Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI District 1) listened for over an hour as dozens of people expressed anxiety over the nation's budget and other issues at a listening session in his hometown.  While his comments on fiscal matters were consistent with his past views, his comments on the issue of gay civil rights were markedly different.

More than 50 people showed up at a hotel conference room wanting answers about why there is no movement on the sequester or the budget.

Congressman Ryan shifted the blame for both of those issues on to President Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate, saying he has offered bills to stop the sequester which they have flatly rejected.
