The Ryan budget and the austerity argument within the GOP

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

For the third time in the last three years, the Republican-controlled House today will vote in favor of a budget proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that, by anyone's calculation, prizes austerity.

Few -- if any -- House Republicans will vote against the Ryan budget (Four Republicans voted "no" in 2011; 10 voted "no" in 2012.) But, increasingly there is a debate within the GOP about whether pushing austerity and a relentless focus on the bottom line is the right policy and political path for the party.

Paul Ryan: Debt is ‘not an excuse to cut with abandon’

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) delivered a wonky speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, just a week after releasing the latest version of his House Republican budget.
