Ryan: GOP Will Decide After Holidays What to ‘Accomplish Out of This Debt-Limit Fight’

House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan said this morning that Republicans would try to get concessions from Democrats during this winter’s debt-limit fight.

“We as a caucus — along with our Senate counterparts — are going to meet and discuss what it is we’re going to want out of the debt limit,” Ryan told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.

“We don’t want nothing out of this debt limit,” Ryan added. “We’re going to decide what it is we’re going to accomplish out of this debt-limit fight.”

Republicans would meet after the holidays, he said, to discuss the matter.
