Paul Ryan and the Exodus of Republicans From Congress


When will the media cease praising House Speaker Paul D. Ryan's (R-Wis.) great accomplishment of "tax reform" without acknowledging that two critical parts of his plan - the border adjustment tax and, more important, revenue neutrality - were shamelessly sacrificed on the altar of President Trump?

"I have given this job everything I have", he said.

Scalise told The Associated Press, "I don't think now is the time to talk about what titles people want". At a donor retreat last week in Austin, Texas, Ryan interviewed White House Chief of Staff John Kelly before a group of donors, according to a person who attended the event.

Swan and Allen said a senior GOP House member predicted, "He will be gone by the end of July".

Property Speaker Paul Ryan claims he'll continue being the most effective Republican in the room until slumping in January, despite calls for a direction transition and also queries from inside his caucus regarding a dragged-out course of action harming the celebration at the November mid-terms. "W$3 e need more minorities, more women in our party and I've been focusing on that kind of recruitment". He appears to be a truly good man. "We don't resort to scaring you, we dare to inspire you".

Ryan announced his retirement from the House on Wednesday and told CNN's Jake Tapper that he has no plans to run for president or any other elected office in the future. Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement that Ryan was proud of his achievements and ready to focus on his family.

Brendan Buck, counselor to the speaker, says the "the speaker is proud of all that has been accomplished".

Buck says Ryan will discuss his decision at a news conference Wednesday. Of that, he has transferred more than $40 million to the National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm of the House Republicans. Ryan had made tax cuts a centerpiece of his legislative agenda, and Congress delivered on that late previous year.

"Serving the people of Wisconsin has been a tremendous honor for Speaker Ryan and he has served them well".

"The Speaker has kept up his breakneck fundraising schedule, traveling to more than 30 states and over 70 cities to help raise money for House Republicans this cycle, while keeping his pledge to spend weekends at home in Wisconsin", Ryan's organization said when announcing the fundraising figures.

"Right now the last thing I'm thinking about is running for something", Ryan said.

Meanwhile, as WND reported, while recent rumors on Capitol Hill suggest Ryan has been seriously considering an earlier resignation from his post, the top Democrat seeking his seat is raking in the dough. Both sought anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

She also reminded the current Republican leader in the House that he had once promised to do more to make the GOP more inclusive.
