House Speaker Paul Ryan, an asshole, is quitting his job.
The Congressjerk announced that he would not seek re-election in 2018. He added that now that he's overseen adding $1.5 trillion to the US deficit with a tax bill that transfers enormous wealth to the 0.1%, his work in Congress is done.
He is planning to spend his retirement naked in a bathtub full of hundred dollar bills, with his family in Wisconsin.
Ryan insisted that the pending knife-duels among Republican leadership contenders would not be a distraction during the 2018 mid-term elections.
Ryan took over as House Speaker after ousting John Boehner, an ex-Congressjerk who now peddles weed.
