BREAKING: Paul Ryan may resign as U.S. House speaker, Scalise will replace him in 30-60 days

Nevada’s 2nd U.S. House District Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City, said on Nevada Newsmakers Monday that Rep. Paul Ryan may soon resign as Speaker of the U.S. House.

Amodei said he was repeating a rumor that’s around Capitol Hill.

“The rumor mill is that Paul Ryan is getting ready to resign in the next 30 to 60 days and that Steve Scalise will be the new Speaker,” Amodei said.



“Now that is interesting because nobody has talked to members (of the U.S. House) on how they are going to vote (on new leadership),” Amodei said. “Now, maybe they have talked to all of the members but me. I don’t know, so that is the rumor mill from last week.”

Scalise, from Louisiana’s 1st U.S. House District, is currently the House majority whip, responsible for rounding up votes on various bills and issues. In June of 2017, he was shot during practice for the congressional baseball team in Virginia. He survived after being in critical condition and returned to Congress in late September of 2017.

This is not the first time resignation rumors about Ryan, of Wisconsin, have surfaced. Last December, he said he was “soul searching” about his leadership role in the U.S. House.  At the time, he denied the rumors of resignation, saying they were “irresponsible.”

When asked why Ryan would resign now, Amodei said that maybe he has accomplished what he set out to do as the U.S. House leader and may want to move on to other challenges.

“I don’t know. If I was just guessing, he wanted to do the tax-cut bill,”  Amodei said, referencing the passage in Congress of major tax cuts late last year. “You know, (former Speaker) John Boehner said the thing: ‘Hey, I checked all of the boxes I thought were important and I’m moving on to whatever else.'”

    Ryan & McConnell never intended to get rid of Obamacare they have had 7 years to write a replacement bill …. just like the (ANTI)Patriot Act was mysteriously already written and ready-to-go on 9/11 Remember Treasonous Ryan & Boehner took the debt ceiling off to give Obama a BLANK CHECK on your taxes.
    RINOneocon Paul Ryan plays the COY and CLEVER game ……like a girl who keeps saying NO while nodding her head YES
    Paul Ryan claims to be a Randian capitalist, but he never read her, or obviously, could not grasp her ideas and principles. Ryan does not attack Corporate Welfare but he rabidly attacks Workers. Rand opposed the Military and Religion as enslavers of the body and the mind, but Ryan grovels to both. Ryan is all FOR war ….. as long as HE can PROFIT off it but never, never, volunteered to serve alongside his “fellow Americans” or put himself in “harm’s way”. Ryan is all FOR religion, as long as he does not have to show grace to the Working Class. Ryan strongly attacks Social Security, even though he cashed every single check after his Father died, and was so rich to begin with that he could SAVE all those Social Security monies to pay for his college.

    Paul Ryan is married to Janna Little a liberal, left wing progressive, anti-Constitutional, big government George Soros supporter who voted for Barack Hussein Obama twice. Indoctrinated at the same college as Hitlery
    “SNOPES” claims this is false —– which CONFIRMS it.

  2. After the Omnibus bill he shouldn’t be allowed to resign – he should be kicked out of the House! There is not a dime’s worth of difference between Ryan and Pelosi or McConnell and Schumer. And Trump routinely stabs his supporters in the back.
