Paul Ryan just the latest House Republican to quit rather than run on toxic agenda
DCCC Spokesman Tyler Law issued the following statement on Speaker Ryan’s retirement announcement:
“Speaker Ryan sees what is coming in November, and is calling it quits rather than standing behind a House Republican agenda to increase healthcare costs for middle class families while slashing Social Security and Medicare to pay for his handouts to the richest and largest corporations. Unfortunately, for the many vulnerable House Republicans that Paul Ryan is abandoning, his historically unpopular and failed policies will hang over their reelections like a dark cloud.
“Stay tuned for more retirements as Republicans increasingly realize that their midterm prospects are doomed.”
