Since 2015, Paul Ryan, a Republican from the state of Wisconsin, has led the House of Representatives as House speaker. The majority party in the House choices its speaker. And the position is important not only for its House leadership but because it's also in line to the presidency, behind the president and vice president.

自2015年起,来自威斯康辛州的共和党人保罗·瑞安(Paul Ryan)领导众议院成为众议院议长。众议院占占多数的共和党选择了他们的发言人。这一职位不仅对其众议院领导地位很重要,而且对总统和副总统的总统职位也很重要。

Speaker Ryan played a major role in the Republican tax reform bill that was signed into law last December. He's helped roll back banking rules that were enacted under Democratic leadership and he's helped the Republican Party raised funding for the upcoming midterm elections this fall.

在去年12月签署成为法律的共和党税收改革法案中,议长瑞安发挥了重要作用。他帮助扭转了民主党领导下制定的银行规则,并帮助共和党为即将到来的中期选举筹集资金。

So, why did he announce yesterday that he'd leave the House at the end of his term in January?

那么,为什么他昨天宣布他将在1月份任期结束时离开众议院呢?

REP. PAUL RYAN , SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE: Look, you all know me. I didn't take this job to get the gavel in the first place. I'm not a guy who thinks about it like that. This really was two things, I have accomplished much of what I came here to do and my kids aren't getting any younger, and if I stay, they're only going to know me as a weekend dad and that's just something I consciously can't do. And that's really it right there.

保罗•瑞安:听着,你们都认识我。我一开始并没有接受这份工作。我不是。这确实是表面大家看到了那种人。自从任职这份工作以来,我已经完成了两件事,如果我继续任职,我的孩子也不再年轻,他们只会知道我是一个周末的爸爸,这是我不想的事情。但情况就是如此。

AZUZ: Speaker Ryan hasn't always seen eye to eye with President Trump though they're both Republicans and some political analysts say Democrats have a good chance of winning control of the House in November's midterm elections. So, they see Speaker Ryan's departure as a bad sign for Republicans.

阿祖兹:尽管共和党和一些政治分析人士都认为,民主党人很有可能在11月的中期选举中赢得众议院的控制权,但瑞安议长与特朗普的看法并不总是一致。因此,他们认为瑞安的离开对共和党来说是个坏兆头。

Ryan says he's confident that Republicans will keep control of the House, that he doesn't think the individual elections will depend on whether he stays on as speaker. Ryan's been in Congress since 1999. He was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2012, though he wasn't elected.

瑞安说,他相信共和党人将继续控制众议院,他认为个人选举不会取决于自己是否继续担任议长。瑞安自1999年以来一直在国会工作。他是2012年共和党副总统候选人,尽管他没有当选。

Some Democrats joined Republicans in praising Paul Ryan's work as House speaker.

一些民主党人加入了共和党人的行列,称赞保罗·瑞安作为众议院议长的工作。
