Paul Ryan is quitting like a coward

House Paul Ryan speaks at a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S House Paul Ryan speaks at a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

She says she's looking forward to having more balance in the family's life.

Ryan, though, said he had no regrets after having accomplished "a heckuva lot" during his time in a job he never really wanted.

Asked whether Ryan's relationship with President Donald Trump had anything to do with his decision to step down, Janna Ryan said it did not.

"I want to get this done this spring", Ryan said at a news conference, referring to possible House passage of a farm bill with changes to nutrition assistance programs that is expected to face deep opposition.

So who should take Ryan's position as House GOP leader? Ryan has been "a steady force in contrast to the president's more mercurial tone", said Rep. Mark Sanford of SC.

McConnell hailed Ryan on the Senate floor Wednesday after Ryan announced he will be retiring after finishing out his term. So Paul Ryan had to defend his party on national television.

House Republicans will also now be forced to debate Ryan's replacement as their leader, even as they run for reelection. Throughout Gallup polls from 2012 to 2016, more Americans viewed him favorably than unfavorably. Ryan took that job after that. Even if the Republicans retain a slim majority next year, Ryan's longstanding ambition to cut back on entitlements like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid is a non-starter. He says he has given the job "everything that I have".

Ryan responded by explaining that he wants to recruit more minorities to Congress. Now, all three of his children are teenagers.

"Now, more than ever, we need to ensure our nation remains on the correct path".

Pence says U.S. could possibly reach NAFTA deal
The United States, France and Britain were all taking part in the strikes against Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime. Pence said they simply had a difference of opinion and some issues were "set aside, for a later date".

Swan and Allen said a senior GOP House member predicted, "He will be gone by the end of July". And she commends him for his "steadfast commitment to our country".

"The rumor mill is that Paul Ryan is getting ready to resign in the next 30 to 60 days and that Steve Scalise will be the new speaker", Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nev., told Nevada Newsmakers on March 26, noting that he's sharing the current buzz on Capitol Hill. As the philosopher Edmund Burke wrote: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing". We are with you Paul!'

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. Buck said Ryan will serve out his term and retire in January.

Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, also dismissed the argument that his remaining speaker's ending will hurt get together initiatives to keep its property majority as "only inner D.C. gossip".

According to Axios, Ryan's surprise announcement on Wednesday that he will not run for re-election, already has Republicans in the House maneuvering to replace him by lining up allies and calling Ryan a "lame duck".

Ryan's plans have been the source of much speculation amid Republican concerns over keeping their majority in the House of Representatives.

A self-styled budget expert, Ryan had made the tax cuts Congress delivered previous year a centerpiece of his small-government agenda and a personal cause, even though they helped skyrocket projected annual deficits toward $1 trillion. Both sought anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Suggestions have also been made that Ryan's departure could lead to other republicans also ending their congressional careers.
