Republicans Shift Back to Ryan Budget
Posted at 8:45 a.m. on Dec. 3, 2012
During the presidential campaign, Mitt Romney seemed to actively distance himself from his running mate Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) Medicare reform proposals. Now that the election is over and Romney has quietly left the political spotlight, The Hill reports that Republicans are quickly returning to the Ryan plan.
“Ryan, the House Budget Committee Chairman, had preserved Obama’s Medicare cuts in two consecutive budget proposals that repealed the rest of the Affordable Care Act. Ryan is now back at work crafting his next budget, and Republicans on his committee say the $716 billion in Medicare cuts will likely survive.”
