Paul Ryan Expected At CR Vote

September 10, 2012
Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will break from the stump this week to take part in Thursday's House vote on a bill to keep government funded beyond the Oct. 1 start of the new fiscal year and eliminate the threat of shutdowns until the next Congress.

Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said on Monday he expects Ryan -- the House Budget Committee chairman - to vote in favor of the six-month stop-gap measure, even though doing so would represent a concession by Ryan and conservatives to Democrats.

"I don't like to speak for other members, but I've got the impression he will," said McCarthy, who said he'd spoken directly with Ryan.

McCarthy confidently predicted the bill will pass; he noted in a meeting with reporters the bill was negotiated between Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate. "Yes. CRs are bipartisan bills ... I expect there to be a bipartisan vote," said McCarthy.
