Ryan vows to unify party, reshape House

Thursday, October 29, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Paul Ryan on Thursday became the youngest House speaker in nearly 150 years, winning one of the trickiest jobs in Washington by quelling rebellious conservatives and pledging to shake up the way Congress does business.

The 45-year-old Wisconsin Republican vowed to give every member of the House a chance to have their say in legislation and called for a clean slate after nearly a decade of acrimony and top-down decision-making that had rank-and-file lawmakers in both parties grumbling and voters disgusted.

“How reassuring it would be if we actually fixed the tax code, put patients in charge of their health care, grew our economy, strengthened our military, lifted people out of poverty and paid down the debt,” Mr. Ryan told the chamber. “At this point, nothing could be more inspiring than a job well done. Nothing could stir the heart more than real, concrete results.” [ Source ]
