House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., does not believe that his new budget plan would put the eventual GOP presidential nominee at risk.
“No, I really don’t," Ryan said at a Tuesday news conference, a few hours after unveiling his 2013 budget blueprint. "I think all of our candidates have campaigned on these various ideas. Our nominee owes it to the country to give them a choice of two futures."
“We’re helping him do that,” Ryan said, arguing that his budget with its sweeping entitlement program changes should be embraced as an alternative to the “path of debt and decline” that President Obama is offering.
“Whoever our nominee is going to be owes the country that choice of two futures,” Ryan said.
