Brit Hume Interviews Paul Ryan On Budget, Medicare And Tax Cuts

In his first one-on-one interview since being named Romney's Vice Presidential Candidate, Paul Ryan (R-WI) sits down in Denver, with FNC's Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume, to discuss Medicare, Obamacare, Budget Balancing, and Tax Cuts.

Paul Ryan on Medicare: "We’re the ones who are offering a plan to save Medicare, to protect Medicare, to strengthen Medicare. We’re the ones who are not raiding Medicare to pay for Obamacare. We’re the ones who are repealing President Obama’s 15-person bureaucratic board that will put price controls on Medicare that will lead to denied care for current seniors. We’re the ones continuing the guarantee of Medicare for people in or near retirement. And you have to reform it for the younger generation in order to make the commitment stick for the current generation. President Obama is actually damaging Medicare for current seniors. It’s irrefutable. And that’s why I think this is a debate we want to have, and that’s a debate we’re going to win."

Paul Ryan on Obama and Obamacare: "Here’s the issue: what President Obama is trying to do with his Medicare plan is he’s trying to count a dollar twice. He’s trying to suggest that these Medicare cuts can help Medicare. It doesn’t because he is taking those dollars from Medicare to spend on Obamacare. We prevent that from happening in the House budget. But lets be clear here, Brit. I am on the Romney ticket. And what Mitt Romney is proposing is to repeal all of Obamacare. And in the house repeatedly I have voted with that position, I support that position, I’m pleased to support the position of getting rid of every piece of Obamacare, including the cuts to Medicare, which are used to pay for Obamacare."
