Paul Ryan took to the Washington Examiner to back President Trump and the GOP ticket, despite retiring next year. Ryan said:
When House Republicans campaigned in 2016, we made the American people a promise. We said that if voters placed their confidence in us and entrusted us with a mandate to govern, we would lead on the tough issues and improve people’s lives with our ideas.
Two years later, I’m proud that we have upheld our end of the bargain. We passed more than 1,000 bills in the House that make a meaningful difference. Now, as we approach another critical election, it’s important that Republicans are given the chance to build on this success, keep the economy strong, and expand opportunity for even more Americans.
Think about how the American people are better off thanks to the policies we have enacted working with this president. Today, unemployment is below 4 percent, and there are more job openings in America than people looking for work.
After the stagnation of the Obama era, our economy is growing at its strongest clip in years. Wages and benefits are rising at their fastest rate in a decade. We’ve rolled back regulations that were stifling growth and have allowed American small businesses and job creators to do what they do best.
