Congress: Ryan budget, an election blueprint

“The House easily passed Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) $1.028 trillion fiscal blueprint today, ending months of GOP infighting over spending levels but scuttling hopes of passing the appropriations bills in regular order this year,” Roll Call writes.

House GOP leaders on Thursday brandished their newly passed 2013 budget as the foundation of the Republican fall election campaign,” The Hill writes. “The Democratic response is ‘bring it on.’ They said they are eager to run against what they are dubbing the Ryan-Romney plan, which they say destroys Medicare, hobbles the economy and provides a tax break windfall to the rich.”
