Babin Statement on Speaker Paul Ryan

Washington, April 11, 2018

Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) released the following statement:

“I would like to thank Paul Ryan for his service to the House and America.  Our country is a better place because of his leadership in turning our historic Tax Cuts & Jobs Act into law.  He was also ahead of his time in forecasting the looming debt crisis we now face as a nation and providing bold solutions to address it - critical work that we in Congress must do and that I am confident he will assist us with as a private citizen.  I also want to thank him for his many trips to Texas and his hands-on leadership to help our communities get the resources we needed to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.  Finally, on a more personal note, as a fellow outdoors-man and family man, we share a commitment to putting our families first and a love for the outdoors as avid bow hunters. 

In the coming months, we will have discussions and make decisions about the future of our leadership in the House.  But right now, our focus must remain squarely on keeping the House in Republican hands and the Speaker’s gavel away from Nancy Pelosi.  Those who step up and lead us to accomplish that goal will earn the right to lead the House as Speaker.”
