Ryan Rundown: Ryan pushes stop-gap funding bill, faces holiday deadline

In this week's Ryan Rundown: Facing a Dec. 11 funding deadline, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan pushes a stop-gap measure that gives federal legislators more time to come to an agreement on the long-term funding bill.

Disagreements over policy riders dealing with a variety of issues, as well as resistance from some Republicans, complicate the process. With unity lacking among House conservatives over issues such as Planned Parenthood funding, Speaker Ryan may need to secure the votes of Democrats to pass an omnibus funding bill before the holiday break.

The funding deadline comes a week after Ryan delivered a speech outlining his vision for the House's 2016 legislative agenda. He said he aims to put forth legislation that is wholly counter to that offered by Democrats.

Ryan said the Republican strategy will not be dissuaded by a lack of presidential support. He said the plan will showcase the ideal Republican policy in 2017 and beyond.

The speaker denounced GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump's calls for a ban on Muslim entry into the United States, saying the proposed move "is not conservatism ... not what this party stands for." Ryan did not say whether he would support Trump if he wins the party's nomination this spring.

And as details related to the Dec. 2 San Bernardino shooting emerged, Ryan redoubled his support of a move to overhaul the nation's mental health system, calling mental illness a common theme among mass shootings. He said President Barack Obama's proposal to create restrictions on gun purchases similar to the no-fly list used by airlines would violate citizens' rights.
