Cedar Springs, Michigan( CNN) Rep. Justin Amash said Monday the answer for dysfunction in Washington likely simmers down to removing House Speaker Paul Ryan and replacing him with someone who is “nonpartisan.”

“We need either a change in direction from this speaker, or we need a new speaker, ” Amash said while in reply to a question about the perpetual gridlock in Washington.

The Michigan Republican also laced into President Donald Trump, carving close to a strategy of detonation Republican leaders like Ryan and Trump, during a town hall with about 100 residents from his district, which is loosely centered around Grand Rapids.
