Paul Ryan is on track to become the most important person of the House of Representatives. Representative Dave Camp of Michigan announced he will not seek re-election this fall, paving the way for Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin to become perhaps the most powerful member of the House. If he does indeed win the chairmanship, Ryan's strong name recognition would instantly bring star power to the committee. He would be in charge of policies governing Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
