WASHINGTON, DC — Today, House Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).
“John Boehner has been a great leader of the Republican Party and the House of Representatives. This was an act of pure selflessness. John’s decades of service have helped move our country forward, and I deeply value his friendship. We will miss John, and I am confident our conference will elect leaders who are capable of meeting the challenges our nation faces. I wish John and his family well as he begins the next phase of his life.”
