Ryan to Retire From Congress

Ryan said he meant to serve out his term as speaker but wanted more time with his family. Deficit hawk Ryan retires as Speaker with the USA operating under a trillion dollar yearly deficit.
One White House official said there are worries among the President's aides that Ryan's choice not to seek re-election might signal to other members who are concerned about losing their races that they shouldn't run, either.
When giving examples of what kind of recruitment he's been involved with, Ryan mentioned Rep. Mia Love, the Utah Republican whose parents are Haitian immigrants and whose criticism of the president is well-known.
Number three Republican Steve Scalise, a Louisiana conservative, has also reportedly signalled he has his eye on the speakership.
Newcastle vs Arsenal, Premier League
It was the hosts who went ahead on 68 minutes through Matt Ritchie's composed finish after some good work by Islam Slimani . Calum Chambers could have restored Arsenal's lead before the interval, but the defender shot wide from Mustafi's knock down.
Ryan was a protégé of the late Jack Kemp, the quarterback-turned-legislator who was the prime advocate starting in the 1970s and '80s of an opportunity-based, inclusive and tolerant Republican conservatism. A month before the 2016 election, Ryan said he was "sickened" by Trump's remarks about groping women captured on an audio tape recorded in 2005. Around the same time, 86% of Democrats said they approved of the ACA.
Ryan linked himself to Trump and declines to give a strong defense of the rule of law.
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.
Paul Ryan had to be coaxed into taking the speaker's gavel in 2015 and never seemed to relish the job. After leaving a meeting with Ryan Wednesday morning, Republican Representative Charlie Dent said the Republicans were in a "no-win" position with Trump, stuck between competing pressures to be both loyal to and critical of the president, according to CNN reporter Manu Raju.
Ryan, who seemed incapable of counter arguing, simply said he wasn't happy she felt excluded.
"I believe he'll go down in history as the most pro-life speaker of the House we've ever had, which is important to me as well", Banks said. "It's hard to imagine a next Congressman", said Andrew Iverson, Chairman of the Republican Party of Rock County. "We are with you Paul!" the president tweeted following the announcement. The absence of a clear successor to Ryan could allow an influential bloc of far-right conservatives to gain more power among House Republicans.
And because of that, Dent doesn't seeRyan's retirement as having any direct effect on GOP candidates' chances this fall. "He genuinely cares about every American, and we share a belief that conservative ideals will help improve the lives of even our most marginalized populations".
"What I would hate to do, in this time when we have asymmetrical threats all across the world, particularly with ISIS, is to have an AUMF that short - that ties the hands of our military behind their backs".
