Since 1999, Paul Ryan has served in Congress as the U.S. Representative for Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district. Recently, though, after 19 years of service, Ryan has announced that he will not seek reelection. After making this announcement, Ryan appeared on Fox News for his first exclusive interview since letting the country know that he would not seek reelection.
Ryan explained that the rationale for his decision not to seek reelection revolved mostly around his children and his desire to spend more time with them while they were still young. Still, Ryan said that he is optimistic that he is leaving the leadership of the GOP in good hands and that he is proud of what he and his colleagues were able to accomplish.
During his interview, Ryan discussed these accomplishments as well as the things he still wishes he had been able to accomplish during his time in Congress. Chief among the goals Ryan will leave unfulfilled is entitlement reform – something the Speaker has been passionate about but unable to move forward with. In addition to not being able to pass entitlement reform, Ryan is also regretful about not being able to completely abolish the Affordable Care Act after President Trump took office.
