[Updated] The Pride of Janesville finds out that being Speaker of the US House of Representatives isn't an automatic win, The Washington Post reported:
...a group from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey may remember their trip to the nation’s capital last week for another reason: It was the occasion for a pointed snub of House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).
Dozens of the 218 students on the trip refused to have their photo taken with Ryan when he briefly joined them outside the capitol Thursday, students on the trip said...
Matthew Malespina, one of the students who stayed away, said in an interview Sunday that he chose not to be photographed with Ryan because he disagreed with the policies the speaker and his party are pushing on health care, among other things. He called Ryan “a man who puts his party before his country.”Update: These kids walked from a photo op that rich Tennessee Republican suckers will pay $10,000 for later this week.
