Why slave away in DC when you can make a million a year doing nothing?

Paul Ryan will easily add to his already considerable net worth if he opts to stray from his native Wisconsin to join a corporate board or dabble in Washington power struggles when he retires next year as speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“The kind of board that he would go after would probably pay between $250,000 and $300,000 a year and he could probably get three or four of them,” saidFred Foulkes, a professor of at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. “There would be dozens that would like to have him, particularly companies that have part of their business in key relationships with certain parts of government.”

He is egregiously doing the same thing that people like Cheney, Rumsfeld, and more than a couple of Dems routinely do.

I think the reasons he plans to bail from the H of R is that he sees a trainload of shit coming down the pike and he would prefer not to get any of it on himself, even though he richly deserves it. Hell, he’s got thirty more years of graft and double dipping in his future if he can find a path through this mess he’s helped create.

He’s no McConnell, satisfied to be his party’s leader in the Senate and kick back.

or possibly he could be diing it for the reasons he stated, going back to when he first took the job. i guess it’s easier for you, and the msm to insist your version of his reality is more accurate than his.
