House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) charged that President Obama and the Democrats are unwilling to compromise on the budget during an appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press Sunday morning.
“The president and his party leaders in the Senate are refusing to do anything to address this debt crisis,” Ryan said.
The House Budget Committee chairman said that who wins in November will determine how or if the debt crisis is resolved.
Ryan, whose proposed budget received 41 votes in last week, has predicted a grim outcome if Obama gets re-elected.
He suggests that another next four years of an Obama presidency would “keep kicking the can” and deliver “empty promises to voters.”
“Then we’ll probably have a debt crisis…in the next presidency if we stay on this path then those empty promises become broken promised to seniors,” Ryan said.
With the tax increases that are set to rise in 2013 under Obama, Ryan warns, “If the president is unwilling to sign legislation to change or prevent current law we’re going to have a huge tax increase. Then we’re going to have a debt crisis, that’s his version of responsibility.”
When asked about a possible VP slot with Romney, Ryan refused to get into the speculation and said he is focused on being a Wisconsin congressman and the Budget Committee chairman.
