Foxx responds to Speaker Ryan's Retirement announcement

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) said last week he would bring up the bill in the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs. "House Speaker Paul Ryan has chosen to eliminate the safety net that Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security provide in an effort to fund the tax plan, which benefits the rich", he said at the time. I don't agree with his political views, but I do believe that he really believes in them. "I took it reluctantly", he said.

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

Mr Ryan also said he has been assured by the White House that Mr Trump does not intend to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating potential collusion between Mr Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mr Mueller's probe.

"The president has a great relationship with Kevin McCarthy, but in terms of an announcement about who he wants to see as the next speaker, I don't have any announcements on that front", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a press briefing. "I don't see a value in that".

Americans of all political persuasions owe Ryan our gratitude. And I kind of just walked him through my thinking. "I didn't want this job at first ..."

Ryan's biggest failure in his tenure, however, was not his failure to coax the Republican's key policy overhaul through a conservative-controlled Congress. Ryan's largest failure was his inability to motivate, inspire and effectively lead his party. "That is now done".

The extent of Republicans' frustration with their own party establishment is underlined by responses to a question in the YouGov survey asking, "When Donald Trump disagrees with Republicans in Congress, who do you think is more likely to be right?"

"She's somebody I recruited in a primary to come to Congress".

"The speaker and the chief of staff both talked like they had left office", said one donor who attended the event, speaking anonymously because the proceedings were private. "And that is a very different feel and tone of where the party is going under President Trump". He said the trillion-dollar deficits that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected last week would have happened with or without the cuts. "Because of mandatory spending we call entitlements".

"I'm not going to run for president, that's not my plan, I'm not going to do that", Ryan told CNN. "Because it's got to happen".

Ryan's brand of politics, an uplifting fiscal conservatism rooted in his admiration of his former boss, Jack Kemp, seemed ascendant as recently as 2012, when Mitt Romney chose to add him to the presidential ticket. Conservatives should avoid that temptation, he said.

Ryan's sudden lame-duck status also could send a shockwave through donor circles that are relying on his leadership at the helm of the House majority.

"We've all discussed this". "We have accomplished so much at the state level and I look forward to ensuring Wisconsin continues down that path. Unemployment is at an all-time low, the tax burden is the lowest it has been in decades, and our schools remain strong". "There's so much more I can do to keep continuity". The profile boost, which comes with fundraising and organizational help, was an early sign of the party's optimism about toppling Ryan and the GOP majority.

However, Louisiana's Scalise has indicated he won't challenge McCarthy if the California lawmaker seeks the speakership. He asked Ryan what has changed since then.

At the same time, Ryan has struggled to hold together a fractious GOP caucus, initially failing in his attempt to pass a repeal of President Obama's health care law.
