, 2010 @ 4:42 p.m.

Though a decision is not final, it appears that U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan is in serious jeopardy of losing his seat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.

Ryan of Niles, D-17th, ranks 30th in seniority among the current 37 Democratic members of the committee. Seven Democrats won’t return in January either through retirement or losing re-election bids, placing Ryan at No. 23.

Republicans currently have 23 members on the committee. With Republicans taking control of the House next month, the two parties will switch the number of members each has on committees.

But incoming Speaker of the House John Boehner, a Republican, plans to cut the number of seats on House committees by nearly 10 percent. That’s two less Democratic spots on appropriations: one of them probably Ryan.

The committee numbers are in negotiation so nothing is final, said Heather McMahon, Ryan’s spokesman.

As the least senior Democrat on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, it’s probable that Ryan will no longer be a member next month.

How often were we told by the media and talk show host, Ron Verb that we just had to elect Ryan because of how important his position was on these committees. Probably would have been better to vote for either of the other candidates and make some serious changes around here.

How goes the Ryan War on Truth? While the Chinese have been building on a foundation of learning the U.S.is making money with opt-out fees, bid rigging and other zero sum games. Which approach to life do you think is more stable and likely to prevail?

Tim doesn't have to worry about us and he doesn't need us right now. As long as he's a good boy and votes as he's told Mama Pelosi will take care of him.

It's a good thing our Congressman Tim has qualified for a lifetime government pension. With the job situation as bad as it is and his lack of any employment history outside of government it might be hard for him to find a job. A pension and free health insurance for life.
It just doesn't get any better. Oh wait a minute he got re-elected.

You hateful people would love watching our state and valley go bust just so you can badmouth people.

There is not any thoughtful conversation or facts just jibberish.

You should want the Valley to do well and committees are an important part of that goal.
