Paul Ryan is quitting like a coward

Paul Ryan is quitting like a coward”

That being said, there are certainly other factors that played into his decision, perhaps even more than his desire to help his kids with their homework. A final decision was made over the two-week congressional recess, which was partly spent on a family vacation in the Czech Republic.

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.

"Scuttlebutt is that Paul will have to step down from [the] speakership soon", one unnamed source close to leadership told Axios' Jonathan Swan and Mike Allen.

"It's not a total shocker that Paul Ryan is choosing not to run for reelection, or that he saw his days in Washington as being limited", says Casey.

The top House Republican appeared at ease as he reclined in a chair in his second-floor office overlooking the National Mall, hands clasped behind his head, reflecting on a career spent nearly entirely pushing for his policy visions in federal government. Now, some wonder if the GOP grip on the majority is already lost. In the 2018 election cycle alone, Ryan's political operation has raised an unprecedented $54 million, including $11 million in the first three months of 2018.

Meanwhile, Ryan's image held steady among Republicans, with two-thirds (66%) in April 2017 saying they had favorable views of him, unchanged from the previous November.

While Amodei appeared probably the very upfront regarding his fantasies, Rep. Tom Graves, " R-Ga., signaled to Politico that "his most powerful leadership inplace" would yield more success in the mid-terms, as energized Democrats may actually get a exact realistic prospect of successful roughly 2 dozen GOP-held House chairs to retake the chamber.

There's been some vocal support recently for a bill pending in the Senate that would take away President Donald Trump's ability to fire Mueller, who is leading a probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible participation by the Trump campaign.

Since 2015 Paul Ryan has been the Speaker of the House.

Bryce, endorsed by liberals like Vermont Sen. Janesville teacher Cathy Myers was also running on the Democratic side. Voters in Wisconsin want change - and that's why both Ryan and Walker faced hard paths to re-election.

While retiring Republicans often cite spending more time with family as a reason for leaving, it's also been the case that the home districts of many members leaving have been squarely in the crosshairs of Trump's most divisive issues: from immigration to Obamacare to higher state and local taxes during the tax reform debate.

But some of the best-known names are steering clear. "Paul Ryan has never been a leader, but rather a run-of-the-mill Republican, who's biggest claim to fame will be pushing through an abomination of a tax bill that lines the pockets of his wealthy friends at the expense of working Americans". So did Trump's former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, who once lived in the district.

"That's probably his greatest gift to us", said Rep. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota. The real challenge to winning, he said, will be sustaining the Democratic enthusiasm into the fall.

"It is kind of a bittersweet announcement that he is not going to go for re-election again and we totally understand that he wants to spend more time with his family", said Halabi.
