Paul Ryan Life

Paul Davis Ryan (born January 29, 1970) is an American politician who served as the 54th speaker of the United States House of Representatives from October 2015 to January 2019.

He was also the 2012 vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party, running unsuccessfully alongside Mitt Romney. Ryan, a native of Janesville, Wisconsin, graduated from Miami University in 1992.

He spent five years in Washington, D.C., and then moved to Wisconsin in 1997 to work at his family's building business.

Ryan was elected to Congress in Wisconsin's 1st congressional district the following year, replacing an incumbent Republican who ran for the Senate.

Ryan will represent the district for 20 years.

He chaired the House Budget Committee from 2011 to 2015 and briefly chaired the House Ways and Means Committee in 2015 before being elected Speaker of the House in October 2015 following John Boehner's resignation. In the mid-2000s, Ryan, a self-proclaimed deficit hawk, became a leading promoter of Social Security privatization.

Two plans, "The Road to Prosperity" and "A Better Way"—which were both heavily inspired by Ryan, called for Medicare privatization, Medicaid reform, Medicare's reauthorization, and significant federal tax cuts in the 2010s.

He was instrumental in the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

The American Health Care Act of 2017, his other major piece of legislation, passed by the House but failed in the Senate by one vote.

Ryan's tenure as Speaker of the House—the bulk of which coincided with a period of unified Republican control of the federal government—saw a dramatic rise in federal government spending and deficits. In the 2018 midterm elections, Ryan declined to run for re-election.

Nancy Pelosi succeeded Ryan as Speaker of the House of Representatives after the Democratic Party took over the House of Representatives.

Early life and education

Paul Davis Ryan was born in Janesville, Wisconsin, the youngest of four children of Elizabeth "Betty" Ann (née Hutter), who later became an interior designer, and Paul Murray Ryan, a lawyer. He is a fifth-generation Wisconsinite. His father was of Irish descent, and his mother was of German and English descent. One of Ryan's paternal ancestors settled in Wisconsin before the Civil War. Patrick William Ryan, Patrick William Ryan's great-grandfather, formed an earthmoving company in 1884 that later became P. W. Ryan and Sons and is now known as Ryan Incorporated Central. Stanley M. Ryan, Ryan's grandfather, was appointed United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin. Ryan discovered that his DNA analysis showed that his Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry was 3 percent while filming a segment for PBS' Finding Your Roots.

Ryan attended St. Mary's Catholic School in Janesville, then attended Joseph A. Craig High School, where he was elected president of his junior class and became prom king. Ryan, the class president, served as a representative of the student body on the school board. Following his second year as a grill at McDonald's, Ryan took up a second year. He was in charge of his high school's ski, track, and varsity soccer teams, as well as playing basketball in a Catholic recreational league. He has been active in many academic and social clubs, including the Model United Nations. Ryan and his family used to go hiking and skiing in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Despite the fact that Ryan's father was not a lifelong drinker, he stayed sober for nearly 20 years after his first stint in recovery, he was already an addict by the time Ryan was a teenager. Ryan later wrote about his father, whom he revered as a youth, saying that "alcohol" made him more distant, irritable, and strained him, and he was amazed. Ryan discovered his 55-year-old father dead in bed of a heart attack, something Ryan later attributed to heavy alcohol intake. Ryan's grandmother moved in with the family following his father's death. Ryan assisted her mother while her mother commuted to college in Madison, Wisconsin, as she had Alzheimer's. Ryan earned Social Security survivorship funds from the time of his father's death to his 18th birthday, which were paid for his college education. Bruce Douglas, his mother, married widower Bruce Douglas later this year.

Ryan obtained his bachelor's degree in economics and political science from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, where he became interested in Friedrich Hayek's writings as well as Milton Friedman and Milton Friedman. He often visited libertarian professor Richard Hart's office to discuss the assumptions of these economists and Ayn Rand. Hart introduced Ryan to National Review, and Ryan began an internship in the Wisconsin U.S. office as a result of Hart's recommendation. Senator Bob Kasten, who served with Kasten's foreign affairs advisor, worked with him.

Ryan attended American University's Washington Semester program. He spent summers as a salesman for Oscar Mayer and then had to drive the Wienermobile. Ryan served on the College Republicans and worked with John Boehner's campaign in Washington. He was a member of the Delta Tau Delta Delta fraternity.

Post-congressional life

Ryan joined the board of directors of Fox Corporation, the owner of Fox News Channel and the Fox broadcast network, in March 2019. He joined SHINE Medical Technologies' board in August 2019. He has been on the faculty of the University of Notre Dame as a professor of practice for the 2019-20 academic year as a guest lecturer in political science and economics. Ryan was nominated as the delegation leader to accompany President Trump in Taipei in April 2019. President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan attended the Taiwan Relations Act's 40th anniversary of incorporation. In October 2019, Ryan founded the American Idea Foundation, a non-profit.

Ryan joined Teneo as a senior advisor in October 2020.

