House Speaker Paul Ryan leaving Congress

Howard TerryApr 14, 2018

King continued to grill Ryan on whether Trump's antics ever made his job more hard, asking him "do you ever feel that you had to compromise your personal values to play along and get along?"

"Despite our differences, I commend his steadfast commitment to our country".

At the Congressional Leadership Fund, the political action committee at the forefront of Republican efforts to maintain a House majority, Executive Director Corry Bliss says he has Ryan's assurance that nothing will change. And what's it say about the fall's midterm elections?

The 48-year-old Wisconsin Republican only assumed the House speakership in 2015.

"I don't feel like I'm jumping ship - we have a fantastic leadership team we can transition to easily they already know how to do that, more importantly, I don't think anyone's particular race is going to hinge on whether or not Paul Ryan is Speaker of the House or not".

Ryan told reporters during his weekly news conference that he was happy that Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana had backed McCarthy to be Ryan's successor.

- He can't stand working with President Donald Trump, whose impulsive actions made governing chaotic and hard.

"I'm thankful for all Paul has done for the NRCC and am confident he has set us on a path to keep our majority".

Ryan has decided it is time to leave Congress, according to multiple reports. He took the role as an internal peacemaker after a conservative revolt ousted his predecessor John Boehner, and he never fully embraced Trump. "He likes to fish and hunt and spend time with the kids and that's just the way it ought to be", said Fitzgerald.

"I have a really good job where we can get a lot of things done versus being a congressman and being there for 20 years", Vos said.

Bryce - an ironworker and union organizer from Racine - said Democrats' challenge to Ryan is what forced him to retire, something his top political adviser called "laughable".

Ryan's Medicare plan has created a framework for Republicans looking to curb entitlement spending, particularly for the insurance program for the elderly, and gave the movement a prominent spokesman, Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) told Bloomberg Law.

The House speaker had made tax cuts a centerpiece of his legislative agenda, and Congress delivered on that late a year ago. Ryan announced Wednesday morning that he was not seeking another term. That made Ryan a figure of suspicion among Trump loyalists, including the 40 or so GOP members of the House Freedom Caucus who have the power to block legislation. Paul's decision to put his family first and spend more time with his wife and children is one that I respect. If the party moves away from Trump, it will turn toward someone not too closely associated with him - and Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2012, would be one of a limited number of choices.
