Ryan: The President Must Offer Solutions
Our challenges are too great for the President to sit on the sidelines.
WASHINGTON—Upon passage of H.R. 444, “The Require a PLAN Act,” House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin issued the following statement:
“I commend Congressman Price for introducing this bill, and I was pleased to join my colleagues in supporting its passage.
“But I wish it hadn’t come to this. President Obama has a legal and moral obligation to offer solutions to our fiscal challenges. But so far, he hasn’t. Using the numbers from his last budget proposal, the federal budget wouldn’t have achieved balance—ever. And just this week, he missed the statutory deadline to submit his budget—for the fourth time in five years.
