Paul Ryan’s retirement is getting off to a rocky start, after the Republican Congressman learned he is not receiving a generous pension from the NRA like he expected.
Ryan said he assumed he was getting a pension from the NRA after working a full-time job for them for years.
“Isn’t that what employers are supposed to do for their most dedicated workers?”
However NRA President Wayne LaPierre countered that Ryan was not technically their employee, and he should look to the US Government instead as his de jure employer. Ryan vehemently disagrees.
“How can they be my primary employer when I get paid more by, and take my orders from, the NRA?”
Employment lawyers said though the facts are technically against him, Ryan may still have a case based on his behavior.
“Here’s a guy who has steadfastly acting in the interests of the NRA and not his electors or the public at large, which I believe we can argue very successfully in court.”
The NRA responded that they might consider making future payments to Ryan similar to a pension, but only if he can make himself useful.
“Getting that bump stock ban reversed would be a start.”
