Foxx responds to Speaker Ryan's Retirement announcement

But she neglected to add context detailing the benefits accruing to poor families in the wake of bipartisan welfare reforms enacted in 1994 by the Clinton administration and a Republican Congress. "When I look at that picture, Mr. Speaker, I have to say, I don't see anybody that looks like me in terms of color or gender", said King.

"No disrespect to Paul, but quite frankly, you want somebody who's got skin in the game for after the election", he said.

"If we do our job, as we are, we are going to be fine as a majority", he said.

Ryan's now-lame-duck status threatens to clip GOP fundraising ahead of a more hard election season than expected.

"If I am here for one more term, my kids will only ever have known me as a weekend dad. Middle America - he's a capitalist who wants companies to do well - board service would make a lot of sense for him", said Tom Flannery, who leads the global chief executive board services practice at Boyden, the executive recruiter.

Those leaving Congress to run for a new office and advance their careers are doing so in places where Trump support is more solid or on the rise. He did not discuss any particular reform details, but the speaker said he discussed Medicare reform with President Donald Trump and has pushed to partially privatize Medicare.

Whether he will succeed is largely up to those now in power who have the responsibility to rein him in which Ryan appears to be abdicating and in which the other party leaders seem disinterested. "So I will be setting new priorities in my life".

Asked Thursday whether his comment constituted an endorsement of McCarthy, Scalise said that conversation is "way ahead of us". Scalise's path to power would be to emerge as the prime alternative if McCarthy again falters. Most Republicans strongly support the American flag and the English language and worry about discrimination against whites and protecting our borders from illegal immigrants. "We need more minorities, more women in our party".

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.

In addition to the speculation, Ryan's announcement will also unleash the rampant ambition of his GOP colleagues who are interested in succeeding him.

He pledged that he would help fellow Republicans extensively in the 2018 campaign and said he would continue raising money at a powerful pace, according to two lawmakers in the room.

California's House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, might be first in line to replace him.

"Leadership has never been on my bucket list, and it's not on my bucket list today", he said.

But Representative Jim Jordan of OH, a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus and a leading congressional critic of the Justice Department's and FBI's handling of the Russia-Trump investigation, said Friday he is considering a bid for a leadership post. "And I think the Speaker's decision is indicative of that".

Some Republicans put it more starkly.

"The push is coming from those who are interested in joining leadership sooner rather than later", said Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill. "Jim has the right to run, Freedom Caucus has a role to play in the party, I just think that they've overplayed their hand".

Conservatives, meanwhile, are quietly plotting how they can enhance their own leverage as the process plays out. "Because they have the authority to do that now", Ryan said. "I've been talking to people in the White House about it". He leaned into it.