Personal life

Ryan married Janna Little, who is a tax attorney, in December 2000. Janna Ryan is a graduate of Wellesley College and George Washington University Law School, as well as a resident of Madill, Oklahoma. The Ryans live in Janesville, Wisconsin, in the historic district of Courthouse Hill. Elizabeth "Liza" Anne, Charles Wilson, and Samuel Lowery have three children. Ryan is a member of St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Janesville.

Janna is the cousin of former Democratic Representative Dan Boren (D-OK). She is also a granddaughter of Reuel Little, who helped the American Party raise money for George Wallace's 1968 presidential campaign. Ryan is related to Supreme Court justice Ketanji Brown Jackson through his marriage.

Ryan is also enrolled in P90X, a cross-training fitness program that was largely based on a family's history of fatal heart attacks before age 60. Since graduating from college, he has always been a fitness enthusiast and has been a personal trainer. "It works because it's called muscle confusion," he said of P90X. In many ways, it hits your body in a variety of ways. Pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, sit-ups, a lot of cardio, karate, and jumping training are among the exercises that have been implemented. It has been tested, and it's working. It's a good workout."

He weighed 163 pounds and maintained his body fat ratio between 6 and 8% in a 2010 Politico interview. "He is very, very lean," P90X's founder, who has personally trained Ryan several times, reiterated the statement. I know what 6 to 8 percent body fat looks like, but there is no fat on the guy. I'm around 9 percent and he's much leaner than I am. He has a 6-to- 8 percent body fat. You only have to eat right and exercise every day, and that's what he does.

Ryan claimed in a radio interview that he had run a marathon in under three hours, but later said he had forgotten his real time and was just trying to give what he felt was a good time. His one official marathon time is estimated at just over four hours.


Paul Ryan Career

Early career

Betty Ryan allegedly begged her son to accept a congressional position in Senator Kasten's office as a legislative assistant, which he did after graduating in 1992. Ryan supplemented his earnings by serving as a waiter, as a fitness instructor, and in other capacities in his early days on Capitol Hill.

Ryan, a few months after Kasten lost to Democrat Russ Feingold in the 1992 election, became a speechwriter for Empower America (now FreedomWorks), a conservative advocacy group founded by Jack Kemp, Jeane Kirkpatrick, and William Bennett.

In the 1996 United States presidential election, Ryan spent time as a speechwriter for Kemp, the Republican vice presidential nominee. Kemp was Ryan's mentor, and Ryan has said he wielded a "broad advantage."

Ryan became the legislative director for the then-U.S. in 1995. Sam Brownback of Kansas is the Kansas congressman. In 1997, he returned to Wisconsin and spent a year as a marketing consultant for the construction company Ryan Incorporated Central, which was owned by his relatives.

'We're too posh for Wetherspoons': How well-heeled locals in Home Counties town are furious that the budget boozer is opening on their high street, February 17, 2024
EXCLUSIVE: The opening of a new pub in town is met with elation and awe. However, outrage in quaint Marlow, Buckinghamshire, is spreading when it is feared that an unwelcome visitor will wander their riverside streets - a Wetherspoon. On Market Square, where a M&Co store once stood, there is a call for a change of use from retail to 'public house/restaurant.' Some locals believe that it will'spoil the community's demographic profile' and attract unruly drinkers. 'There is no need for cheap food and cheap beer,' according to one local, lowering the tone and ruining the town.' However, residents in Henley-on-Thames, pictured above, claim that a Wetherspoon is a reward for their families.

Top Republicans praise Biden's "long overdue" airstrikes in Yemen against Houthi targets, but oppositionist conservatives and liberals join the Constitution's "blatant disregard" of the Constitution, January 12, 2024
The announcement that President Biden has launched airstrikes in Yemen against Iran-backed Houthis has split Congress, but not in favor of party lines. Speaker Mike Johnson said it is "long overdue," and a number of moderate Democrats applauded the Biden administration's change. 'We must hope that these measures point to a complete change in the Biden Administration's involvement in Iran and its allies, which are involved in such evil and wreaking such chaos,' Johnson wrote on X.

An inside look at the Supreme Court's decision that could rewrite the US tax code. As former GOP Speaker Paul Ryan condemns Biden's 'unconstitutional' litigation, former GOP speaker Paul Ryan condemns the 'unconstitutional' lawsuit, December 5, 2023
A Supreme Court contest over a $15,000 IRS bill filed by a Washington couple could potentially rewrite America's tax code. Oral arguments begin today in the case of Charles vs. the United States over a 2017 Trump-era tax law. The bill affects few Americans, but an overturning of it could change how income is taxed in the United States, cost the federal government hundreds of billions of dollars, and prevent Democrats from enforcing future levies on billionaires' wealth. Paul Ryan, the former House Speaker, characterized the challenge as "misguided" and that a portion of the tax code was "unconstitutional." The trial involves Charles and Kathleen Moore, of Redmond, Washington, who requested a refund on a $14,729 bill that was paid on their interest in an Indian firm.
