A Preview of Paul Ryan’s Response

Below a pic of Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) preparing to deliver the Republican response to the president’s state of the union address, followed by an excerpt released on Ryan’s facebook page:

“Americans are skeptical of both political parties, and that skepticism is justified – especially when it comes to spending.  So hold all of us accountable.  In this very room, the House will produce, debate, and advance a budget.  Last year – in an unprecedented failure– Congress chose not to pass, or even propose a budget.  The spending spree continued unchecked.  We owe you a better choice and a different vision.  Our forthcoming budget is our obligation to you – to show you how we intend to do things differently … how we will cut spending to get the debt down… help create jobs and prosperity … and reform government programs.”
