Why was the House Chaplain fired? Some say because he was critical of the Tax Cuts for the rich.

Maybe this came back to bite him?

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi raised questions about Conroy after learning that the branch of the church he led - the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus - agreed to a $166.1 million bankruptcy settlement involving more than 500 active claims of sexual or physical abuse in five states. While she stopped short of rejecting his appointment, Pelosi briefly delayed it by asking for additional information. Once that matter was clarified Pelosi gave Conroy her full support.

Was he personally accused of something improper?

"Virtually every mainstream economist believes the Trump tax cut will widen the trade deficit so I am very curious to see how Trump spins a bigger trade deficit next year, since he can't credibly blame previous presidents anymore."

Ryan would fire Pope Francis too!

I wish he could be fired. What a disappointment.

Well, the trade deficit typically widens when the economy grows faster.

Virtually every mainstream economist believes the Trump tax cut will......cause the economy to grow faster.

Paul Ryan fired the House chaplain for preaching about our duty to consider the needs of the poor during the tax cuts debate.

Did Paul Ryan fire the House chaplain for criticizing tax cuts?

There have been complaints from members that the guy wasn't doing much of anything expected in the job.
Seriously? Opening prayers and "spriritual guidance" to a bunch of crooks and sex maniacs? He's not doing what's expected? LOL

i love how Fox News doesn't give a sh*t the House chaplain got fired for now reason. If Pelosi ever did that, Fox News would go commercial-free for 24 hrs just so they could fit in all the freaked outraged

and of course it's a Jesuit priest (social justice!) who Republicans demanded be replaced in the age of Trump

Really, you must be an insider, aka, a critter in the swamp.

One need not actually reside in the swamp to hear the howls at night.
