Laura Ingraham hosted Rep. Paul Ryan.
Ryan said he's used to the demonizing of his budget and that balancing the budget shouldn't be that hard. He noted that the White House hasn't submitted a budget that was due in February. He stated that the poor and disadvantaged are most hurt by this all. He said all the budgets being proposed having spending increases in them.
Ryan said that in a debt crisis interest rates skyrocket as well as prices and that it is coming to the US with our debt. He said the left is saying there is no crisis and that if the GOP says there is one before it happens, the party loses credibility.
Ryan spoke of the handicaps placed on budget prjections from the Congressional Budget Office and with pro-growth policies, the budget can be balanced much sooner. Ryan said Social Security cannot be placed in the budget. He said Medicare reform hasn't been put in place so that people can prepare for the reforms that are needed.
