House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that Congress will turn next year to spending cuts to try to lower the deficit, saying that’s the second step after cutting taxes.

Speaking at a town hall forum in Virginia hosted by Fox News, Mr. Ryan fended off questions about the GOP’s tax cuts deepening deficits by as much as $1.5 trillion over the next decade, saying the real work of deficit-cutting will come from a faster-growing economy and from reforming big entitlement programs.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do on cutting spending,” Mr. Ryan said.

A number of conservatives, particularly in the Senate, have expressed concern over the revenue lost due to the tax cuts, saying the government’s fiscal picture can’t handle that.

    Does Paul Ryan think we are give people to much Social Security? Do we give to much healthcare to people? These are the areas he is looking to steal money from to give to the corporations in tax breaks. Both these areas are funded by taxes on our pay checks. Also maybe he should look at cutting spending first before he cuts the governments income. Why not cut the waste out of the military spending first? The military spending is in many cases just more welfare for the big companies and the state with powerful Senators. Even the military has come out against some of the places money is being spent. Ryan doesn’t have the best interest of the people in mind or even cutting the size of government. He just sees money that he can give to his buddies and if the average citizen has to lose to do it that’s not important to Mr. Ryan.

      Who ever gave you a paycheck Bob? You’ve claimed to be a business owner with many employees that you paid. Who paid you? You need to get your lies straight but then what could we expect from an ass hole draft dodger?

        You don’t realize that the officers of a corporation get a pay check? I guess when you are a low leave employee everything that goes on in management is a mystery to you. Even CEO’s pay social security and Medicare taxes.

    Isn’t it odd that Ryan “spoke at a Town Hall in Virginia”? He won’t go to his home state to hold Town Halls because he doesn’t want to answer the tough questions and take criticism from his constituents. The only reason he stays in office is the democrats tell their supporters to vote for Ryan because a Rino is more valuable to the democrat party than a democrat politician.

  • Maxx says:

    Anybody actually believe Paul Ryan (aka Paul Rino)? I sure don’t. He is nothing more than Boehner 2.0. Everything out of Ryan’s “forked tongue” mouth is pure bovine excrement the same as his mentor John Boehner. The people of Wisconsin should be ashamed of themselves for keeping this clown in office.
