    Ryan could retire after 2018 midterms: report

    Ryan could retire after 2018 midterms: report

    12/14/17 12:36 PM EST



    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is reportedly considering retiring after the 2018 midterm elections.

    Politico reported
    Thursday that Ryan has told his “closest confidants” that his current term as speaker will be his last.

    According to Politico interviews with three dozen of Ryan’s colleagues, aides, lobbyists and allies, “not a single person believed Ryan will stay in Congress past 2018.”Ryan denies the speculation, which has swirled for months.

    “There is certainly a school of thought that says ‘leave on a high note,’” a GOP lawmaker close to Ryan told The Hill in November. “And passage of tax reform would be a high note for a guy that’s spent 18 years in Congress working on it.”

    Ryan is currently pushing for tax reform, which congressional Republicans have said they hope to get to President Trump’s desk by Christmas.

    Several top GOP lawmakers have appeared to be positioning themselves for a bid to replace Ryan if he steps down.

    A few of the possible names to replace the Speaker include Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who dropped his bid for the Speakership two years ago, Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who almost died after a mass shooting in June, GOP Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), and Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee.

    HA HA! Ryan's been working on tax reform for 18 years. Isn't that just the funniest thing you've ever heard??!! I mean how ineffective are you when it takes 18 years to tell Americans we want to cut your taxes and tell American Businesses we want to lower your corporate and business tax rates so we can grow our economy and put Americans back to work??!!

    One of these little cute third graders wearing their little Trump MAGA hats could sell it in a New York minute on Fox and Friends.

    I hope it passes. It does so much for so many people and businesses, it's a great thing, and should pass unanimously by Republicans. In my opinion, anyone who votes against it at this point will live in infamy as a phony baloney. No McCain, you will not be the "maverick", you will just be a prick. No Corker, you will be a "man of your word", you will be a fiscal moron. No Rubio, you will not be a man of the poor people, you will be an idiot socialist.
