Title: PAUL RYAN ADMITS HE WAS A FRAUD ALL ALONG

"...Of course, Ryan would break his promise after Trump’s shock victory.

Paul Ryan was forced into the speakership, he did not want it because he seen that the  teabaggers had Boner by the balls and feared the same thing would happen to him, it got just a tad worse when Trump won. Ryan was scared of getting voted out if he went against the cult's (that he represenented) will. The GOP is scared of their own base than they are of Twitz...

Ryan got the speakership because he had a relatively clean record and was in a very safe district, well it was that way until Trump bullied his way into the presidency, he had no choice but to leave and let his district remain R because he stood a very big chance of getting voted out either by a bagger in the primary or a D in the general, that was a solid R district. Eric Cantor was in a very safe R district then his constituents seemed to find out he was a Jew after 13 years of representing that district and doomed him...

Cantor wasn't doing much for his district taking his position for granted.  A Tea Party candidate was elected. After that, the inevitable redistricting occurred.

Nope the redistricting occured in 2012 and a Democrat took the seat after 2018 election, it is no less GOP than it was then either. It will likely return to GOP control after Twitler is gone...

I had no sympathy for Cantor, he was an arrogant piece of tape recorder on TV, repeating the talking points of the day, he was boring. Kevin MCCarthy is not doing much for his district either and held the same position after him....

There is proof of that, goes even further back than when he threw Bill OReilly under the bus by standing by him just after getting the presidency. what did it take, about two days for Billy to leave the network after that schtick backfired?

Indeed. 
It seems old and tired now but remember that fool screwed up owning a casino. There is nothing in our government he has touched that is now not worse, or complete FUBAR. Trade, foreign relations, he has forever tainted the GOP and the Christian religion, ruined the reputations of respected CEOs and Generals, fox news is even trying to side step away from him.

In the selling of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA) leading up to its passage, Americans were promised skyrocketing job growth. In a November 4, 2017 Tweet then Speaker Paul Ryan wrote, “Tax Cuts & Jobs Act will create nearly 1 million new jobs.”

Unfortunately for the American people that has turned out to be just another broken promise made by a politician.

In the 18 months following passage of the TCJA job creation was only 470,000 greater than the number of jobs created during the 18 months prior to passage of the TCJA, less than half of the million additional jobs promised. At $1.9 million in additional debt, each of the 470,000 additional jobs came at a cost of more than $4,000,000 per job. How bad of a return on investment is that for the American taxpayer?

Don’t you think Ryan should have said something while in charge? It would have made bigger difference than some book he rights after the fact.

Why couldn’t he make a difference by standing up to Trumpet?

True, he was nearly bulletproof in his role due to the manner in which he became SOH and it's safe to say that some R house members would have sided with him over Trump on certain issues.

His only worry was a primary challenge which he likely would have won. So, the author was correct in stating that Ryan wanted to escape from Trump.
