“Speaker Paul Ryan” is likely to be a reality in a few days, and the Wisconsin Rep. had strong words for the debt ceiling increase deal brokered by President Obama along with current Speaker John Boehner.
According to The Daily Signal:
“Rep. Paul Ryan, the leading candidate to become the next House speaker, today criticized the massive budget deal negotiated by President Barack Obama and Speaker John Boehner.
“This is not the way to do the people’s business,” said Ryan, according toPolitico. “And under new management we are not going to do the people’s business this way. We are up against a deadline—that’s unfortunate. But going forward we can’t do the people’s business. As a conference we should’ve been meeting months ago to discuss these things to have a unified strategy going forward.”
As Republican lawmakers met Monday to learn details of the budget plan, Ryan reportedly didn’t speak a word at the meeting. Politico reported that Ryan had not reviewed the contents of the deal as of Tuesday morning.”
