But Rep. Jim Jordan of OH, a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus and a leading congressional critic of the Justice Department's and FBI's handling of the Russia-Trump investigation, said Friday he is considering a bid for a leadership post.

Ryan's announcement came hours after the former chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Rep. Jim Jordan of OH said he was considering a run. In a statement, he said Republicans were "looking at other tools to cut spending" and added: "We have nothing to lose by making big changes".

First, House Republicans will nearly certainly lose seats in the midterm elections; the only real question is how many. He also wanted to overhaul Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program, turning them into voucher programs largely run by the states. "Bad idea", said Republican Representative Charlie Dent.

Bryce's "Iron Stache" persona has earned the 53-year-old Army veteran and ironworker the support of national Democratic donors after a cheeky campaign launch in which he offered to trade jobs with Ryan.

"My guess is he'll do what he can to help his party", says Professor Green. "I think we'll have a seamless transition".

House Majority Leader McCarthy, a California Republican known to be tighter with Trump, is expected to again seek the top leadership post that slipped from his reach in 2015.

"No disrespect to Paul, but quite frankly, you want somebody who's got skin in the game after the elections", Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nevada, told The Washington Post.

But Republican lobbyists told Bloomberg Law there's little sign conservatives can actually pass the kind of entitlement reform Ryan has long sought: Medicare premium support, often called "voucherizing" of Medicare. "If I were Paul Ryan, I'd go and do something else for a while".

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
