Paul Ryan and the Exodus of Republicans From Congress

Paul Ryan and the Exodus of Republicans From Congress”

On his way out the door, with his life's work totally destroyed, Mr Ryan is still unwilling to speak out against Trump. He was fearless, strategic and determined.

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

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he was not interested in seeking re-election. As Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan has refused to allow a vote on the Clean Dream Act, and just passed a disgraceful tax bill that further concentrates wealth at the top. Now Ryan is retiring to spend more time with his teenage children. For most Republicans nowadays, moderation in supporting Trump is no virtue. The futility of Ryan's resistance, Cillizza surmised, stemmed from the fact that "there is still considerable peril in openly breaking with Trump", who "remains very, very popular with people who voted for him".

"My kids have only known me as a weekend dad and now they're teenagers", he told King.

Breitbart News exposed that 2013 meeting, where a video recorded Ryan and Gutierrez stumping for Sen. "And we need more minorities, more women in our party", Ryan replied. "From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Paul for everything he has done for Wisconsin and the Republican Party".

If you look at all this and see an obsessive ideologue working tirelessly for Randian ends, I think you're being daft. You know why? Because our kids aren't getting younger. "One of the first things I fought for when I first got here was tax reform".

"Speaker Ryan has done an incredible job during his time in Congress", August said in a statement. "There's so much more I can do to keep continuity". So you better make the most of it. Even then, before the 115th Congress officially convened, I envisioned conflicts between the "repeal" wing of the Republican Party and the "replace" wing, making success on health care unlikely and Ryan the likeliest "fall guy" in any such scenario. He wanted the GOP to provide hope and opportunities to the poor.

He could have been a leader who put his party on the right side of history. If we're anxious about what we might want to be eight months from now... we need to focus on getting our job done and keeping the majority. But Ryan didn't bring up the Trump administration's minority problem all on his own. With Ryan's departure slated for January, Republicans will lose another establishment force who, at times, pushed back at Trump.

Polls have shown increasing Republican support for expanding Social Security, a position closer to Trump than Ryan, as well as declining Republican support for free trade agreements, which were once a cornerstone of conservative economic thinking. Ryan says he has done what he wanted to do in D.C. and that he is exhausted of being a "weekend" dad to his three teenagers who live with his wife in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Ryan's tightrope walk continued after Trump entered the White House.

But Ryan's support for small government and mass immigration was always an impossible contradiction for a nation that wants to be a middle-class society.

This is the second such trip that Pence and McCarthy have made to California.

"Paul Ryan's commitment to protecting the House majority is greater today than it was yesterday", said Bliss. That's why a populist real-estate developer and TV showman has eclipsed lifetime policy-wonk Ryan as the GOP's leader.
