MADISON, Wis. — A national publication today reported that Speaker Paul Ryan may retire from Congress at the end of his term in 2018.

The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross:

“If it’s true, Paul Ryan won’t be sticking around to reap what he is sowing with his trickle down economic fantasies. The consequences of his massive tax giveaways to the wealthy and corporations will be paid for by devastating cuts to programs on which millions of Americans depend.

“To date Paul Ryan has lived a charmed Congressional life, enjoying the fruits of his privilege. He’s held up as the intellectual heart and soul of the modern Republican Party, despite his lack of actual achievement. Unless, that is, you believe the naming of a local post office qualifies one for canonization as a legislative heavyweight.”

“Now that Paul Ryan is in real danger of being held accountable for the consequences of his policy proposals he’s reportedly set to cut and run. It’s the kind of cowardice that should earn him a new nickname from Donald Trump.”
