President Obama, Ryan argued, “is giving us a path of debt and decline.”
”We owe the country an alternative path if we don’t like the path the president’s taking us on,” he said. “Whoever our nominee is going to be owes the country that choice of two futures; we’re helping them put this together. And each of these people running for president have all given their various ideas and reforms with perfectly jive or consistent with what we’re proposing here.”
The GOP White House hopefuls – who were campaigning in Illinois and Louisiana on Tuesday -- did not immediately issue statements on the Ryan budget.
