118 Controlling the Speaker
So it took a bit longer to have the Republicans vote to approve a Republican Speaker of the House in good old Washington DC. The last time the Republicans had total control, Paul Ryan was House Speaker. He proved to be a worthless piece of individual. He was the largest fighter of President Trump. John Boehner frustrated a whole bunch.
What the fifteen vote process did was to get in writing important rules of sending bills through the legislature, helping bring the legislative process closer to the actual legislature. It also gave definition as to how the Speaker can get fired.
Remember, the founding fathers of the United States hammered each other constantly. It was necessary to define what the country should be. Canada and Mexico had the same chance, but chose other.
