Why? Would you rather the House freedom caucus had more power to tear everything down, or a Speaker that at least can still find some sort of compromise and get budgets passed?

Neither of those are happening so I think you just set up a false dichotomy.

There was a compromise at the end of the last congress, where McConnell and the democrats got a spending omnibus through, which angered the Freedom Caucus. Which is why the reforms that Ryan is defending here were championed by the likes of Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz.
