Paul Ryan Wants More Family Time if Elected Speaker

House Republicans are in a leadership crisis as there is no clear candidate for the next Speaker of the House. Paul Ryan (who ran as the VP nominee in 2012) seems to have the support needed but has been hesitant about becoming Speaker of the House as the new job would give him less time to spend with his family. Which is quite ironic because Ryan has never really supported bills that would give maternity leave or paternity leave to working families. So he supports family values, but only for the elite eh?
