Republicans plan to use debt ceiling fight as a bargaining chip in 2014

As the bipartisan budget deal moves to the Senate, where it faces opposition from some Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan is telling those on the right that the compromise is good for core conservative values.

“Look at the details, I say to those who are criticizing it. This is keeping our principle intact: no tax increases, net deficit reduction, permanent spending cuts in place of the across-the-board approach,” Mr. Ryan said on “Fox News Sunday.”

The Wisconsin Republican joined Sen. Patty Murray, Washington Democrat, last week to announce the two-year, $1.012 trillion plan, which would alleviate some of the sequester cuts and reduce the deficit by $23 billion over 10 years.

The bill passed the House on Thursday despite criticism from both sides.

The Senate is expected to begin considering the bill Tuesday and will have to reach a 60-vote threshold to forward the plan to the president’s desk.
