Paul Ryan Elected Speaker

Washington — This morning, Paul D. Ryan (R-WI) N/A% was elected Speaker of the House.  Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“Speaker Ryan has an opportunity to unite Republicans by embracing a bold, conservative policy agenda. This moment did not occur by chance. Conservatives have delivered Republicans historic majorities in both the House and Senate, and they have a right to expect results. 

“No member of Congress is above accountability. Heritage Action will continue to advocate positive, pro-growth policies that provide opportunity for all and favoritism to none, while providing real-time accountability when leaders and members stray.”
