Rep. Paul Ryan To Take On Social Security, Medicare In New Budget

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) appeared on the Monday night edition of FOX News' "Hannity." Rep. Ryan goes through several charts that project our debt, shows spending in FY 2010 and what he will propose in the budget for the next fiscal year.

Rep. Ryan made it clear he is not interested in shutting down the government, however he says he will not rubber-stamp any spending increases proposed by President Obama.

"We're not interested in actually rubber-stamping these elevated spending levels that President Obama pushed through two years ago. The kind of spending increases he got on government agency budgets, 24% on average, you throw stimulus on top, that was an 84% increase. So, what the President's budget tries to do is lock in all those big spending gains. We don't want to accept that. We're not looking for a shutdown, but we're not going to rubber-stamp these spending levels. We want spending cuts in return and that's what this is about," Rep. Paul said.
