Ryan Rundown: In wake of shooting and ahead of shutdown, Ryan grapples with Planned Parenthood funding

In this week's Ryan Rundown: U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan asked for a moment of silence for the victims of Wednesday's mass shooting in San Bernadino, California, during the Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony later that day.

The massacre occurred less than a week after a mass shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood. Ryan called for an overhaul of the nation's mental illness health system on Tuesday, calling mental illness a "common denominator" in violent incidents.

The speaker faces pressure from some Democrats, whose calls for an end to the House investigation of Planned Parenthood intensified following the shooting.

Ryan may need the votes of Democrats to pass a spending bill ahead of the Dec. 12 deadline to avoid a default on federal debt. A contingent of Republicans aim to include riders addressing several issues, including Planned Parenthood funding, and the intake of Syrian refugees.

In the wake of last month's terrorist attacks in Paris, Ryan said it is "better to be safe than sorry" with refugees from the conflict-torn region. Predicting additional attacks similar to what occurred in France, the Janesville Republican advocated for a bill increasing scrutiny of refugees from Syria and Iraq, which passed the House 289-137.

And in a ceremonial move, Ryan sent President Barack Obama a formal invitation to the Jan. 12 State of the Union, the president's last.
