The Paul Ryan legacy that matters the most

The Paul Ryan legacy that matters the most”

Ryan claimed he has made a decision to not to seek reelection strictly so he could spend time with family, though many speculate that he stepped down to avoid the midterm election, where the Democrats have a very good chance of taking the House of Representatives from the Republicans. The Trumpian revolution, which Ryan had long resisted, appeared to have claimed another victory, dispatching another occasional critic and reaffirming the president's growing hold on a shrinking electoral coalition. After the debacle in 2015, it is unclear that McCarthy will have the votes to replace Ryan, and there is a chance Scalise may take the position instead.

"McCarthy feels he's in a very good place, after a day of talking to members and the White House", Swan and Allen wrote. "I just can't let that happen", he said at the time.

She also reminded the current Republican leader in the House that he had once promised to do more to make the GOP more inclusive. Wisconsin House Speaker Robin Vos, who has championed Republican Gov. Scott Walker's agenda, decided not to run.

Paul Davis Ryan - once the Republican Party golden boy, now the speaker of the House who is leaving elective politics after two decades at just 48 years old - said the thing that bothers him the most in today's political climate is "identity politics".

During Ryan's almost two decades on Capitol Hill, conservative messaging around those policy goals has become more refined and, until the current Congress took aim at Obamacare previous year and launched a progressive revival, a political "third rail" slowly being starved of voltage.

Gallup first measured Americans' views of Ryan in 2012 when Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney chose Ryan as his vice presidential running mate.

"But the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand", Ryan said.

He told King on Thursday, "Nothing trumps my family, nothing trumps the fact I don't want to be a weekend dad for my entire kids' lives and nothing trumps the fact that we've accomplished a great deal".

But the congressman said it's unlikely that he'd serve in Trump's Cabinet or at the White House.

The protests Ryan offered rarely had an impact. Lamb won in part by hammering Ryan and the GOP majority as a threat to Social Security and Medicare.

But throughout it all, Trump's power within the party continued to grow, as Ryan's waned. Some four dozen House Republicans - including powerful committee chairmen - are calling it quits. At the time when Republican Washington needed a path toward action on health care, another Paul proved to be a far from certain trumpet, with disastrous consequences for his party.

Ryan is among the approximately 40 House Republican declining to seek re-election - about twice the number of Democrats leaving.

Amid weeks of speculation about Ryan's death, the contest because of his post was being believed a two man race amongst home Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the No. 2 man in GOP House direction, also Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the No. 3 male.

Add Ryan's retirement to the mix, and donors, lawmakers and strategists are raising red flags about a prolonged period of uncertainty unlike anything ever seen in modern House history.

In recent months, Ryan has generally been more frank about the tensions of his job in private.

Ryan partially accomplished his mission previous year with the passage of a draconian tax bill, pushed by GOP congressional leaders and the Trump administration, that largely benefits the nation's wealthiest people while heaping new suffering on low- and middle-income Americans.

Stanley Hubbard, a billionaire Republican donor who owns the radio company Hubbard Broadcasting, said fundraising skill "absolutely" would be a key to choosing the next speaker. "The speaker thanked the chief of staff for being one of the sane guys in office".
