Paul Ryan: Steve Scalise Will Have to ‘Re-Learn’ How to Walk
LONG ROAD AHEAD
House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Monday that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise will be able to walk again but will have to “re-learn how to do it,” as he continues to recover from gunshot wounds he received in June at the GOP congressional baseball practice. “He’ll be okay, but he’s in a rehab hospital now, out of the intensive car unit,” Ryan said at a CNN town hall in Wisconsin. “He’s just got a long road ahead of him, but he’s going to be okay.” Ryan said Scalise joined the House Republican conference call earlier on Monday and was in good spirits. Scalise was shot in the hip and underwent multiple surgeries after a gunman targeted the baseball practice because the members of Congress were Republicans.
