Rep. Paul Ryan has released a short preview of his State of the Union response speech. The first line from the teaser clip is encouraging:
Americans are skeptical of both political parties, and that skepticism is justified—especially when it comes to spending. So hold all of us accountable. In this very room, the House will produce, debate, and advance a budget. Last year—in an unprecedented failure—Congress chose not to pass, or even propose a budget. The spending spree continued unchecked. We owe you a better choice and a different vision.
