The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed Congress a year ago without a single Democratic vote. Critics of the law argued it would explode the deficit and disproportionately benefit corporations and wealthy individuals.

Ryan is retiring from the House next month after opting not to seek reelection. He joined the House in 1999, and has served as Speaker since 2015.

He will deliver a farewell address to the House on Wednesday.
