The legacy of House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, will not be the glowing tributes given him by some. Instead, it will be the massive debt passed down to our nation's younger people and his failure to stand up to the extremes of our current president.
Because of Ryan's enormous tax cut for the wealthy, future generations will have to get by with even fewer services and benefits that most of them will need. By letting President Donald Trump abuse the rule of law, Speaker Ryan is heading the United States toward a possible constitutional crises that could jeopardize how our country continues to function. It could even set us up for nuclear war.
This is hardly how a true leader serves the people of this country.
