Ryan Rundown: Mixed results for Ryan in spending bill win

In this week's Ryan Rundown: Speaker Paul Ryan faces delays but then negotiates a thirteenth hour spending deal, avoiding a repeat of the 2013 government shutdown. While the $1.1 trillion bill provides federal funding though September of next year, House Speaker Ryan said"I don't think this is the way government should work."

The last-minute omnibus spending bill led some to compare Ryan's work to that of predecessor John Boehner, who faced criticism from conservatives for compromising with Democrats. Both parties saw wins and losses in the 2,000-plus page bill, including an end to an oil export ban long desired by Republicans, and a continuation of Planned Parenthood funding sought by Democrats.

The measure passed the House 316-113 Friday, with support from all of Wisconsin's delegates, save Democrat Mark Pocan, who joined 95 Republicans and 18 Democrats in voting against the legislation.

Observers say the success of the spending bill could remove barriers to Ryan's 2016 political agenda, which he said will be"inclusive" and focused on policy rather than the politics debated in the presidential election.

While the speaker said he intends to remain neutral as his party selects a presidential candidate, Ryan faced a wave of speculation over his possible involvement in narrowing down the field of candidates ahead of the spring primaries. He called the notion of his being drafted into the race"ridiculous."

And Ryan set a three-month deadline for legislators to draft a"responsible solution" to financial troubles in Puerto Rico. A U.S. territory, Puerto Rico lacks the bankruptcy powers of states, and officials warned the island is unable to meet obligations to creditors.
