It’s official: Paul Ryan won’t be running for re-election. He’s the 39th Republican to announce a retirement from office this year. It’s almost as if they know something.
He stated his two major accomplishments:
Ryan had long championed overhauling the tax code, a goal accomplished with the passage last year of the sweeping GOP tax bill.
“That’s something I’ve been working on my entire adult life,” Ryan said at his news conference.
He cited tax reform and rebuilding the military as his two biggest achievements and said he wants to accomplish more before stepping down.
What? He’s proud of a tax reform that’s a bonanza for the filthy rich and increases our debt?
Someone tell me when our military was weak and needed strengthening, because right now all I see is expensive overkill. So Ryan helped make that worse?
I think it’s more like he’s done all the damage he can do, and he’s getting out to enjoy his ill-gotten gains.
