Is Spending Bill a Signal Ryan Is Out?

Playbook: “When Paul Ryan was about to take the speakership from John Boehner, he railed against a package just like this. He took some heat yesterday in a closed Republican meeting from lawmakers who felt cut out by the process by which this bill was put together. He’s now putting this bill on the floor, and urging Republicans to vote yes. There’s a lot of chatter that a man seeking another term as speaker would never put this bill on the floor. At the moment, it’s just that — chatter. Ryan has said he’ll decide on his re-election in the spring after a conversation with his wife.”
