Rep. Paul Ryan's Budget Assumes the Repeal of Obamacare

( - "We think we owe the American people a balanced budget," Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, said on Sunday.

Ryan (R-Wis.) this week will release a plan to balance the budget in ten years -- by reducing the rate of spending growth and by repealing "Obamacare" and its imminent Medicaid expansions.

"Are you saying that as part of your budget, you would repeal, you assume the repeal of Obamacare?" "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace asked Ryan.

"Yes," said Ryan.

"Well, that's not going to happen," Wallace replied.

"Well, we believe it should. That's the point," said Ryan. "This is what budgeting is all about, Chris. It's about making tough choices to fix our country's problems.
