Statement: Speaker Ryan’s Leadership and Commitment to Better Government Will be Missed

Washington, DC – Independent Women’s Forum President Carrie Lukas issued the following statement on Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s announcement that he will not seek re-election in 2018:

"Paul Ryan has been a consistent voice for a better government, which uses resources responsibly and focuses on providing economic opportunity for all.  His leadership and commitment to reforming our entitlement systems to make them work better, and act as a true safety net while protecting taxpayers, will be missed.  In a time of bitter partisanship and often bad behavior, Ryan has always been a gentleman in the best sense of the word."


Independent Women's Forum is dedicated to developing and advancing policies that aren’t just well intended, but actually enhance people’s freedom, choices, and opportunities.
