  • Bob Goodlatte (VA), Judiciary Committee, term-limited
  • Trey Gowdy (SC), Oversight Committee, assumed position in June 2017

I hope "Ron" will feel free and untethered to speak his mind (assuming he still has one) now.

"Ron" has presided over the biggest expansion of the budget deficit under a Republican speaker, and the biggest expansion of the deficit ever while the economy is growing.

I guess something is fishy. He is relatively young and it is rare for a politician at this age to leave. Either he is afraid of something where he may be dragged into or already in and want to avoid getting into the mess.
