Asked what he would be willing to give up to address the U.S. debt crisis, Rep. Paul Ryan stood his ground Tuesday and insisted it was Democrats who needed to cede ground.
“I’m not interested in negotiating with myself on television. It’s futile, in my opinion,” he said on CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report.”
Ryan laid blame on the Democrats and gave Republicans the credit for their proposals.
“The Senate has chosen not to pass a budget in three years,” he said. “The president has chosen to disavow the fiscal commission, to not put a budget that attempts to deal with any of these issues. We have passed solutions.”
